Manion’s December Auctions

Manion’s International Auction House has packed this December with seven special auctions of interest. WWII military artifacts, historic aviation related material, and military caps from around the world are featured, as well as two special auctions where the bidder commission has been drastically lowered or eliminated all together.

“2008 has been a great year for our online auction business,” said Manion’s CEO Jody Tucker. “2009 is shaping up to be even better, and we need to make room for new consignment.”
