Collective Auction Sale
Hexham & Northern Marts conducted their Autumn Collective Auction Sale at which close to 2,000 lots went under the hammer during a combined 12 hours of selling which, for the first time, was conducted in three separate sale rings. As is now the norm at such sales, well over 500 registered buyers were in attendance and bidding for all classes of goods was steady throughout, particularly for the consignments of plants, bulbs, shrubs and trees and a selection of top quality garden furniture. Many buyers commented on the new electronic display boards as a tremendous innovation which allowed buyers in each ring to keep track of the progress in the other rings.
