Take note of the head-counts for this auction and the one you noticed on auctionzip. I'd be willing to bet the crowd will be three times the size at the auctionzip one.

I much prefer non auctionzip sales.  One the crowd is normally smaller.  Two - I don't pay a 10% buyers premium.

Take your lock(s), flashlight, and bid smart if you bid at all.

Glad you went and just watched... Sounds like a good place to hit. Prices sound very good and the crowd even better.... And making $50 for a helping hand FANTASTIC !!!!! And helping someone out will buy you more than the $50... Way to go bigred.  ;D

Sounds like you had a good day and found a great place.  That is about the normal number of people here for non-advertised auctions in my area.  Though the crowds have grown again I expect them to drop off in Jan/Feb.
