An Auction Guide


Self Anointed Experts - Index


  • BEWARE of the self anointed 'dealers'. I'm sure you have noticed them. This is probably the only profession where you can call yourself a 'dealer' with no degree or certification. These people use this term loosely and hold no schooling, qualification or long term exposure in the market in which to judge a marketable value of any item being sold. They usually sell in the local flea market on the weekends during the summer, and sell items that are damaged, questionable or outright reproductions passing as being old and authentic.  At least one shows up every auction. They're usually the most outspoken critics. Complaining about everything from the prices in which items are bringing to criticizing the auction process. They'll claim to know everything there is to know about anything. Amongst other things, these people will: hang around an auction running up the prices to their competitors, hide items in the bottoms of boxes, steal items, attempt to buy everything for a dollar and break things when they don't get their way. Watch these people CLOSELY. Being a 'feeder' for over 5 years, I have a hard time keeping and eye on them . Be careful, these individuals are experienced in creating illusions to mask their true purposes.
