Christie’s South Kensington has launched a unique and original way to do your Christmas shopping this year. Instead of getting into a bidding war for your desired treasure, you can buy items from the auction house at a fixed rate

For a select few weeks in November and December, visitors to Christie’s South Kensington will be able to skip the bidding process and buy a number of items at fixed prices with Christie’s Buy or Bid, which will see 42 lots handpicked by specialists available for purchase.

A range of items, from paintings and sculptures to jewellery, will be offered, and with such a large variety, Christie’s is fantastic place to find quirky and creative gifts this Christmas. Pieces that have especially caught our eyes are the Art Deco chromium plated coffee machine and the vintage 1962 pinball machine (take note F.C!).

Items can be purchased at the Old Brompton Road saleroom or online from today until 3rd December. If not purchased by 3rd December, the products will then be available to bid on at an auction on 9th December. 

Customers are encouraged to take visit the South Kensington showroom, and take a look around Christie’s eclectic collection while enjoying a cup of coffee and chat with the specialists behind the individually crafted items. Prices start at £1,040 and range up to £13,000.
