Collecting is a difficult passion to fulfill and there always comes a time when it appears essential to reorganize one’s collection. It can be frustrating to witness space being filled up by pieces without feeling like we’ve finally achieved the desired collection. It’s with the mandate to assist you facing this annoying situation that we organized the first edition of The Resale in 2000. We are now in our 8th edition of this project, which we repeat every two years. We know that for many of you, this is a stable event in your calendar.

The Resale allows to energize the secondary market by offer a unique platform of exchange. This year, we decided to modernize our project and have the pleasure to announce that we will be launching a web platform that will make this project accessible 365 days a year, allowing us to help you shape a collection that will meet your expectations. The website will be launched during the next exhibition of The Resale in January 2017. We hope to make a site worthy of your regular visit.
