Our Story Let me introduce you. Herb was a country kid from the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. He remembers his first auction well. He bought a banjo for $3. The year was 1955.
By 1963, he had migrated to Greenwich Village via Newark, NJ ("forget about it"). He was 15 years old and always thinking. He persuaded a merchant on Orchard Street to sell him sharkskin suits for $11.25 wholesale. He sold them to his classmates back in New Jersey for $35.
By 1968, he was taking antiques from Pennsylvania to stores in the Village in his Volkswagen van. One thing led to another....and in 1989 Herb bought a property in Point Pleasant NJ. He opened Concepts 1 Auction House and had twice a month auctions until May, 2016.
Now that the property is sold, Herb is not quite ready for full retirement. He is available for on-site auctions and special events. As always, he will give special attention in selling your items. His reputation for honesty and caring is known throughout the auction and antique business.If you need us, call us!!!
