Grandson Hits Pay Dirt

Grandson Hits Pay Dirt
« on: November 13, 2011, 03:32:01 PM »
My 6 year old grandson went with us yesterday to our first auctions. We were standing at the last locker and my grandson was standing in front of me about 10' in front of the auctioneer. The auctioneer yelled out..."did ya'll (southern for you all) have a good time today?" My grandson raised his hand and yelled "YES". The auctioneer called him up to him. He reached into his pants pocket and I thought he was going to give my grandson a piece of candy. Instead he pulls out $2 and gives it to him. SCORE!!!! How many of you have had the auctioneer pay you instead of you having to pay him?

Just saying......

Your grandson is hooked now.  He will have to attend every single auction from here on out.  Congrats!

Yep - smart auctioneer.  Get the grandson hooked and the parents/grandparents will come and maybe spend some money.

I know my oldest daughter is hooked on auctions.  She is just working up the nerve to buy her first unit.  She already helps me look for clues in a unit when the door goes up and what she thinks it may go for.  Her biggest worth is in the selling.  She works her tail off greeting people and such that come to the flea.
