(Press Release)
NEW YORK – CIRCA Inc. has announced its acquisition of Hampton Estate Auctions. Hampton is a live online auction house operating for the past three years specializing in jewelry, watches, coins and silver. Prior to the acquisition, Hampton was owned and operated by Vadim Krivitsky & Associates, located in Lahaska, PA.

“The acquisition of Hampton will broaden the array of services CIRCA is able to offer to our global client base, giving our clients and customers another compelling reason to do business with CIRCA,” says Richard Tilles, president of CIRCA.

It is anticipated that Vadim Krivitsky will maintain his association with Hampton, working with CIRCA to further develop the auction business. Krivitsky says, “CIRCA’s global reach and multiple buying locations will provide new and exciting product to the Hampton auction site, giving Hampton’s customers a broader array of fine jewelry and luxury watch products to choose from, which will lead to significant growth opportunities for Hampton and CIRCA.”

“The addition of the Hampton auction site to CIRCA’s business portfolio is a strategic move that will better position CIRCA for revenue growth and improved profitability in the next few years,” says Laurence R. Grunstein, CIRCA CEO.

In addition to Hampton, CIRCA owns and operates PORTERO.com, a reseller of pre-owned luxury handbags, watches and jewelry. PORTERO was acquired by CIRCA in 2013.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
