June 7, 2011You Bought It! – Tips for purchasing at antique auctions
We’ve all been to garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores in the hunt for the perfect mid-century pieces for our homes. Another great source of mid-century pieces can be antique auctions. Just like antique stores and shows, not everything at these auctions is a true antique, there are many great vintage pieces to be found at auction as well.
Having recently gotten into the world of buying at live auctions, I found my first experience to be very overwhelming! So, I thought I would share some tips based off of my auction experiences that hopefully you will find useful should you decide to start attending and buying from auctions!
That’s it! Does anyone else attend live auctions, and if so, do you have any tips you want to share?
