Preston Evans has A Colossal Four-Day Auction Event Planned for September 4th-7th in Byron, Georgia

eTradeWire News/10579585
Byron, GA -- Preston Evans of Preston Opportunities is very good at many things ā€“ like collecting and being an auctioneer ā€“ but he's terrible at retiring. "I tried to retire," he said from his home in South Georgia, "and it worked until I was motivated to get back in the auction ring. I found it impossible to sell all my collections in the time I spent trying to put together an event."

That was four years ago. Since then, at least five important collections have fallen into Evans's lap (including the estate of his longtime friend and fellow collector, Buddy Austin, recently deceased). Those items, plus Evan's leftover inventory never before offered for sale, all add up to one thing: a major auction for all of it, planned for four days, the weekend of Sept. 4th thru 7th.

The auction will be held at the Big Peach Antiques Mall in Byron, Georgia, 12 miles south of Macon, off exit 149 of I-75, at 119 Peachtree Parkway. Start times all four days will be 10 am Eastern. Seating will be available in the lower room of the mall. The expected overflow crowd will be accommodated outdoors. Limited online bidding will be through
