WICHITA — A new auction house debuts in Wichita Saturday.
“Tomorrow’s the big day,” says Josh Ricketts.
“We just wanted to raise the bar a little bit and have an auction house that has more antiques … more unique and odd things where you can come in and enjoy a fun environment,” Ricketts says.
PB&J, which his 8-year-old daughter, Reagan, helped name after peanut butter and jelly, will sell new and antique furniture, early 20th-century memorabilia, medical memorabilia and antique advertising.
The company also will handle major estate sales and offer certified appraisal services.
Ricketts says PB&J also will offer consultation on antique pieces for free.
Auction previews will be every Saturday at 10 a.m. Auctions will follow from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Challacomb has Dick’s Junque & Treasures at 53rd and Seneca.
Ricketts says he wants people to know PB&J is a safe and reliable auction house.
“We’re going to make sure you understand what you’re getting when you walk out the door,” he says.
The important thing, he says, is that people come in and “know it’s a friendly place.”
