Nat'l Show Bottle Auction

Here's some shots of the Consignors Auction -- preview, getting bidder numbers, waiting, the auctioneer, and the BIG audience. We had a great turnout, and bids are strong.

Our thanks to Mike Grilliot for calling the auction, and Red Philo for his excellent bid spotting.

[Update: the auction grossed just shy of $20,000! The auction was really Jamie's pet project for the show, and it is because of all of his efforts that the auction got the caliber of consignments that it did. The total exceeded his expectations. You rock, Jamie!]
