Barnebys is changing the auction world by bringing together potential buyers and auction houses online.
Auction fans have at their fingertips information from 500+ auction houses about their lots and catalogs. These potential buyers can easily find what they’re looking for and then link directly to the auction houses. The auction houses still own the deal, but Barnebys helps connect them with potential buyers – a win-win for all parties.
Buyers can search among finished auctions to see how much other pieces have sold for, and Barnebys also offers an online appraisal service. The first Barnebys website was released in Sweden in 2011, and now the company is now active in several other countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Spain.
