"I spent a couple of hours online with your auction on Saturday. The material was first class. I have been to many online stamp auctions over the last two years and would like you to know that I think yours is the best I have been to so far. So keep up the good work" Mr R, UK. 13th April 2022.

Cheshire Stamp Auctions hold sales regularly throughout the year, streamed online across several Internet platforms including this website for bidders around the world plus our loyal band of bidders who attend the auction itself at our rooms in Knutsford, UK. It's an exciting event for buyers & sellers alike! 


A buyer's premium of 22% which is inclusive of tax in lieu of VAT is added to the hammer price of each lot.

You can watch, listen and bid on three different online platforms available on www.sandafayre.com (fee 3.6% on the hammer price), www.the-saleroom.com (fee 5.94% on the hammer price), and www.easyliveauction.com (charges apply). Please note that the 3.6% fee is what we are charged by the IT provider and we receive no income from the fee. The www.sandafayre.com site will take commission bids up to 08:00am on the morning of the sale (UK time). Approximately 30 minutes before the auction (10.30 GMT), a live bidding platform becomes available when you click on a live auction link - you need to have registered an account with us on our website and be logged in to that account to use this live platform. 
Please note that if you register for this auction on www.the-saleroom.com, but instead bid on the www.sandafayre.com live platform, you will be charged the higher saleroom.com fee of 5.94%!


If you place bids on lots on our website or send them to us by any other method before the start of the auction then our auctioneer will act on your behalf without charge, even if you decide to watch online later. We will do our best to ensure that you win, as there is nothing worse than your favourite lot being sold to someone else at your top bid! In the case of an auctioneers 'book' bid being matched by an Internet bid then the auctioneer will try his best to give his 'commission' client precedence!

Bids may be submitted by any of the following methods:
  • Absentee (“Commission”) bids may be submitted by phone, email, fax, via Stamp Auction Network and www.sandafayre.com until 08:00 AM GMT on the morning of the auction.
  • Participate in the auction live online via sandafayre.com, the-saleroom.com or easyliveauction.com. To use this service on sandafayre.com simply register and create an account on our website before 08:00 AM GMT on the morning of the auction - the live bidding facility becomes active around 30 minutes before the auction begins. The auction begins at 11.00 AM GMT.
We can ship all lots and we combine multiple purchases to save on your costs, however we do have the individual shipping charges shown against every lot on www.sandafayre.com to whichever country you reside in.
