Antiques Auction - Note time change

Update

Ladies ~ Thank you to Donna, who works at Crown Auctions noted that the time of this auction begins at 11 am, not 1 pm as I had previously listed. She also suggests getting there around 10 to get seats together. The doors open @ 9:00 for those who want to preview items. I'll get there around 10:30.

I've always wanted to attend a live auction and this locale is easily accessed from Rt. 93.

The auction house describes it this way: Coming on January 13, 2013- That's 1/13/13! A Once in a Hundred Years Date & A Once in A Hundred Years Event! It's our annual Kick-Off the New Years Auction. Only the Best For This One- We've Already started Posting Pics. Mark your calenders now WELCOME TO “BOSTON’S MOST EXCITING AUCTION ACTION!” WE ARE AT YOUR SERVICE!

For you serious collectors, pictures are posted here: http://www.auctionzip.com/cgi-bin/photopanel.cgi?listingid=1611823&feed=1

I'm just going for the excitement and to see some beautiful old things. Join me?

    Tip: Get there early and if you like an item, look it over very carefully, then set your limit before the item comes up. I go for the fun and if I find something I really like, for myself, I will bid what it's worth to me as I never plan to re-sell it but to enjoy the item. At the end, there were some very good buys! But I would always advise against spontaneous purchases!

    Hi Everyone, I enjoyed the auction but it was long. I bid on something after Anne left! But, since I was talking to Linda, I missed that the Victorian Bag had some damage. But, it was fun.

    I hope everyone enjoyed yesterday's auction. Typically it is not that crowded I hope u got there early enough to get a seat. It usually does not last that long either. Usually they run less than 4 hrs.

      Hi Donna, Thanks to you, I got there early and saved seats (which I could only give to those women I recognized from their pictures posted on the site, hint, hint). It was fascinating, but I'm glad to know it does not usually last that long. I left @ 3:00 because I'd been there since before 10. I'd go again, but not sure I'd bid against some of the regulars.

    Donna, I couldn't do this Sunday, but I went on the site and saw that they run the auctions often. Did anyone buy anything? How were the auction sale amounts like?

    This would be something my husband would love.

      Hi Ronni, I'd contact them and ask how they purchase their items. From the little I know, these places make purchases in advance of their sales, but that might not be a hard and fast rule.

      They do not look at items the day of the sale. It's just too busy the day of the auction.
