The ACO Port Hope Antiques and Artifacts Auction and Tag Sale is an annual charitable fundraising event held in Port Hope, Ontario. Money from the event is used by ACO Port Hope to help fund heritage restoration projects within the Municipality of Port Hope.

We hope this difficult time finds you all well and safe!

Our committee continues to work on its fundraising goals and we are busy planning online auction sales and a fresh live auction and sale event for 2021.

We hope to have firm dates set for all of these soon. Please keep checking back to this page for updates.

In the meantime, please note that we will be happy to accept donations of items for upcoming sales that meet our guidelines for donation.

Donation Guidelines

We appreciate all offers, however at this time, due to space and other limitations, we need to be very selective in what we can take for donation to our fundraising efforts. As always, any donations we do accept will receive a tax receipt after the item’s sold for the full appraised value.

We would be pleased to consider:

  • Artwork – signed, original pieces, by listed or noted artists, with/without provenance, including paintings, prints, sculpture etc.
  • Artwork – original, funky, mid-century, or other notable pieces that do not fall into the category above but are of artistic, cultural, historical or particular decorative interest.
  • Furniture – modern, vintage, mid-century, quality designer, or high-end antique that is not mass produced and is in good condition. Smaller pieces are preferred but larger pieces of significant interest may be considered.
  • Artisanal work – pottery, glass, signed or unsigned but not mass produced.
  • Artisanal work – ethnic work, signed or unsigned, or of particular design or historical interest.
  • Textiles – hand done, or of particular design or historical interest.
  • Carpets – not mass produced, antique or newer, but of design interest.
