The Art of Auctioneering

Thursday, May 2, 2013  
12:15 PM - 1:45 PM

DVD – 89 minutes

People go to auctions in search of that perfect item at a bargain price. Taking part in the bidding action is exciting, but you must respond quickly or another person may outbid you. Auctioneers chant in a rhythmic monotone, so you must pay close attention. The more the auctioneers sell, the more they earn, so they have a good reason to keep the momentum going. This film offers a rare inside look at the entire process.
