Antique and Art Auction Co. LLC, was established as Barrington Antique and Auction Co. LLC in 2004. Before that we were known as Barrington Antiques and still earlier as Time Travelers Antiques in the 1980’s. We decided to start an auction company after many years in the Antique business. We found that the auction format better fit our concept of buying and selling items. We enjoy history and research and have great respect for that aspect of the antique business. We also noticed a trend of high prices realized at auction and were happy to see our inventory moving.
