As auctioneers and valuers, we are passionate about the concept of a circular economy rather than the current linear economy that dominates our spending habits. Encouraging more people into the auction industry is an exciting challenge and one that has enormous societal and environmental benefits. The linear economy model of ‘take-make-dispose’ is one that is fast catching up with us as the finite natural resources required rapidly run out. Antiques, retro and vintage goods are ‘GREEN’, and the auction industry has therefore excellent sustainable credentials. Add to this the opportunity to purchase quality and beautiful items at a reduced price mean the benefits for the consumer are undeniable.
