Dear African Art lovers,
In a Hurry ? https://www.catawiki.com/u/365835-nordend
I hope you are all doing all well and adapting in a new world where social distance is the new normal .. Since May 11 my shop in Antwerp reopened, allowing two people maximum at a time, but since a lot of people don’t travel anymore business is slow, and only one or two people enter my shop every few days. This summer I will not be open all the time and only two people can visit at one time. . So if you want to visit me please check in advance if I am here.
It’s unexpected but I just started a new online auction today that is ending Sunday June 28, 2020 around 8 p.m. Belgian time. Remember: When you bid on Catawiki there is only 9 % on the hammer price, and if you can’t attend the end of the auction the auto-bid function is your best friend. .
The packing and shipping cost is 25€ for Europe, and 50€ outside.
