Auction houses - not super expensive ones?!?

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know of any auction houses in the copenhagen area that sell affordable stuff? The only ones I can find are the super expensive international fine antique ones. A

In the UK they are called house clearances or in North America they are called estate sales ( sadly refers to selling possessions when someone dies).

There are less options nowadays than before. House clearances are still popular in Sweden, but not in Denmark. Expensive auctions, web auctions, antiques/second hand shops and flea markets dominate the market.

Auction houses include Bruun Rasmussen (expenive), http://kbhauktioner.dk/ in albertslund, http://www.auktionshuset.com/

Website auctions include www.lauritz.com

Antiques shops: scattered throughout town, but a good many in Ravnsborggade

Flea markets (loppemarked, kræmmermarked) are advertised on www.markedskalenderen.dk, but it also comprises a lot of very modest garage sales. In Copenhagen, most of them take place on Saturdays - major ones include the one behind Frederiksberg Rådhus, one at Kongens Nytorv, one next Thorvaldsens Museum, one at Halmtorvet, a modest & plain one along Assistens Kirkegård, a couple of them in the Carlsberg Byen.
