Kraft Auctions Anniversary Auction

Sunday, January 14, 2018

Each year Kraft Auction Service conducts our Anniversary Auction to celebrate the career of Colonel Conrad Kraft who started the business in 1976. This auction features high end antiques, collectibles, automobiles, weaponry and much more. Jonathan started the anniversary sale in 2006. The sale was a huge success, with Kraft Auctions selling it’s most expensive antique collectible at the time in a pair of white opalescent sandwich celery glass vases for $18K. In 2010, Jonathan moved the sale to January to capitalize on the post holiday lull in auctions and the sale got even bigger. He set his sites on conducting Northwest Indiana’s first antique auction that would exceed $1 million dollars in sales. In 2016, he achieved that goal. Over the years the sale has grown from a one day event to a three day sale with 7 rings in total and 4000+ lots. The auction attracts in person bidders from all over the country and online bidders from all over the world.
