This weekend we are proud to be presenting two very special estates that we have relocated to our auction gallery. One is a thirty year Chatham County estate of collectors and flea market and auction junkies. Our client’s dabbled in selling at antique malls and auctions, but alway kept the best and most interesting for themselves. Now they are selling those flavorful furnishings.
Our other client lived in Africa for many years, mingling with the tribes people and villages. She has returned to her family place in Henderson, NC and decided it time to liquidate her fine collection of authentic African artifacts.
Please plan to join us and spends the day for absolutely fresh to the market merchandise with fabulous flair!

Check back often!
Hope to see you at the auction!
Join us this Sunday for a full day of auction treasure hunting!
Saturday was a harmonic convergence as the crowds gathered for the last, The Last Unicorn auction. We were blessed with cool breezes, low humidity, roaving minstrels and hand cooked barbque. Gaines added colorful commentary and provenance as each of his beloved objects crossed the auction block. Antiques, garden statuary, architectural elements and whimsy found new owners. Folks made new friends, people hoped and dreamed and planned where their new treasure would be placed. We laughed, we cried. It was all good… So long to a Chapel Hill institution situated in a magical forest in Chatham county, NC!
The Last Unicorn will be closing its doors as it’s colorful, creative and master of iron, Gaines Steer, chases the rainbow of retirement! Mercer Smith Auction is proud to be assisting him in the liquidation of the contents of his home, as well as his iron sculptures, gates, fencing, wall plaques, stained glass windows and all of his whimsical garden objects.
The sale is being held this coming Saturday, August 29 at 10:00 am. Please plan to make a day of it! We will also be offering a preview on Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. An online catalogue with hundreds of photos is available at: http://www.auctionzip.com/cgi-bin/auctionlist.cgi?vuid=1034
