Great place to buy art in Michigan!
Schmidt's is one of only two good auction houses to buy art in Michigan. They are very friendly, helpful and cheerful, and they have great stuff. Very nice presentation inside their gallery as well!

The auction house is very accommodating.
We have been customers of Schmidt's for many years. This most recent experience was as good as always; in fact, they let us pick up our items when they were scheduled to be closed. I don't know many businesses that would do that. It helped out a lot, since we were in the area and would have had to drive back (2 hours each way) another time if we weren't able to arrange this.

Simply the best.
Schmidt's has been around for over a century, and they have remained the best by far. Other houses have gone corporate, or media, or both, but Schmidt's remains a family owned and operated business that outshines them all. Don't forget to stop in the art gallery. It's a gem.

Fabulous! Shipping is perfectly worked out, inexpensive.
So pleased with Shmidt’s! Have never experienced the send-us-a-prepaid-label for small items as a form of shipping and it’s brilliant and inexpensive which is the opposite of most auctions these days. Highly appreciative of the offer and it will certainly bring me back for more. The experience was positive in every way, great items, terrific help. Just a perfect experience.

Helpful and Responsive
We wanted extra photos of a lot, and they then posted them on the site. Once I won the item, they were very helpful in moving the shipment along quickly.
