Headquartered in Chicago, Hindman is home to 150 employees, with additional offices in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Milwaukee, Naples, Palm Beach, Scottsdale and St. Louis.

In 1982, Leslie Hindman founded Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago, Illinois, and within a few years it grew to be the largest auction house in the Midwest, and one of largest in the country. As a result of the firm's outstanding reputation, it was acquired by Sotheby's in 1997. When the opportunity presented itself, Leslie reopened Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in 2003 and continued her growth trajectory. Also part of the Hindman family of auction houses, Cowan's Auctions was opened in 1995 by Wes Cowan in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cowan's quickly earned a reputation for integrity, customer service and great results. In 2018, these two firms became the foundation for Hindman, a rapidly growing organization with the ambition to be the nation's most client-centric auction house.

New bidders
As a new bidder I found that 1) not knowing that bidding prior to "Live" bidding doesn't really matter, 2) that not all ITEMS will have shipping and that bidder must make said arrangements (if shipping isn't part of the price listed on the invoice). Just some newbie mistakes.
