About Carter Auctions Ltd

Carter Auctions Ltd began due to the belief that there was a gap in the market within Northampton to find unique, desirable items at affordable prices.  

We are proud to be a small, very customer aware auction house selling more individual, good quality items, in house and online. With a welcoming, modern atmosphere, the auction house is ideally situated in the centre of Northampton with disabled access, free parking and loading bays close by.

Owner Claire Carter, created Carter Auctions Ltd, as her true passion is buying vintage, retro, quirky items and seeing other people enjoy them as much as she did.

Our established team have many years of experience buying and selling within online shops and auction houses and have strong ties to Spain, meaning you will often find niche Spanish items in the collections. 

For more information on Carter Auctions Ltd please feel free to contact our friendly team, we look forward to hearing from you.
