Drawing on his experience working in his father's Toronto stamp store, Vance Carmichael ran his very first Mail Auction in November 1972. It consisted of 348 lots on one page in Linn's Stamp News. Over 350 sales later there have been many changes. What started as a 'one man show' now requires a staff of up to fifteen full and part time employees to run six auctions each year. The office space has expanded four times within the same building, and the address in Smithville has remained the same for forty-five years.

Vance Auctions continues to serve the philatelic community with integrity, providing a valuable source of material. Accurate lot descriptions and superior customer service keep collectors and dealers around the world coming back for more.
