Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

As always, thanks to everyone for your support - buyers for buying and sellers for giving us the stuff to sell. Prices seemed to be on the high side overall, with a couple of machines going through the roof - we usually break a record or two and this year will definitely be no exception. But as you say Tom, there were a few bargains too - I agree, both the Fireworks and the Ball Past the Arrow seemed to go cheaply. But hey, that's the nature of auctions. Most importantly, from the feedback I've had, everyone appears to have had a great day - and that's always the plan! It's why we run these events.
And a spring auction? Well, we're asked this every year - everyone wants to come and buy machines. Unfortunately, we do have a relatively small number of regular vendors, who never let us down, but by the same token don't have a limitless stock of machines to offer. However, things could be looking favourable for a spring bash next year, as I was approached by three sellers on Sunday, who between them could probably come up with 30+ machines. I was also approached by a well-known vintage fairground operator who has asked if we would be interested in a considerable amount of original fairground art. All of that, I think, would give us a good start with an auction in the spring. Jeremy and I haven't had a chance to talk yet, plus I need to talk further with the above mentioned vendors.........but it's looking like it could be a goer.

But back to last Sunday. Once again, thank you to everyone who came, sold and bought. We hope you all enjoyed the day, and from the feedback I've had (the texts and calls started Sunday evening) it seems like you all did.

....ladies in the back room
What? :shock: We've been running this bash for God knows how long, and I've never found this back room with ladies in it. So who else has been keeping this quiet? :#:

A very big thank you to Jerry, Jeremy and all the team for an excellent day.
A warm venue, plenty of seating and everybody nice and friendly.
Happy with the lots I sold and very happy with the a Steeraball I bought (big thank you to Les helping to lift it into the car.)
The pay in and pay out queues soon went down and I was on my way home just after 16.00.
Looking forward to next year.

Yes we're sorry about that.
We did try to drag out the queuing to pay in, but with three of us rattling through it we just failed.

I'm working on the results right now. Should all be ready to view on our auction site sometime tomorrow. I shall also email the results to Mr PM, who will no doubt put them up in the ARENA as usual.
