Carpenter’s Classics LLC is a family-owned auction service and consignment business.
Rusty Carpenter, owner, said the business opened a year ago. However, he has bought and sold antiques and collectibles for over 15 years.
Their warehouse is located in Kearney, Missouri, and his auctions are held at the Platte City Fairgrounds. The auctions are done in-person and online.
He said they specialize in old advertising, antique toys, farm liquidation and pre-1970 collectibles.
In addition, he has begun to expand to a classic car and classic tractor collection.
“We do many auctions for old advertising such as porcelain signs, old gas pumps, old soda signs and country store items,” Carpenter said.
He offers both auction services and consignment item sales. He travels and searches for items from across the country.
Carpenter’s Classics LLC will be hosting a swap meet and auction this month. They will have a swap meet from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16 and from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17. The auction will start at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.
Both days will be at the Platte City Fairgrounds. The two-day event will have antique advertisements for products such as soda, oil and beer.
