Changes Coming to Central Virginia Auction House

QCVA_LogoLetters_v2 Quinn & Farmer Auctions Moves to a New Location and Modifies Ownership.

Quinn & Farmer Auctions is relocating from its current location to a larger complex off of I-64 east of Charlottesville and closer to Richmond. The new address will be 8854 Three Notch Road, Troy, VA 22974. In conjunction with this move Ken Farmer will be focusing on appraisals and wealth management as Ken Farmer & Associates. Paul Quinn will assume full ownership and responsibility of the auction business. It will be rebranded as Quinn’s Auction Galleries Central Virginia; this location joins Paul’s existing Quinn’s Auction Galleries in Northern Virginia. “Ken and I are looking forward to working together in the future in a way that makes sense for both of us,” stated Paul.

Ken added, “This new arrangement really allows me to focus on my clients while working more closely with them without needing to worry about the day-to-day operations of an auction business. I am confident we will both be happy with the outcome.”

The current managing director, Skip Usry, will continue in this role and all of the current staff including Ken’s wife, Jane Farmer, will transition to the new location.

Monday, September 14th will be the final weekly Treasure Auction conducted at the current location in Charlottesville. A multi-estate Fine and Decorative Arts Auction will take place as a grand opening at the new location on Saturday, September 26th.

Ken Farmer & Associates is headed by celebrity appraiser Ken Farmer, a twenty-year veteran of PBS’ popular Antiques Roadshow. He will be providing public speaking, appraisals, art brokerage, and professional consultation to clients across the country. More information can be found at
