Carlisle Auctions prepares for its second 2020 offering

Carlisle Auctions resumes 2020 auctions at Spring Carlisle, starting June 18

CARLISLE, PA – It’s been since February that the experts with Carlisle Auctions last presented an auction. Then, as part of Winter AutoFest in Lakeland, Florida, the auction team tallied nearly $4 million in sales; an all-time high. Carlisle Auctions will present its Spring Carlisle auction, starting June 18 at the Carlisle Expo Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. It all happens as part of Spring Carlisle (June 17-20) happening just blocks away at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds.

What’s the old phrase – better late than never? That could never be more true given the challenging and unprecedented times everyone has been navigating due to COVID-19. Nevertheless, the auction is a go, all be it about two months later than originally planned. Decades of classics are slated with hundreds of consignments committed. Available lots date to 1926, with late ‘90s and ‘00s era lots expected too. There’s even a Thursday (June 18) theme planned, that being an all-truck hour during the afternoon.
