WebWilson.com auctions are presented on AntiquesYes.com, a vetted online auction site designed by professional antiques dealers. AntiquesYes.com software features no hidden reserves, anonymous bidders, and a tracking screen for every bidder.
When the Internet became accessible WebWilson.com was among the first to produce online auctions using their own web site and bidding software. Last year they worked with a group of professional antiques dealers to launch AntiquesYes.com, a vetted on line auction site with many custom features such as anonymous bidders and an extended bidding option. The WebWilson.com website also includes a virtual museum and library and is considered the premiere Internet destination for all those seeking to learn about and to purchase antique builders’ hardware.
