Mercy Grove Church Building




No stranger to multi-day monster auctions, Preston Opportunities is having a doozie on Labor Day weekend – Saturday and Sunday, September 3rd and 4th – at the former Mercy Grove Church building at 8964 Thomaston Road in Macon, at 9:30 am Eastern both days. Online bidding will be on Saturday thru LiveAuctioneers.com. Live bidding only on Sunday. Headlining the event will be items gathered over the course of four decades – mostly rare and highly desirable jukeboxes, speakers, arcade games, slot machines and trade stimulators – from a collector who was a longtime friend of Preston Evans, the owner of Preston Opportunities. Per an agreement between the two made 30 years ago, Mr. Evans was able to acquire the collection. Now, all of it will come up for bid over the two days. “A collection of this caliber could have only originated from an avid collector,” Mr. Evans said. “The owner acquired these fine pieces, one by one, resulting in one of the most superb collections in the country. These beautiful and elegant machines speak for themselves. This sale, over 600 lots, is truly a connoisseur’s dream.” There will be a preview Friday, September 2, from 4-6 pm, Eastern time, at the former Mercy Grove Church building in Macon. Doors will open at 8:00 am on Saturday and Sunday for preview and registration. Both auctions will begin at 9:30 am. All times quoted are Eastern. The non-refundable purchase for registration and admission to this auction is $25 and includes a color brochure. A $50 option includes registration and a seat available on a first-come, first-served basis; the price will be applied toward a winning bid. A $100 per person option includes a brochure and a reserved seat for up to two people per bidder number (non-transferable); the price will also be applied to a winning bid. Seating is limited; folks are encouraged to reserve a seat. All attendees must register for this auction. People can register through the Preston Opportunities website: www.prestonopportunities.com.
