Welcome to Moore's Hillje Auction


We are a family owned, full service auction company.  Our story began over 20 years ago, when our founder caught the "auction bug".  James Moore was a Teacher and Coach by profession and a collector at heart.  Upon his retirement from coaching, he needed something to feed his competitive spirit, so a new game began.  He would spend each weekend checking out garage sales, flea markets, auctions, etc for his deals -- you see the game was "how little can you pay and how much can you sell it for?".  We have laughed about his planning trips around yard sales, and every vacation he came home with much more than he left with.  So in 1996, when the previous owners of Hillje Auction decided to sell, James jumped into the ring.  He was the face of Moore's Hillje Auction for over 18 years and truly enjoyed the years he spent as an auctioneer and the friends he met along the way.  Upon his death in 2014, Moore's Hillje Auction was left without an auctioneer, prompting James and Maxine's oldest son, Kirk, to obtain his license, in order to continue the family business. 

Maxine, Kirk, and the Moore Family have continued to conduct business in the same spirit as James ---- Honesty is always the best policy.  We strive to have happy clients, whether consignors or buyers, and to provide  everyone with a enjoyable auction experience.  Moore's Hillje Auction hopes to continue serving the Coastal Bend area for years to come.

May Online Auction

Our Consignment Auctions are moving online for the time being.  We are striving to continue serving our consignors and buyers amongst the current Covid 19 shutdowns.  We are still taking consignments on Mondays and Tuesdays and working to catalog and lot items to be presented and sold through our online platform.  Thank you all for your patience and support -- we have had so much positive feedback from our March sale! We hoped to bring you one in April, but were unable to do so due to travel restrictions.  However we have been hard at work and are happy to announce that our May Online Consignment Auction opens TOMORROW!  If you have registered online with Hibid at anytime, use your Hibid login info to sign in to our auction.  You will only need to verify credit card information.  We still have our video on how to register and bid here on the website and on our Facebook page.  And, as always, you can call us with any questions.  The link to the auction is below:


Thanks Again -- Stay Safe and Happy Bidding!
