In 1998, Propstore founder Stephen Lane’s love for movies led him to hunt for the same props and costumes used to create his favorite films. He found that he could provide collectors with access to their most coveted pieces and establish archival standards for this new, pop-culture hybrid of fine art and memorabilia collecting—prop art.
Since 2014, Propstore has regularly hosted live auctions featuring some of cinema’s most coveted treasures and has continued to break auction records yearly. In recent years, Propstore has expanded beyond film memorabilia, hosting semi-annual cinema poster auctions, and achieved record results in their 2022 Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auctions with the addition of music content. In addition, Propstore holds regular online auctions, partnering with many of the film industry’s major production companies, as well as having over 5,000 items available for sale at a fixed price on www.propstore.com.
