Online Auction!

Time to get excited! We are gearing up for our first ever Online Auction and it’s going to be beautiful! An incredible and eclectic mix that you’ve come to expect from Katherine’s Auction & Appraisal Service.

Many people have asked us,

“Why haven’t you done this sooner?”

And we’ll be honest, its a lot more work to get the quality that we wanted. When we’re setting up for a regular Live Auction you take 2-3 photos for the featured items. When you’re setting up for an Online Auction, in our case, you take 60 photos for a dozen items. We want you to be as informed as possible when placing your online bids. We hope we can make you proud!

Why are you hosting your auction on

We initially wanted to run the auctions off of our own website, right here. We wanted it to be seamless. But unfortunately our HTML coding isn’t up to snuff and we wanted to be able to bring you the quality you deserve, dear client. If we are able to get our own auction site figured out we’ll let you know. However, being a very small family-owned operation it is something we needed to delegate to the “big guys” for the time being.

“OKAY! So when is it?”

We’re so glad you asked!

Bidding will Start at 8:00 am on Tuesday, September 8th.

The entire auction will be available for viewing online starting September 1 by 5:00pm. You’ll be able to find a link right here on our site or search for us on

In-Person Inspection is scheduled for Thursday September 3rd from 11 am until 3 pm. All auction items are housed inside The Auction House at Memories, located at 400 Randolph Drive, Appleton WI 54913.

If you require a different inspection time, one may be arranged for you if you contact the auctioneer. Masks will be required, per Wisconsin State Mandate, and social distancing will be encouraged.

Bidding will conclude at 7:30 pm on Monday, September 14th.

Item Pick-Up will be Thursday, September 17th from 11 am to 5 pm. Again, if you require a different time, you will need to arrange one with the auctioneer. If you would like to have your item shipped we will be happy to assist in that, at your cost. This is not an option that is offered directly on our auction, and you will need to contact the auctioneer at the conclusion of the auction.

Unpaid or unclaimed items will be assumed abandoned after September 24th. You will receive a single courtesy call. It is your responsibility to contact us if an issue arises.

Terms: All items are sold as is and without guarantee. 5.5% Sales Tax for local persons will be collected. 5% Buyer’s Premium collected on applicable sales. Cash, WI Check and ALL Credit Cards accepted in person at pick up, without fee. Credit Card payments via PayPal available online.
