About Col. Dorothy Schaffer Auction, Estate Sale, & Appraisal Service
Hi, I'm Dorothy Schaffer, I have been buying and selling antiques and personal property in the St. Louis area for the past 30 years. I have sold at antique shows, auctions, flea markets, and at estate tag sales. In 1998, after 14 years, I closed my antique store in Eureka, MO. I now devote my time to tag sales, appraisals, and auctions, including real estate auctions.
I have been tested and certified as an Appraiser by the Certified Appraisers Guild of America (C.A.G.A.). I have graduated from the Missouri Auction School*. I am a licensed auctioneer in the State of Missouri License # 50477, and I'm also a member of the National and Missouri Professional Auctioneers Associations.
Services I provide:
Certified or verbal appraisals
Auctions including: estate, antique consignment, charity, real estate, and business liquidations
Estate or moving (tag) sales
I also buy antiques and collectibles
Many people ask what the "Col." stands for in front of my name. During the Civil War period, and after, only Colonels in the army were authorized to hold auctions. This title of Colonel was continued long after the war by auctioneers and is a carryover yet today. Today the title is given to graduates upon graduating from auctioneering school.
*People from around the world attend the Missouri Auction School. It is the oldest and ranked as the best.
Based out of Saint Louis, MO
