Auction tips from personal experience!

I'm not a big auction goer but I did learn a good lesson back in November when I attended an auction. I was so happy to be seeing friends and other collectors I waited a little too long to go pick up a box lot containing bowls that I bought. When I got to the table, my box lot was gone...yet I still had the ticket to pay for it! My fault for not going to get it promptly ....but shame, shame on the person who took it!

Again, check out the terms of auctions you're attenting or bidding on via the net. Some auctioneers allow the "house" to bid an item up to the price the seller wants...doesn't seem fair to me...

You'll NOT find this at Jeff Koehler's auctions..That's why I like attending auctions of his!


Our favorite McCoy auctioneer has done it again...he's booked another McCoy auction. This one is l,000 pieces from long time and well known collectors, Dan and Marge Prater. It's scheduled for April 17, I's on SUNDAY Check his website for details as they emerge. This is at the end of tax season and everyone will have their refunds. What better to spend it on than McCoy?
