Many local Michigan collectors and dealers are excited to hear that Sterling Stamps of Brighton, Michigan and Kingbrook MBS of Shepherd, Michigan have begun to start-up a Michigan auction firm targeting local and worldwide collectors and dealers.  With a couple key Michigan auction houses now retired, there seems to be room for a new premiere auction establishment.  We want to keep it simple, friendly, and efficient like old time mail and floor auctions but utilize the internet for greater visibility like today’s auctions. Our goal is to work closely with our consignors – listing lots the way you want us to list them, agreeing on start prices, offering low consignment fees, and of course, paying our consignors on time. With this goal, consignments are already coming in for a February 2016 auction.  So look for details on STERLING KINGBROOK AUCTIONS right now.
