A diving helment from the Tony and Yvonne Pardoe Collection, which will be auctioned
        in June 2016. We have exploited the Internet and social media to generate considerable
        interest in this niche collection some six months before it is due to be sold. Brian Goodison-Blanks reflects on how the Internet is changing the fundamental dynamics of the auction market.

Indeed, by embracing the new technologies, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are reaching many more buyers world-wide, often for items with very niche appeal.
