Investment tip: buy straw.
Reports from agricultural auctions indicate that demand for straw is outstripping supply. With the likelihood of a poor harvest because of recent wet weather, the prices are likely to zoom. You read it here first:-)
WELCOME to the AUCTIONEER. Auctioneering is one of the passions of my life. I hope to post bits and pieces of interesting news on auctions and auctioneering which I come across while trawling the web, as well as my own experiences.
Please contact me if you would like a lecture or an after-dinner speech. My favourite lecture is: ‘A history of auctions from Ancient Babylon to Internet Auctions’.
I am also a freelance auctioneer and ALWAYS interested in work. I have conducted over 2,000 auctions. While my speciality is in Collector's Items and Antiques, I have conducted auctions of property, cars, cattle, lettings, gold, tack, computers as well as charity auctions. Have appeared on several TV programs.
