LIVE VINTAGE AND COLLECTIBLES AUCTIONS

Back to the Past Collectibles is Detroit’s premier auction house for vintage and pop culture memorabilia of all kinds!

We offer treasures from both our own warehouse and other consignors from across the US.

Main event auctions are held in our physical showroom at our Wixom, Michigan HQ (directions) and are also accessible online via Proxibid.com. Most auction events have a 1-hour inspection and registration window, so you can take your time looking over the lots.

Buy Collectibles Online Via Live Auction

If you prefer not to use Proxibid, we may accept absentee bidding via phone-in and email, by prior arrangement. For select high-value lots, phone bidding can be done live during the auction by appointment, but we do not suggest it for most situations. Contact us if you need more information about how we do live auctions!

Safe & Affordable Collectibles Shipping

If you’re not local to our Wixom, Michigan showroom, our veteran shipping team uses both Fedex and US Postal Service to find the best balance between cost and safely getting your items to your doorstep. There are NO hidden per-lot fees or any shenanigans with shipping costs and we’ll always be very transparent about the price of getting items from us to you.

All packages are tracked and insured, so you can have full confidence that you’ll receive what you expected, when you bid with Back to the Past!
