The season starts, always an exciting time. The auction rooms are saving their best items for September-October. Of course as so much is now sold on line and is not dependant on peoples holidays it means there has been business being done from laptops on all the best beaches. Sand and sandwiches have not stopped goodies being snapped up. The annoying thing is very few bargains are available because everyone is aware of sales globally. This should be better for vendors but it doesn’t seem to be. It has made people greedy. Because so many buyers tend to put off buying until the last minute, hoping to find the best deal, the best item, they end up buying nothing. The excitement of finding something delightful at your local market or auction happens less. That same buyer will sit for hours in front of the computer instead. Bridget.
