You just might find that Victorian bed on the list, along with hundreds of other antiques. Buying Procedures at Auctions. Regardless of where an auction is held, the procedure for buying is the same. You approach a table or counter where one or two people sit and ask for a bidding card. The person there will ask for some identification, then issue you a large cardboard card that has a number written on it. The card costs nothing, but you can't bid without it.

Smart dealers always arrive at an auction at least a half hour before its advertised starting time. The first reason is to stake out a place up front close to the auctioneer, where it's easy to see the merchandise being auctioned. Most auctioneers will let you reserve such a seat in some way. One method is to tape a piece of paper with your name on it to the seat. The second reason for arriving early is to look over the merchandise.

Many auctioneers won't allow you to browse through the items once the auction starts, and if you haven't scrutinized everything carefully beforehand, you can make some big mistakes once the bid-ding begins. Few auctioneers are really dishonest, and most will point out a flaw if they know of it, but all merchandise at an auction is sold as is. You should walk through the merchandise to be auctioned, taking note of anything you might want to bid on. Examine those pieces carefully for cracks, chips, missing pieces, or any other flaws.

Every item will have a lot number, which auctioneers call out when the piece comes up before them. Write the lot number of antiques on which you plan to bid on the back of your bidding card. Beside the number, write the amount you're willing to bid for it, based on what you think you could sell the antique for. Dealers always write the highest bid they're willing to go on every item on the back of the card.

Side Refine Panel

This is good insurance against getting caught up in what's called "auction fever. You bid by holding up your card. That's just the auctioneer's way of getting the bidding started. If you're new to buying at auctions, I suggest you attend several of them before placing bid. You can learn a lot about buying at auctions by watching the other dealers. How do you know who's a dealer? They're the ones constantly checking the back of their bidding card as they bid. They're the ones who look so serious that you'd think they ere in the middle of a business conference.

They enjoy the auctions, but they don't get emotional about them, as do most bidders who aren't dealers. Any antiques auction offers the potential for finding good buys, but for real bargains you can't beat the ones held in the country. The farther the auction is from a large town, e better your chances will be to come home with your car full of treasures at rock bottom prices.

A Virginia dealer was out for a drive on a beautiful fall day, but not out scouting. She stopped at a country store to buy a cold drink and noticed a flyer on the window announcing an auction. Being an auction addict, she asked the store owner how to get to the auction. He told her to go eight miles down the road and then five miles down another road before turning onto a gravel road.

So she started out and drove and drove and drove. Pretty soon, she headed farther and farther into the hills. She finally found the place and parked her car. There were quite a few people milling around looking at the merchandise spread out in front of the beautiful country home, but not many dealers, so she was able to make some excellent buys. One of the best was a large cardboard box that held a beautiful silver water pitcher, eight silver dinner plates, three silver trays, and several small silver bowls. Many auctions go on for hours and hours. Plan to stay until the end, because that's often when you'll get your best buys, maybe even some real bargains for 50 cents to a dollar or two.

Many auction houses hold weekly consignment auctions on a particular day of the week. Items in these auctions may be assorted or grouped on a theme, such as American folk art.
