Sydney Rare Book Auctions has moved to a bigger and better venue at C11/372-428 Wattle Street, Ultimo, NSW. The move was in part prompted by growth in the business that has seen increased sales over the last few years and growing demand for the material we handle.
Auctioneer Paul Feain is excited by what he’s seen in recent times. “We have been quietly going about our business, gradually improving on systems and also revenue, and this has meant we’ve outgrown our prior establishment. It’s fantastic to see that in a day where technology is seeing people turn away from traditional printed books, that the world of rare and antique books, maps and ephemera is still strong.”
The Ultimo venue is not only larger in size but also provides a lovely space for displaying items and holding auctions. Also of note is the intention to hold bi-annual Sydney Book Fares on location, as well as regular social and educational functions on all things relating to printed material.
“Sydney Rare Books is a business that’s as much about building a strong book-loving community as it is about selling things. By having passionate and well informed collectors and introducing new people into the fold we will have a better future for the trade.”
The team at Sydney Rare Books looks forward to showing you our new venue when we formally open the doors on the evening of October 19th ahead of our October 21st sale. Prior to that, if you want to pay us a visit, feel free – just ring in advance so we can grab you a coffee!
