Check out a few of the things I found out in Brooklyn last week.

The Treasure Chest / The one I will always remember.

I was at an auction basically trying to buy everything I could from clothes to toys to fill my shop for the grand opening. The room I remember the most was the 7th one of the day that I won. $125 lots of trash bags and a few bins. As I started to go through the room I was finding nothing but trash and figured that's a $125 I won't be getting back until I pulled out a bag of old books. Books to me are a dime a dozen since I come across them so many times. This time I actually decided to take a look through a few. As I'm going through them I come across one that looks a little bit older than the rest. I open it up to see that it has been signed and inscribed. To my surprise the signature was F.Scott Fitzgerald. The book was the beautiful and the damned. That book turned out to be way more than the $125 I spent for the room. I ended up getting $4,000 for it. It was a first edition second press. If it would have been the first press with dust jacket it would have been worth around $75,000. Morale to the story from now on check all books for signatures before discarding.

I'm here to talk about the auction game. Any questions you guys might have fire away. Be nice and I will answer just about anything. First off I am a regular auction buyer just like anybody else. I have been doing this for a long time. I'm a typical New Yorker with the mentality that if you treat me right I will do the same in return. Even tho I have been doing auctions for what seems like a lifetime I still learn new things everyday.
