I never have liked auctions too much…it is hard for me to sit all day and wait til something I like comes up for bid. Recently I went to one and got a little carried away! I have always wanted a hall tree, and when this one came up for bid, I managed to ‘win’ it! The only problem is that when I got home with the piece, I wasn’t sure at all that I liked it. So, I’m going to keep looking for one I like better! This one will probably end up in one of my booths, and I doubt very seriously that I’ll make much money on it if any! It is pretty in it’s own way, and the price was right, but it’s just not the one!
So, lesson learned for me-auctions are not my ‘cup of tea’! I would rather pay a little more and buy something from an antique store when I have time to really mull over the purchase. Auctions are too much pressure!
So, what about you? Do you buy at auctions? Do you think you get great buys?
