Our Story

Second Story

ˈsekənd/ ˈstôrē/ – (noun)
  1. A part of your home where you store extra things.
  2. What happens to already-loved goods when they find new owners.

Second Story Auctions is a community-focused, online auction company, Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. We sell furniture, art, jewelry, collectibles, antiques and more.

Our favorite part of the job? Hearing the stories behind the things you’re selling and finding out what buyers plan to do with their new treasures.

Whether it is an estate auction, downsizing or lifestyle changes, decluttering and reorganizing, or raising money for the causes you love, the caring and knowledgeable people at Second Story Auctions are ready to step you through the entire process.

We love helping already loved goods find a second story, but we believe people are one of the most important parts of any auction.

Why We Do It

We do it for the stories-The nastalgia from our consigners. The thrill and excitement of our bidders. The positive impact and effect on the lives our community partners are able to then touch.

At Second Story Auctions, our team lives for helping sellers sort through the treasures and memories in a loved one’s home. Or watching a young family discover the perfect dining room table to eat dinner around.

Why? Since the 1930's Sibcy Cline, a locally owned and operated, family company, has been an integral part of the local landscape and one of the most respected real estate companies. That's a lot of years and a lot of both empathy and insight into one's holistic need in terms of all things home related.

We want to create a service-oriented, auction company that both helps and honors people and their stories, as well as the stuff being sold.

It’s about taking the stress out of major life stages—whether that’s downsizing, relocating, de-cluttering or selling a loved one’s estate. And helping people furnish a first home, upgrade their style or add to a collection. Every auction item arrives with one story and leaves to begin a second one.

About our Partners

Second Story Auctions proudly partners with Sibcy Cline Realtors, the largest real estate firm in Greater Cincinnati. In fact, the mother-daughter team of Pam Sibcy and Robin Sheakley played a crucial role in bringing our company to life.

The pair launched Sibcy Cline Home Services in 1996 to help buyers and sellers with maintenance, upkeep and style needs, but more recently Pam and Robin had been toying with the idea of adding another service. People often asked them for assistance and referrals for removing or selling household items.

In 2013, Second Story Auction came to fruition as the perfect combination of business, real estate, technology and invigorating, auction experience.

When Pam isn’t busy with Sibcy Cline, she’s actively involved in the community, serving on many boards and volunteering her time to worthwhile organizations. She also spends time with her husband, Rob, three children, five grandchildren and her dog, Augie.

Robin shares her mom’s passion for Sibcy Cline and community involvement. When she’s not working, you’ll find her hanging out with her husband Matt and their two children.
