ANOTHER memorable auction! (disaster averted)
Over the years, we have had many outstanding antique auctions, and up until now, TWO very memorable auctions, but now we have THREE!
Whenever fall rolls around, I think back to the time I ran my antique store.
I had a small store, Highways 400 and 88, just outside of Bradford. I ran the business from 1984-1994. (more…)
Auctions can be a lot of fun, and I work hard to make sure they are enjoyable. I think they are supposed to be fun. That’s the difference between a live auction and the on-line auctions.
However, there is the other side of the auction business that most people do not see. Dealing with family who have just lost a loved one, or dealing with someone who is settling their personal affairs. (more…)
I had an interesting phone call today. A guy called me from Boston, said he found my website, and thought we would be a good fit for the service he was trying to sell. Basically they provide the software to allow for on-line bidding in addition to our live auction.
I noticed a big increase in the number of on-line auction companies. Not a direction I am interested in going at this time. I am an auctioneer…I love live auctions...not ready to give that up to spend more time sitting at a computer! (more…)
