    Ok guy, you donít like someone stating an opinion. Odd stance as you have no horse in the race. That being said, I too have done well at auctions and shows. But no need to spend extra money on things that shouldnít be charged for. I think we can all agree on that. I donít care what the auction houses do, I just seem to make out better at o es that donít charge extra fees. Those are the ones that usually get really good stuff to sell as well. Iím not telling anyone what to do with their money or where to spend it so no need to get all offended here.

    I was not offended, I was just thinking the way you stated your 'opinion' was a bit much. I actually agree that buyer's premiums suck, but they are fact of life at a lot of places.

    Yea really , I don't give these types of auctions a second look !
