I still think it would be a good idea to wear name badges .........then I'd know who not to start chatting with before the penny dropped

Yes, its a problem leaving bids, as I have learnt over the years at railwayana auctions ( as I collect enamel signs too) as Mr Wall often turns up especially at the Stafford one, the poor sods that I know have left high bids always seem to be 'lucky' enough to get it a their top bid! and yes if you are buying a machine you really need a good look at it before committing yourself before you leave a commission bid, although I have left a bid at EH and got it £120 cheaper than my bid, and the machine was fine, no doubt others might have had a different experience.( I believe an auction house can bid up a buyer but only to the reserve ) lets all have a good day snow permitting, at which venue(s) you choose!

Two men go into an auction, ones got money and ones got knowledge.
When the auctions over, the man with knowledge has money and the man with money?
Has knowledge. !SMARTY!

It seems to be "Whether" to go to one, the other or both.

Some are commenting that the distance is around 12 miles.
It's not 12 miles at 60 MPH.
I know the area like the back of my hand, it could take you 10 mins to find your car in L'Spa and then at least 40 minutes to make the journey.
If you don't know the area then it could be a lot longer.
The Bacon Butties and bar opens from 10 am at Coundon, the car park is outside the door and it's warm inside.

If we see you GREAT! If we don't .... have a great and fruitful time and above all enjoy yourselves and stay safe. !THUMBS!

easy to see you have never been to the town of coventry DB, if it rains in coventry its considered an exciting day, The auction is the high spot of the towns year,another two years and the mayor gives and the two "j's" the keys to the city,which will be handy as there are a lot of people trying to get out !PEEP!
