We shopped (and bought) in an antiques online auction!
Last week we offered below asked price bids on five items at a local auction house. It was their Aftersale, and we had been waiting to pick up a couple of decorative pieces for the Beltway apartment. We offered about 75% of the lowest asked price of each item. Within a couple of hours we were notified that we were the proud owners of all five pieces! My hub's words --"We bid too high!" He is convinced we could have gotten all five items for half of the lowest asked price, but they are ours no matter what.
We picked up the Comtoise clock, unsigned oil painting of boats, and the petite barley twist drop leaf table on Tuesday. This afternoon a buffet and a china cabinet will be delivered.
