PreviewPresale Exhibitions

Prior to the auction, items for auction will be available at a presale exhibition held twice every month. Items will be exhibited as they are being arranged. While transactions are possible for individuals who choose to attend only on auction days, inspecting items by hand prior to the auction can greatly aid the decision-making process. Auction participants can narrow down the items in accordance with interested and budget. We strongly recommend participation.
