James D. Julia Joins Poulin Auction Company

“The Tradition Continues”

Jim Julia will serve as advisor, consultant, & auctioneer for upcoming Poulin Auctions

Nick Poulin, head of well-known Poulin’s Firearms Company, recently announced a special collaboration with world renowned antiques dealer, James D. Julia. Nick explained, “In the mid-1960s, my grandfather; Jim’s father, Arthur Julia, together with his wife started a small antiques shop and eventually a successful auction house. In the 1970s, Jim bought the auction business from Arthur and grew it into a world-renowned company. My parents, Steve Poulin and Jeannine Poulin, also transitioned into auctioneers and we conducted auctions literally next door to Jim for many years. When Jim sold his company in 2017, it allowed the Poulin Company an extraordinary opportunity for growth. We knew Jim’s absence from the market gave us a tremendous opportunity to grow. Over these past few years, we have grown exponentially. Last year, based on annual sales, our company generated $20 million dollars in sales making us the second largest firearms auction house in the world but of equal importance, we established a number of new world records.

Jim can now re-enter the auction marketplace and met with me to discuss how we could work together. Now, with the continuation of the family name involved with the auction industry, I frequently say,

“The Tradition Continues”.

During Jim’s tenure in the antiques world, he has been involved in over $700 million dollars’ worth of sales in virtually every type of antiques you can think of. He has a panoramic knowledge of the antiques world and tremendous experience. Three-generations of marketing expertise and nearly $1 BILLION in combined total sales experience by the Poulin & Julia Family benefits both the buyers and sellers alike, ensuring the sellers get the maximum return for their goods and the buyers can trust the descriptions to be accurate and honest.

Jim and I have 2 goals:
1.) Help us to continue to grow our Firearms Division to take it from #2 to #1 in the world.
2.) Utilize Jim’s vast knowledge to help us build a new additional division dealing in all antiques.

POULIN’S

ANTIQUE DIVISION

Going forward we will have two divisions:

1.) Specializing in Firearms,
2.) Specializing in quality antiques.

Painting of ship “San Jacinto” by Antonio Jacobson. One of the largest ever created by this famous artist. Wanted all quality paintings and marine items 0% commission on expensive items

Jim Julia’s comments about the new association were, “I love the antiques and auction business and have been incredibly impressed with what Nick has done with Firearms. For years our firms conducted business in a similar form reflecting Arthur’s tutelage. Some of the many things that are important to me and the Poulin’s Auction Company are:

1. Reputation:
During my lifetime, I have maintained a sterling reputation of honesty and fair dealings and that is exactly what Poulin’s is based on. I admire that greatly.

2. Fees:
My dad taught us all that there are essentially two ways to be successful in the world. One way is to charge high exorbitant prices and look out only for yourself, the other is treat your customers, both buyers and sellers, honestly and give them a good deal. Be willing to work for a fair and reasonable amount of money. (Poulin’s unquestionably offers some of the best terms in the firearms world today)

3. Results:
It makes no difference what anyone charges or how honest they are, they must also produce the results. Poulin’s has certainly proven that they can produce tremendous results. Their sales have consistently grown with very strong prices including numerous world records.

I will be working with Nick to re-establish their antiques auction division and build it into one of the major ones in North America. Our summer inaugural sale will be an exciting event and already includes an array of quality items. We are interested in all types of quality items including Folk Art, Early furniture, high end Victorian, all types of quality Chinese items, decoys, historical items, jewelry, fine Tiffany lamps and glassware, rare toys and advertising items, important coin-op items, petroleum advertising, etc.

As always, we will be offering one of the best auction experiences in the market which will include 0% on any items of high value. I look forward with great enthusiasm to working once again with old friends and new as we go forward.”
