Thanks for visiting Martin J. Donnelly Auctions

Since 1983, we have been committed to one simple purpose: “Helping People Find the Tools they Need”. What began as an exciting discovery of a world of long ago has remained that way as we have progressed from selling tools from the trunk of a car to sorting, documenting, photographing and marketing large collections of tools and related antiques from throughout the United States, Canada and the rest of the world.

Whether you are new to the World of collecting or an experienced veteran of the quest for the great treasures of antiquity, we welcome you to this site. Your questions and comments are always welcome and will be very much appreciated. Our policy from the beginning has been “Information is free and given freely”. We like this stuff and are delighted to hear from others similarly inclined, or just curious about something found in the barn, cellar or attic.

A special note to those who may find themselves in need of finding the best way to achieve the highest value for antiques that they have collected over the years or who have family items that they are considering selling: We are experienced professionals and we treat people as we would want to be treated. We have a long list of references of satisfied consignors who have sold things through our auctions that we would be happy to share with prospective sellers. We won’t take your two or three best things and leave you to deal with the rest. We won’t attempt to buy your antiques when we know we could get you considerably more by selling them for you through our auctions. We can help make the experience of selling things an interesting and enjoyable experience.

If you have antiques and collectibles you are considering selling, please give us a call at (800) 869-0695 so we can explain the process and begin to establish a personal relationship.

If you are a new or experienced collector, or someone looking for something to use, we invite you to join us at one of our auctions. It is simply the best way to have a great time, meet friendly people and spend a day or two having as much fun as a kid on a summer day.

Thanks again for visiting,
