Synagogue Announces Annual Antiques, Art and Collectibles Auction

The historic Hebrew Congregation of St. Thomas will hold its 12th annual Antiques, Art and Collectibles Auction at noon on Sunday, Feb. 13, at Antilles School’s MCM Center.

Doors will open at 10 a.m. for a preview of live and silent auction items. "Flea market" sale tables will open at 10 a.m. Silent auction bidding starts at 11 a.m., with tables closing every 45 minutes starting at 1 p.m. The live auction will start at noon.

This year’s live auction will feature about 35 items, with antique West Indian furniture taking center stage along with great getaways (Napa Valley, Breckenridge, Colorado, Asheville, NYC, Maine, etc.) and fun-filled packages (salsa and mojito party, couples massage, cooking class, dinners, wine). The silent auction will have more than 150 collectibles, getaways, gift certificates for food and services, art and — for the first time — furniture.

Bruce Wilson of St. Croix will be the auctioneer again. Food from Chef Damaris Catering will be available, along with cookies baked by Iris Horwitz. Shipping to the mainland or other islands can be arranged. Proxy bidding is available for anyone unable to attend all or part of the auction.
Photos and descriptions of items in the live and silent auctions can be viewed at synagogue.typepad.com. For information on proxy bidding or auction items, call 774-4312 or e-mail info@synagogue.vi. Donations are still being accepted.

Proceeds from the auction help maintain the 178-year-old synagogue building, a National Historic Monument, and keep it open to some 10,000 visitors each year.
