Norfolk, UK - "Drizzling, perfect weather," said Carl Willows about last Saturday's architectural salvage and garden statuary sale at Gaze's in Diss. "The sale had an interesting variety of lots. The trade to private bidders ratio was about fifty fifty - and was a good mixture with new trade faces, and privates new to the area who were buying well but selectively, and will be back. There was one American phone bidder, and no continentals - so it was a thoroughly British affair." The percentage sold by lot was somewhere around 80 per cent.

Top lots, tying at 1,400, were seven staddles and 25sqyds of 18thC oak floorboards.

The forthcoming rural and domestic bygones sale on Saturday 26th November has enamel signs, shop cabinets and packaging, interesting lighting, a sleigh, fruit crate and chitting boxes, as well as the usual sort of mix.
