Almost six months to the day of the downtown fire that halted sales at the Clay Potter Auction House, the business reopened its doors.

The grand reopening auction took place Nov. 26.

“Saturday night I was in my happy place,” Potter, who owns the auction house with his wife Kim, said. “It was great and was much better than expected with a huge crowd.”

A “typical” Clay Potter auction contains antiques and collectibles as well as oddities and rarities.
