Isle of Wight auction 'went incredibly well'

The organisers of a recent auction which was held on the Isle of Wight have stated that the event went "incredibly well".

Rhodes and Dickson's debut auction at the Brading Waxworks site saw a bidding war over three life-size Santas, which had previously been used for Christmas displays on the island.

Rex Gully, one of the auctioneers on the day, told the Isle of Wight County Press: "There was a very good attendance and it created a lot of interest. A lot of people were fighting over the Santa - there was no love lost."

One of the Father Christmases raised a total of £180, while another of the popular items at the sale was a Nativity scene which had been used as a decoration at the Brading Waxworks for many years went for £300.

Commenting on the news that Brading Waxworks was to be closed, local news outlet VentnorBlog stated that it was a great shame.
