SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 8, 2023 - With more than 30 years of experience in the auction
industry as a personal property appraiser and auctioneer, Stephen Turner of Turner Auctions +
Appraisals is sharing his industry expertise and ushering in the next generation of auction specialists by
presenting & DAUGHTERS Auctions – founded by daughters Cassandra Turner and Elysia Turner-Lechelt,
along with Jason Krell. With that in mind, Turner Auctions + Appraisals is very pleased to host & DAUGHTERS’ premiere auction, MOVERS & SHAKERS, on Saturday, June 24, featuring over 90 lots of
luxury fashion, jewelry, and accessories; rare feminist books; and works by female artists.
“Like many fathers, I hoped that my daughters would take an interest in my business,” explained
Stephen Turner. “To see them embrace the auction industry, while putting a unique spin on it, makes
me extremely proud.” For nearly two years he has been mentoring Team & DAUGHTERS and sharing his
decades of knowledge, so they are well-positioned to curate and host auctions with their own unique
approach and style.
Located in Canada and Europe, & DAUGHTERS is embracing the romance of the auction world, while
harnessing the power of technology and social media to create a business that knows no boundaries and
attracts a new demographic of buyer and seller. “We believe the auction industry is filled with
opportunity – not only to find and present beautiful property, but also to grow the business in a way
that highlights under-represented artists,” explains Cassandra Turner. “Women artists, for example,
currently account for less than 4% of total art sold at auction, and one of our goals for & DAUGHTERS is
to showcase the talented emerging female artists who deserve recognition by the auction industry.”
& DAUGHTERS’ first auction, titled MOVERS & SHAKERS, will be held under the hosting umbrella of
Turner Auctions + Appraisals, and will feature over 90 lots. The sale features contemporary fashion,
jewelry and accessories from designers including Chanel, Gucci, Van Cleef & Arpels, Hermès, and more,
in addition to rare feminist books and works by female artists.
& DAUGHTERS begins its online auction, hosted by Turner Auctions + Appraisals, on June 24, 2023, at
10:30 am PDT; sale items are available for preview, registration, and bidding now. The online auction
will be featured live on multiple platforms: LiveAuctioneers, Invaluable, Bidsquare, the Sale Room, Lot-
tissimo, and Turner Auctions + Appraisals’ free mobile app, which can be downloaded from the App
Store or Google Apps. All are easily accessed through ‘Upcoming Auctions’ at the
