Whittons’ first auction enjoys selling success in Honiton
PUBLISHED: 11:30 22 March 2015
Last week saw the first auction of the year take place for Whittons Auctioneers and Valuers.
Owners Edward and Maria Whitton said they were ‘delighted’ with the turnout.
Despite a shaky start on the first auction sale after the internet went down across the South West, the rest of the week proved a success. The biggest sale of the week was a model traction engine which was snapped up for £15,000.
Mr Whitton said: “I was expecting the train to do OK – that’s why we left that lot till the end. But I didn’t expect it to do that well.”
Auctions are held every two weeks on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
