GARDNER AUCTIONS INC. was founded in 1922 in London, Ontario by the late George R. Gardner who conducted auctions of household furnishings, antiques and real estate. George R.'s grandson, the late G. Paul Gardner purchased the business in 1975 and gradually changed the direction of the business to one of the major commercial and industrial auction companys operating in Canada and the eastern half of the United States.

The tradition of fine antiques, art and general household furnishings as well as farm auctions is carried on by Paul's daughter, Tiffany. Tiffany is a two time ladies world champion auctioneer. Tiffany is a fourth generation family auctioneer.
