West Cork Auctions
West Cork Auctions was born out of several lockdowns during the last 16 months.
My name is Eddie Pyburn I have been collecting antiques and collectibles for most of my life .
In March 2018 I opened a little shop called the Vintage Room upstairs over Barnett`s drapery shop in Schull,
In December 2019 I decided to take the leap and began purchasing a ground floor shop unit on the
main street of Schull . I received the keys in March 2020 and two days later the entire country was locked down.
Having spent the last year swimming against the tide, it has made every business look for different ways to survive and one day while talking to a friend I joked about setting up an auction business.
And that is exactly why you are now reading this.
I love the unusual, quirky , mad , industrial , conversation starting interior design collectibles and the story behind the object is particularly important to me.
I will only be bringing to Auction items that are owned by the Vintage Room, and I hope to be able to source enough unusual pieces as well some quality mainstream antiques and collectibles.
We are a small family run business operating out of one of the most beautiful fishing/tourist/sailing
seaside villages in the world (certainly worth a visit)
I would like to invite you to come on the Journey with me and I look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones on the ship that is West Cork Auctions!
