      Edlins Auction 223

      Yass Soldiers Club, 86 Meehan Street, Yass, NSW 2582

      Edlins of Canberra Auctions

      New Yass Auction Rooms to Host Auction 223

      Exciting news for Edlins customers is that Edlins Auctions will now be run from our Yass shop/office premises from 2020. The reasons are many and varied. Although the lack of parking and difficulty accessing the Canberra Auction rooms has been the deciding factor. The Canberra store will still be open for normal trading. Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm and Saturdays from 9.00 to 1.00pm. Vendors may still also submit their Auction lots through the Canberra store if that is their preference. We would encourage clients with large holdings to attend our Yass store as the logistics of parking and unloading are much easier with free two hour parking literally 3 metres from the door of the Yass store.

      The online version of the Auction catalogue will be posted to the internet by the 1st February 2020. Enquiries to edlins@nulltpg.com.au.
