New Brunswick, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2019 -- On October 24th, Bodnar's Auctions will host its first annual Bodnar's at the Jersey Shore, which will take place at the Convention Hall in beautiful downtown Cape May, NJ. The Thursday sale will begin at 9 am with an Antique Roadshow style appraisal. Men, women, boys, and girls can purchase a ticket for $12 and get up to 2 items appraised by one of two appraisers that will be at the event. There will also be a short talk on antiques and collectibles, and what is "in" in the market right now! Specializing in home liquidation and estate auctions in NJ, Bodnar's Auction is the largest auction house in central New Jersey, and proceeds from the tickets will be donated to the Cape May Community Food Closet.

Beginning at 12 pm, the auction fun will begin! Joseph Bodnar of Bodnar's Auction sales has over 25 years of experience in the auction industry, and he is a sight to see in action! If you have never been to a live auction and have heard the chant of an auctioneer or felt the excitement of people live bidding, then this is going to be a real treat! "The art of auctioneering is a small market here in New Jersey," says Joseph Bodnar. "So many places do online-only auctions and call themselves an auction house, but you can never understand the excitement that comes along with a crowd that is revved up and ready to bid!"

As each item comes up, hands shoot into the air, all vying to get the auctioneer's attention and be the next bid! Each is hoping they will be the ones to take home the item they covet so much! It is a real thrill. If you have never been to an auction before, this is the perfect place to start. Joe's staff is so warm and inviting, they will help walk you around, show you the items personally, and help take away the intimidating factor from a live auction. They will literally hold your hand until you are comfortable and ready to bid on your own!

This auction is full of unique and interesting finds. Joseph Bodnar and his staff have been scouring estates for months looking for just the right mix of items to bring to this sale. There are fantastic early nautical items such as model ships, clipper flags, lanterns, and more. This sale will also include many collectibles such as Swarovski, Zsolnay, Royal Crown Derby, and Herend. He handpicked many beautiful pieces of art glass, including signed Vandermark, a beautiful art glass signed woman, and many other pieces. Not long ago, he came across a collection of early advertising he thought would be perfect for this sale. It has a collection of tin signs, buckets, jars, boxes, spool cabinets, bottles, glass signs, and so much more.

There will also be a fantastic gold coin collection, including many early $20 gold pieces, gold Sovereigns, and many gold foreign coins. You can't think about Cape May without thinking Victorian. There is a beautiful collection of Victorian furniture, including sofas, a painted face grandfather clock, many great carved pieces, as well as mother of pearl inlaid pieces. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without beautiful wildlife pieces, including the fantastic birds that inhabit Cape May. There is artwork by the famous local artist James Fiorentino including a heron, a snowy owl, and more. There are also beautiful Boehm pieces that come alive as you look at them.

The sale will take place on Thursday, October 24th, beginning at 9 am at the Convention Hall located at 714 Beach Ave, Cape May, NJ. For tickets for the appraisal, please call (609) 884-9565, or individuals can go to the Convention Hall and purchase tickets.
