AuctionWally a new auctioneer podcast

I stumbled upon this podcast recently at , and finally had time to listen to all his current and past episodes. A very interesting listen to keep you amused as you drive down the highway I must admit.

Whether you are an auctioneer or an auction enthusiast you may find something amusing here.

What happens when you drink too much Labatt's Blue ?

You look like like these guys ! Thanks to those who organised the media outing for us while attending a recent convention in Las Vegas to attend the Blue Man Group show.

It's amazing how there are comparison's between how the Internet of today works like the original network that connects everyone's home.........Plumbing !

To Share...or Not to Share ?

While looking through my log files today I came across a spike in referrals from an antique industrial equipment enthusiast site called Practical Machinist . While that on it's own is no great reason for a blog post, a thread I found on that site regarding auctions was most informative.

If you were going to an auction sale locally, would you broadcast to fellow enthusiasts the details about the sale which could potentially increase the competition for items that you would want to buy cheap?

It is a very interesting read, and not the usual type of warm fuzzy feelings you usually find at a collectors website.

Be sure to read my comments in the thread, which I feel sums up how the collectors would want to be treated when it's their turn for a sale.
