Casco Bay Auctions, LLC was founded in 2019 to provide auction services to clients in the communities of Southern and Midcoast Maine. Located in Freeport, we travel throughout the region collecting consignments for our auctions. We hold live auctions at our Freeport gallery, as well as periodic online only auctions. All of our sales are also simulcast online, allowing us to reach an
international audience and increase hammer prices.
As a company, we pride ourselves on dealing with clients in an honest, straight forward manner, and with complete confidentiality. Our goal is to make the consignment process simple and transparent, and to provide buyers with an exceptional level of service. To buyers, we provide personalized service, accurate descriptions, and affordable shipping options.
Auctioneer & Owner Andrew Davis
Born and raised in Central Maine, Andrew got his start in the auction business in 2005, when, as a college student, he got a gig as a freelance photographer with Northeast Auctions in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This led to a nearly 15 year career with one of the largest East Coast auction companies. Working with legendary auctioneer and Antiques Roadshow appraiser Ron Bourgeault, Andrew handled a huge variety of incredible pieces, and learned a great deal on all aspects of the auction business.
In 2019, Ron Bourgeault made the decision to retire, leaving Andrew without a job, but with a great opportunity to fill the space left by the recent closures of several auction houses in the area. With a lot of hard work, and with a lot of support from friends, family and patrons, Casco Bay Auctions held their first sale in September of 2019.

170 Main Street Expansion
We recently purchased this 1814 church just up the street from our 147 Main Street gallery. The second level is currently home to auctioneer Andrew Davis and his family, and the first floor will be additional storage space, and home to our online only auctions.
Originally built as a dormitory for North Yarmouth Academy in 1814, the building was purchased by the Second Universalist Society of Freeport in 1881, and moved to its current location. The steeples, stained glass and an addition to the back were all added between 1881 and 1887. The church operated until 1971, and in 1973, the building was sold to an individual who operated it as a sail loft for a number of years. In 1983, the building was sold again, to a dentist and his wife. He located his offices in the first floor, and converted the second floor to an apartment. We purchased the building from his wife in 2021, and are thrilled to carry on the legacy of this grand piece of Freeport’s history.
