If you’ve never been to an antique auction, it can be a big change of pace compared to ordinary stores. To get your bearings and best participate in an antique auction, here are a few tips:
You never know what a day at the auction has in store for you. It’s best to come prepared. Bring a bottled water and something to snack on. Additionally, wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Depending on the auction you attend, you may be standing for a large portion of it.
Before an auction starts, each lot should be on display, so you’ll know what will be available that day. Keep in mind what you most want to bid on and get an idea of how much you are willing to spend on said items.
Not only does a day become more enjoyable with a family member or friend, but you now have someone to keep you in check. They can help you decide when you’re going too high, if you need to bid again, when you should take a break and other general encouragement.
You may not always win the item you were bidding on, but that’s okay! Buying at an antique auction isn’t always easy, but the more you try the better you get. Keep visiting local antique auctions, like the ones offered at Kyle Kelso Auctions, and you’ll be getting the best deals on beautiful antiques in no time.
