Brian Lebel's Old West Show & Auction to Acquire the High Noon Show & Auction


March 20, 2014 – Los Angeles-based High Noon Western Americana, and Brian Lebel's Old West Show & Auction, proudly announce their new business endeavor. Brian and Melissa Lebel will acquire the annual High Noon Show & Auction, held every January in Mesa, AZ, while continuing to operate their annual June event, currently held in Denver, CO.

Linda Kohn Sherwood and Joseph Sherwood, as High Noon Western Americana, though spinning off their event business, will continue their active roll with acquisitions, private sales & appraisals. With the addition of the Mesa event to its lineup, Lebel's Old West solidifies its position as the leader in the western arts and collectibles market. The Sherwoods and Lebels remain personally committed to the future of the American western antiquities business.

Both parties agree that the spirit of cooperation and teamwork that has always existed between the two entities will continue well into the future. “We feel that this is the best way to ensure that both events continue to be the finest, strongest, most reputable events in our business,” says Old West founder, Brian Lebel. “It’s a natural evolution.”

Linda Kohn Sherwood agrees. “Both of our companies are known for their excellent reputations and high standards. We are thrilled to be able to continue to deliver honesty, integrity, quality and continuity to all of our clients, in every capacity.”
