Architectural Salvage sale at Gaze

Gaze, Diss Norfolk

Gaze Auction Rooms will be holding a sale of architectural salvage on Saturday 11th October. The sale conducted by Carl Willows will include 760 lots, starting at 10am at Saleroom 1 & Sale Meadow.

COMMENTS Carl Willows on the Architectural Salvage sale
"It was a dreadful sale, I was very disappointed with the small number of attendees and those who did come stood around the side's talking about the current economic crisis. Interestingly out of the top seven lots all but one were stone paving and the other was an eighteenth century oak plank. Yorkstone seems to be fetching around £100 per square meter, which is similar to what oak flooring is commanding.

Although it certainly seemed that the economic storm had hit this sale we are optimistic for the future especially now the economic problems seem to be global, so we remain confident for future sales."
