Tip for Auction: Calculated Bidding

Arnette Terry, Office Manager:

Take a look at the lot you would like to bid on and ask yourself what you honestly think is a fair price for it.  Bid based upon this mentality and it will help you determine what you will be comfortable with.  Also, keep the buyers premium and sales tax in mind; some people forget to factor this in to their bottom line.  We always want to make sure our clients are happy and satisfied with their purchase.

Auction Makes Me Feel Like Singing

Hopefully you’re having a good work week.  But, if you find yourself having that hump day feeling, some singing is in order…

To the chorus of “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias –

I love to go to auction baby
Auction takes away my pain
I could browse these lots forever
Please don’t take my paddle away.

*Please visit us on the first Sunday of every month for our estate auction held at the main gallery at 2751 Todd Street, Alameda, CA 94501.  On the following Tuesday/Wednesday is the Annex warehouse auction held at its new and improved location at 2701 Monarch Street, Alameda, CA 94501.

To the chorus of “How Will I Know” by Whitney Houston –

How will I know
The worth of granny’s china?
I have a prayer
Miss Dalton will tell me
It will be done
On Wednesday when we meet
I’m asking her
‘Cause she knows about these things.

*Visit us every Wednesday in our main gallery from 10-1 p.m. and have up to 5 pieces appraised for free!

To the chorus of “Beat It” by Michael Jackson –

Beat it!
Beat it!
Will all my bids be defeated?
Show them the money
Put up a fight
It doesn’t matter
Out bid with might
Just beat it!

*Something to keep in mind: Some of our most successful bidders are floor bidders.  Whenever you can, try to attend live!
