Located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, USA, Green Valley is only two hours from Washington D. C. and Richmond, Virginia. The facility features three smoke-free galleries with security cameras, a separate lobby housing computerized registration check out, loading docks and acres of lighted parking. The facility is handicapped accessible.BRBR bNON-AUCTION OFFICE HOURS:bBR Our offices are open Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. eastern time (excluding major holidays). Questions on upcoming sales can be addressed via e-mail to infogreenvalleyauctions.com or via telephone at (540) 434-4260.BRBR bHISTORY:bBR Green Valley Auctions, Inc. was founded in 1967 by Leighton and Kathryn Evans. The first auctions were held in the converted bank barn on the 100-acre family farm. The children (Jeff, Michael, Greg and Michele) grew up working with their parents in the family business. Jeff and wife Beverley inherited the business in 1979. In 1985, Greg joined full time and the business was expanded with a new 8,000 square foot gallery. This began an era of tremendous growth that has resulted in several expansions of facilities and staff. In 1997, in celebration of 30 years of success based on a foundation of integrity and trust, Green Valley Auctions, Inc. opened the doors to its new 20,000 square foot, multi-gallery complex. With the development of multiple auction divisions, Green Valley has become nationally recognized for its expert services and impeccable honesty; prepared to meet every auction need, from important recognized collections to complete turnkey estate dispersals.BRBR Green Valley Auctions conducts general estate auctions as well as cataloged sales. The more than 25 auctions conducted annually include several cataloged sales of Glass and Lighting and Antiques, Americana and Decorative Arts, and the occasional, one-owner auction of a specialized collection.BRBR Under Jeff's qualified direction, Green Valley Auctions' Catalog Department is now firmly established as the leading, nationally recognized auction house for early American glass and lighting, as well as Virginia furniture and decorative arts. The published full-color catalogs for which Green Valley Auctions has become widely known, are prized reference materials, valued by serious dealers and collectors alike. With beautiful photographs, exceptionally detailed descriptions and thorough condition reports, the catalogs are unsurpassed in the glass industry. Through these cataloged auctions, Green Valley has handled many important and landmark collections as well as material for many major glass museums including The Corning Museum of Glass. Green Valley's biannual Antiques and Americana cataloged auctions, normally held in June and November, are also well regarded by those in the antiques community; a status indelibly fixed in 2004 when a Johannes Spitler decorated wall cupboard sold for 962,500, a record price for a piece of paint decorated American furniture. The cupboard, which had descended directly from fraktur artist Jacob Strickler, is considered one of the most important American Folk Art discoveries in the last 30 years. BRBR In an October 2004 article for USA Today, Terry Kovel, co-author with her husband, Ralph, of more than 85 books, including Kovels' Antiques Collectibles Price List, included Green Valley as one of her 10 fascinating spots to find a treasure or two.BRBR Now that 2007 has marked the 40th anniversary of Green Valley Auctions' humble beginning, plans are underway to expand once again and position the company for continued success and growth. Serious planning has been initiated for additional facility expansion, with commencement of renovations scheduled for mid-2008. Also, starting in 2007, Green Valley's cataloged sales will be offered through eBay Live auctions, which will allow online bidders from across the globe to participate live during the auction via the Internet.
