I brought a job lot of books from the auction the other day. This consisted of two boxes of books and included some auction catalogues. When we got them home I noticed that two of the catalogues had been signed by a very famous footballer, another had been signed by a famous singer. The catalogues had come from auctions that had sold items belonging to both the footballer and the singer.

@millie02 Such a fortunate find may never happen again, but I would also be tempted to return.

I used to buy box lots all the time and had very good luck finding unforeseen treasures.

@millie02 I bought a box of porcelain trays at one auction and I made a small fortune from it. I got almost $100 for just one of them.

That's better than me, I wouldn't know a famous footballer if he tackled me on the High Street!

WOW that is interesting. Perhaps the catalogs are worth money since they have famous signatures.
