Due to Covid-19 we will not be conducting Public Auctions for
the well being of our Bidding Public and out of respect to the
Vendors whos items we hold in stock, we have postponed Public
is every business, we will see how this event unfolds before we
resume our usual trade. I am considering other forms of selling
(namely a tender system) to perhaps move on some stock, but this
will depend on any new developments with the Government/Virus.
Any such decision will be posted ASAP.
& Foster Auctioneers Ltd
in 1996 by Peter Maidens & Todd Foster, both formerly of Lambie
& Poyzer Auctions a then well established auction house in
Napier, Maidens & Foster has since become a Limited Company
owned and operated solely by Todd Foster his wife and family.
After starting in a small retail building in Thackery Street,
Todd then moved the company in 2000 to the Tennyson St premises
where it operates from today.
This building was double the size of where
they had started and the business has over the years has grown
with it. The two Auction Rooms have enabled Maidens & Foster
to continue their Weekly Estate Auctions on Wednesdays and at
the same time gather entries for their regular Antique & Collectables
Auctions in the other room.
the Internet and many other variables have changed the face of
trading in antique & second hand goods, but Maidens &
Foster prides itself on retaining a traditional and user friendly
environment for customers to buy and/or sell goods.
Many different generations now choose to view & purchase items via the internet.
With the ability to email photos & information, plus promote products through
our website & social media, our buyer catchment is no longer restricted to just
the local market. Bidders even have the option now to place a bid through our website.
& Foster are proud to be members of the Auctioneers
Association of New Zealand.
