Archives for category: About Us

We here at Showtime Auction Services have had a very busy summer. We spent the months of June and July wrapping up the consignments for our Fall Auction and getting our Flyer out. Now it’s time to work on the Catalog. In designing the pages for this one, it is apparent to us that this is going to be the best selection of rare investment grade antiques we have ever offered. We will be featuring the Robert and Harriett Potter “Life Time” collection of Fire Apparatus and Equipment as well as Part 2 of the Ed and Christy Ramsey Pedal Car and Toy Collection. In addition, we will offer Part 5 of the best cigar and tobacco tin collection ever offered at auction.

Our flyers went out around July 20th. If you did not get one, call us at 734-676-9703 and we will get one off to you right away. The catalogs will be ready to mail out the first week of September. If you want one you can order it by calling Brodie at 817-312-4125. It will be 200+ pages of full color and you can get the prices realized 3 days after the auction online from our website at

We look forward to keeping in touch with you on a regular basis and hope to see you in Ann Arbor at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds on October 4, 5, 6 & 7, 2012.

Best Regards,

Mike Eckles

Lori and I are working hard to make our next auctions a memorable one! Did you know that we are a hands-on Auction Company. Lori and I pick up the merchandise, carefully clean it if necessary, photograph it, describe it, pack it for shipping to the auction site, unpack it and set it up for preview? As the auctioneer, I have handled the auction items at least 6 times before I get up on the stage to sell it. Therefore, unlike auctioneers that fly in the night before the auction, I know exactly what I am selling and can honestly reflect my knowledge of the items to the audience.

So mark your calendars now for our Fall, 2012 Auction, October 5, 6 & 7 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor, MI.  Our Flyer for our Fall Auction will be mailed out around August 5th and the catalogs will be ready to be mailed around September 5th.  You can make your reservations at the Weber’s Inn (our host hotel) by calling (734) 769-2500. Make your reservations early as there are a lot of events scheduled at the University of Michigan.
