Auction Details

Please join us in exciting Santa Fe the week before Indian Market this August for what promises to be an historic event!

We are featuring the collection of long time collector, hobbyist, Indian trader, and feather artist Bob Wills from Dumont, NJ. We are honored to have Bob's beadwork collection to offer along with other interesting things he's gathered over the years.

We are also very happy to be selling an old collection of beadwork, baskets, cornhusks, horse gear, and other great pieces all collected in the Columbia River Basin in the 50s and 60s. All pieces are documented in the original owner Tommy Thompson's ledger, with interesting notes and stories.

In addition, we have accumulated some really great pieces for this auction! There are more fantastic beadwork pieces, a huge assortment of quality baskets, several high-end Navajo rugs, some very rare old Pueblo pottery, and the best group of NW Coast and Eskimo items we have ever had!

And as always, lots of great Indian jewelry , some really rare original Native and Western art, a collection of Apache items, kachinas carvings, Santa Fe antiques, antique tradebeads, and a number of interesting and hard to find antique, western, and Mexican collectibles - over 800 pieces in all!

Previews both days begin at 8:00 am (MDT). Auction times are Saturday at noon and Sunday at 10:00 am. Live online, absentee, and phone bidding are all available.
