Make your objects visible for everyone

An affiliation with Barnebys will connect your auction house or gallery with a diverse group of buyers around the world. Since a large proportion of our users are new to the art and collectables market, many haven't heard of your auction house or gallery. That is until now.

The art market has been revolutionised in recent years, transforming from a exclusive market into a digital playground accessible to everyone. As the range of objects on the market has grown, so has the number of buyers, and Barnebys offers an unrivalled opportunity to present your objects to a wide and expanding audience.

Our users are well acquainted with e-commerce and are dedicated shoppers, so we can promise to boost your online presence. In addition to our search service, our daily email alerts let our members know if one of your objects matches their interests.

We only direct traffic to affiliated auction houses, dealers, and galleries. After we have directed buyers to them, we don’t interfere with the sales process, allowing the houses and galleries to attend to their own customers and do what they do best.

What our customers are saying about us

I was really pleased with the results and from conversations with clients I know that listing the auction with you brought me new clients who went on to bid and buy in the auction so it was very worth while.

Barnebys offers good coverage and is thus a good marketing tool for us in Scandinavia. We don't spend as much on advertising in newspapers now. We're reaching new customer groups through Barnebys.
