It’s easier than ever to pay for your items at Stair.

Your Invoice

If you bid successfully you will receive an email notifying you once the sale has concluded. You can log into your account on the Stair website to see all invoices.

Payment must be received immediately, so that we can pay our consignors in a timely manner.


You can access and pay for your invoice with a credit card by logging into your account. Payments accepted include: cash, personal check (from a U.S. bank), wire transfer, Visa, MasterCard & American Express.

Checks should be made out to “Stair Galleries and Restoration, Inc.” and mailed to:

Stair Galleries
549 Warren Street
Hudson, NY 12534

For Wire Instructions call us at 518-751-1000.

To avoid paying the wrong sales tax, if items are being shipped, the shipping address on your invoice must match the destination on your shipper’s bill of lading.

Please note, that if property is not being collected by a registered shipper, you must select “Picked Up” when paying for your invoice. Therefore, if you, a friend, a relative, etc. are picking up your purchase be sure to select “Picked Up”.

If we receive a ST-120 for resale, you are exempt from sales tax.

If you attended the auction in person and successfully bid on an item, please pay at the front desk the day of the auction and collect your purchased lot(s).
