5 Stars, without hesitationShipping was prompt and packaging was done with obvious care. I had an issue with one item within the Lot I won and Brian, in customer service, took care of it promptly and professionally. I will definitely be looking to participate in future Potter & Potter auctions and can't recommend them highly enough. Simply professional, all the way!

Excellent Service from Potter & PotterI was pleased to find a vintage poster I had been looking for at Potter & Potter. To feel comfortable making my bid, I needed more detailed information and images than had been originally posted. I sent an email requesting the additional info and received a reply very quickly. Having been the successful bidder, I contacted Potter & Potter by phone to settle my account and make arrangements for shipping. They were incredibly responsive to my requests and were provided excellent follow-up.
