Hindman is always reliable
Between Santa Fe Art Auction, Hindman, Heritage, Bonham and Moran, I have built a large part of my collection. There are other fine auction houses, but for top of the line vintage Navajos, these people know their art.

In House Shipping for Jewelry
They were incredibly accomodating with my jewelry purchase. Other auction houses require you to make your own arrangements on shipping, even when it is for a small piece of high-end jewelry. Hindman's took care of the shipping for me, at a very reasonble cost. Made the transaction much more comfortable.
