Ledbetter Folk Art Auction

Ledbetter Folk Art Auction

Matt Ledbetter started his Auction Career when he was 5 years old. Buying Pottery out of basements with his father, a Legendary door knock picker. Matt attained a North Carolina Auctioneer License in 2006 but held off opening an auction house until January of 2020. Instead, he opened a folk art gallery where a quarterly event is held that focuses on offering premium folk art collections at auction. We work for our sellers in that we travel and pick up consignments, bring them to the gallery and display, advertise, and work hard to get these items into the hands of end users. For the buyer we strive to always have authentic material only taking in quality items with pure provenance. I am always accessible through phone or text at 336.524.1077 - Matt Ledbetter *** Note About Shipping *** I AM AN AUCTIONEER NOT A SHIPPING COMPANY. HOWEVER.... to combat the high prices charged by 3rd party shippers and to keep our customers happy we DO OFFER IN HOUSE SHIPPING. DO NOT GET LOUD with us on shipping times. After each auction we have the job of packing and shipping over 450 fragile items. WE PACK ON AVERAGE 80 to 100 boxes a week. DO THE MATH and you will see that it takes 5 - 6 weeks to complete an auctions worth of shipping. Once an invoice is paid we will pack it up and fedex label and you will recieve a shipping invoice. THIS INVOICE WILL HAVE A FEDEX TRACKING NUMBER ON IT. After you pay that invoice your package will be taken to the Fedex Drop Off. Shipping Steps 1) pay your live auctioneers invoice. 2) after your invoice registers paid, we will stamp it and send to the packing room where its boxed and fedexed labled. 3) you will be emailed a shipping invoice, once that is paid it will be taken to fedex drop off ****** WE ONLY PACK ITEMS 33" or less that don't weigh a lot. if you have furniture or large paintings/items they need to be picked up *** PICKUP TIMES ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY mon - thur 9:30 to 3 anyone picking up that isn't listed on the LiveAuctioneers invoice must provide a printed paid invoice. If you send someone to pick up and they don't have printed paperwork your items will not be released.

If you want the best outsider/folk art with the best service, go to Matt Ledbetter.
The art Matt Ledbetter finds and sells is both the famous and the local artists he discovers. He has an exceptional eye for uniqueness and internal quality. His service is unmatched. Prices are still reasonable, but don't delay.

Best Folk Auction House on the net!
I'm a frequent buyer and seller with this house and I can't say enough good things about the experience. Family owned and operated, it's by far the best in the business. Keep up the good work!

Helpful & Kind + Beautiful Items
I won a large lot of antique tiles from an auction in January, which I needed to have shipped to me. Local shippers were totally unhelpful, but Ledbetter stepped in to pack and ship my items for me. It did take some time, and a a bit of follow up, but the items arrived in perfect condition. They were packed extremely well, and we are so happy with them.
