Humler & Nolan is moving again. That is good news and bad news all rolled into one.
First, the bad news. We have been in Tower Place Mall for over two years and really enjoy the space and the foot traffic. Sadly, the City of Cincinnati has purchased the nearly empty mall and has plans that do not include any of the present tenants. No reflection on H&N, we were, for all intents and purposes, the Anchor Tenant here and well liked by all. It’s just progress and we wish the City good luck as the new owners.
Now for the good news. After a mildly frantic search for a new space, we contacted our friends at Cincinnati Art Galleries, Randy and Michele Sandler, and asked about our old location on the 4th floor of the Cincinnati Bar Association Building. Our old space has been vacant since we left 3 years ago. Randy put us in touch with John Norwine, Executive Director of CBA, and after some tense negotiating, a deal was struck.
So we are now going home to 225 East 6th Street where we conducted auctions from 1999 until moving to Rookwood in 2010. The facility has hardly changed so those who attended auctions there in the past will feel right at home as I am sure we will. Display will be on the 4th floor and the auction in the palatial 5th floor. Sweet.
We will still be Humler & Nolan and still have the same professional staff: Riley Humler, Jim Fleming, Karen Singleton, Mark Mussio and Jeff Engel and we will maintain the same high standards we have used in the past to make your experience with us a pleasant one.
We expect to move on or about February 1st and other than an increase in the use of Advil, expect business to be as usual.
With one exception. We have some inventory that we would rather sell than move. That includes some WWII posters, some production Rookwood, much of our Sports related materials, lots of past auction catalogs and some duplicate reference materials.
Posters and production Rookwood will be marked down, catalogs for any sale will be offered at $5 plus tax and reference materials will be priced to move.
Sale starts immediately so stop by for some deals.
Our new address:
Humler & Nolan
