Schmidt’s Antique and Fine Art Auctions

For over 100 years Schmidt’s has been instrumental in uniting buyers and sellers of Art and Antiques through the process known as Auctions. We strive to make the entire process simple, honest and productive for both parties. For individual sellers and estates we can provide appraisal, pick-up, inventory, photography, research, cataloging, advertising and sale of one item or an entire collection. Our consignor payments are always on time, as promised, without excuses. Advertising is targeted to specific audiences through traditional print media and various online vehicles, we have also developed extensive mailing lists and an active Facebook page to provide up to date information to collectors and potential buyers worldwide. Buyers can bid with the confidence afforded through our accurate descriptions and meticulous condition reports along with high resolution photography of any item we sell. We also assist in local and worldwide shipping arraignments of purchases and even drop off small items at the local UPS Store so buyers can avoid additional pick-up charges. Our facilities and systems have all been designed and purpose built in order to produce high level auctions for the sale of your Antiques and Fine Art Collections. Contact us yourself to find out what our 100-plus years of Auction experience can do to benefit you.

We offer frequent Cataloged Online Auctions at our Ypsilanti Gallery.  These are cataloged auctions and offer worldwide online bidding through and combined with simultaneous live in-house action.
