Have you ever tried participating in an auction? The energy is so different; a mixture of excitement and palpable anxiety over what people are trying to win. Everyone should at least watch one once.
Before using my paddle, I watched how it went. I’m far from being an expert in these things, but here are some tips I’ve learned: 1. Know what you want to bid on in advance. 2. Write down your limit. It is easy to get carried away. 3. Stick to your plan. 4. If you don’t win it, it wasn’t meant for you. These are the simple guidelines I follow. And yes, I’ve won a couple of pieces here and there. Luckily, most on the first bid.
This issue, get to know the newest auction house, Casa De Memoria. What I like about this place is their wide variety of well-curated offerings. There will definitely be a piece meant for you here.
I should know—I’ve won a couple on my first try.
