i enjoy auctions myself, especially estate auctions. the yard sales i go to, seems like the seller has his mind made up and won't bargain. at an auction i have the opportunity to get a steal if no one else recognizes the value of that item. i have had people tell me that going to an estate auction and buying a dead mans stuff is macabre, but most estate auctions are living estates. and those that aren't i actually have a little more respect for the treasures that another man has kept for years. something special about some of those treasures.
