In 2004, Golden Gavel Auctions bought and renovated a former East Windsor, Connecticut supermarket into the modern auction house it is today. With parking for 280 cars, the 18,000 square foot auction house easily displays thousands of items and seats 350+ auction enthusiasts. Golden Gavel holds 70 auctions a year, turning tens of thousands of items into money for their clients.
Golden Gavel’s owner, auctioneer, and appraiser, Patrick Soucy, started selling antiques and household items at age 13. He opened his first antique business at age 18. Patrick is a graduate of the Mendenhall School of Auctioneering, a member of the National Auctioneers Association and a member of the Certified Appraisers Guild of America. Patrick is also a USPAP certified appraiser.
Golden Gavel’s auctioneer and appraiser, Ralph Labozzo, holds a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Connecticut. Ralph’s been in the business for 20+ years. He is a graduate of Missouri Auction School and earned certification in American Arts through a graduate-level program at New York’s famous Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Like Patrick, Ralph is a USPAP certified appraiser.
Among the many advantages Golden Gavel Auctions, LLC provides are:
We hold auctions every week at 7 p.m. on Thursday -- not every month like most competitors do. Your items go to auction quickly and you get paid faster than you would elsewhere.
As seen on HGTV! Golden Gavel Auctions was featured in the TV series "Cash in the Attic" on HGTV.
With 30 years of experience, a professional staff and frequent auction promotions, Golden Gavel Auctions stays at the top of the list for thousands of collectors, dealers, e-bay entrepreneurs and retail buyers.
Golden Gavel makes bidding easy:
Collectors and dealers know a good auction house when they see one. They keep coming back to Golden Gavel Auctions. Half the average weekly crowd of 350+ attend regularly. We welcome and encourage the public to attend.
You can see everything from every seat in the air conditioned, climate-controlled, well-lit auction gallery. Every seat provides a full view of every item being auctioned. Golden Gavel’s multiple, ceiling-mounted 19” color TV monitors provide everyone with a front row view.
Golden Gavel offers three large box trucks and a full-time staff for packing, moving and broom cleaning of entire households, estates and foreclosures. We've helped many clients with homes for sale downsize. Property auctions are an efficient way to downsize. We are specialists at it. We cater to every customer’s needs.
