Preston Evans has a colossal four-day auction event planned for September 4th-7th in Byron, Georgia
Preston Evans is very good at many things – like collecting and being an auctioneer – but he's terrible at retiring. "I tried to retire," he said from his home in Georgia. "It worked until I was motivated to get back in the auction ring."

That was four years ago. Since then, at least five important collections have fallen into Evans's lap (including the estate of his longtime friend and fellow collector, Buddy Austin, recently deceased). Those items, plus Evan's leftover inventory never before offered for sale, all add up to one thing: a major auction for all of it, planned for four days, the weekend of Sept. 4th thru 7th.
The auction will be held at the Big Peach Antiques Mall in Byron, Georgia, 12 miles south of Macon, off exit 149 of I-75, at 119 Peachtree Parkway. Start times all four days will be 10 am Eastern. Seating will be available in the lower room of the mall. The expected overflow crowd will be accommodated outdoors. Limited online bidding will be through LiveAuctioneers.com.
The auction is packed with antiques and collectibles in many categories. Offered will be toys, Western items, Popeye collectibles, advertising, movie posters, petroliana (gas station collectibles)
A brochure costing $20 shows many of the items described here and serves as a ticket to enter the auction display area, all four days. $50 per person includes a brochure and seat (if available). A $100 option includes a brochure and guaranteed indoor reserved seat. $50 and $100 options will apply toward a purchase. The purchase of a brochure is not required for outside attendance.
