Tips on auction bidding

Find stuff you didn't know you wanted and have a blast bidding on it

Listen to the radio story mp3

There's nothing quite like a live auction. Don't worry about scratching your nose and suddenly finding that you bought something you had no intention to. Auction law says a person has to accept the sale before it's actually sold to them. Still, you should be careful not to get caught up in "bidding fever". Set a price and don't let the excitement make you go over your budget.
