While most attention was on our Rattlers’ Victorious, first game of the season last Saturday, a new business not-so-quietly opened its doors in Navasota, giving both local antique dealers and lovers, a whole new way of doing business every week.
After her first auction here, Auction Southwest co-owner Barbra Brooks told Navasota News the antique business is growing, and with Bryan College Station to the north and Houston to the south, Navasota is prime real-estate.
Brooks said her team goes all over the state to bring in pieces, so the ones that do reach the auction-block any Saturday can range from a railroad crossing sign to a cabinet that dates from the 1700’s.
Brook’s partner, Christopher Futur added the auction house has received a lot of support from city officials, and he hopes that with a few more licenses, he will eventually be able to auction off antique firearms.
And while the duo did not say when, they did promise that sometime the auction will be offering a 1914 James Motor Cycle, an open road racecar from the early part of this century and a roadster from the 1920’s. So whether you make a bid or not, one thing is for certain; some interesting items are coming to the Texas Blues Capital.
For more information about Auction Southwest, call 832-299-96-79 or stop by the auction house at 1100 Manley St at 7 Saturday evening for the next auction.
