    I agree with Mike's assessment. I arrived on Saturday morning to a warehouse full of junk, just crap. By the time the auction started there were about 10 people in the bidding room, including the auctioneer. Waste of time.

      There was no auctioneer when I was there around 9:30.

    No stars are merited by this event.

    No surprise the main event on Saturday was cancelled. Kudos to whoever had the judgement to call the event a bust and cancelled the auction. I worked the front door on Fri night for the "First Dibs Event" checking IDs--freezing my ass off, by the way. Everyone arriving was full of expectation of a fine time of antiques, music, and the mix of people. Later--not that much later, as they left, their expressions invited my commiseration at their disappointment that there was nothing of value to bid on or buy. It was all junk--I had a chance to check the stuff out, myself, and except for a few lights and chandeliers, who would pay $269 for a locker room locker or over a $100 for a pitted surface, metal deck? Shame on whoever was promoting this event as an art auction. They didn't do their work.

      I'll pass that sentiment on to the promoter.

    The auction got canceled, but there's lots of free ice right near the front door.
