FAIRFAX, Va., May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online auction house FBA Auctions – www.fbaauctions.com – has officially opened registration for its next auction, to be held May 8, 2011 starting at 11 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Customers must complete a free pre-registration to view items and participate in the auction. Preview is now open to the public.
FBA has won the exclusive right to bring to auction a prominent estate from McLean, VA. The estate includes fine jewelry, watches, and artwork. Some of the marquis pieces include a men's Patek Philippe watch, etchings by Albrecht Durer & James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and numerous pieces of fine sterling silver. The auction will also comprise hundreds of additional items of interest including jewelry, loose stones, art, coins, collectibles, musical instruments, rugs, fine silver, and much more.
"We're thrilled to be able to bring this remarkable collection to our customers," stated Carl Johnson, General Manager of Acquisitions and Business Development. "The McLean estate collection includes some very rare and desirable items, and the FBA auction will be the only way to access them."
The upcoming May 8 auction comes on the heels of some significant changes for FBA. Previously known as Foreclosure and Bankruptcy Auctions, the firm has modified its name to FBA Auctions working with MarCom Group of Fairfax, VA to develop a new logo and revamped website.
"The change of name to FBA and the redesign of our website are both meant to make things simpler for our customers," notes Pamela Swartley-Ko, General Manager of Operations and Client Services. "But we didn't stop there. We've also doubled the size of our staff and brought in additional resources to ensure that not only are the items we auction top of the line, our customer service is as well."
"We've been bringing elite quality merchandise to our customers for over 20 years, and these changes will ensure that our auctions continue to get bigger and better," adds Johnson.
