Come on an antiques pick with me

See also

As an auctioneer I think I have a pretty great job and a lot of people ask me what it's like. My most often reply is: "It's like a treasure hunt". Then the questions really begin.

Folks want to know:

  • What's the best thing I've found
  • What's the most expensive thing I've ever found
  • Have I ever gone into a place I thought was haunted
  • Have I ever found money

I'd never go on a house call without my iPhone, I use if for everything from taking pictures and videos to looking up antiques values. I thought it might be fun to do some videos of picking adventures, so here is my first one.

It's not a Hollywood production by any means, but I thought it would give people a good idea of what it's like to be an antiques picker/auctioneer. If there's an audience response, I'll post more videos.

What would you like to see in upcoming videos?
