Bunch Auctions is asking all clients to utilize remote bidding options for the June 30th Fine Art Auction. Bidding is available by absentee, by phone, or online with BunchLive, Live Auctioneers, Invaluable, and AuctionZip. While the live sale will continue as planned, out of an abundance of caution for our clients, we will not be hosting in-person bidding in our Chadds Ford salesroom.

Additionally, all preview activity will only take place through our online illustrated catalogs. We will not be open for in-person previews of sales until further notice. We ask for your patience and cooperation during these unusual and trying times.
