Buying Art At Auction
What makes a home stand out is the flow it has. From the architecture to the interior design, many people are looking for ways to decorate their home. Unless you have thousands of dollars to spend, most furniture being manufactured today is made very cheap with the exception of the price tag.
For example, you can pay $80 at ikea for a bookcase, or go to a business liquidation sale and buy a used quality book case for $15-$25. The savings you receive at an auction are absolutely amazing not to mention the unique items you can aquire.
Within the last several years I have seen a steady growth in attendance at our auctions. Typically I can spot the usual antique dealer, or the online reseller. However lately many individuals are attending auctions to find great deals. The fact is if you want unique conversational pieces for your home you need to go out an search for them. It does require a little time and effort, but the payoff is well worth it in the end.
One of the trends I am noticing is when conducting eviction sales many people are leaving behind quality art work. If you visit second hand stores such as the Salvation Army you will notice the large amount of art work they acquire. Most of these pieces are donated or left behind for numerous reasons. Many times art work is inherited from a family member who passed away.
If your on a budget and looking to decorate those walls in your home consider looking for art work at an estate auction.
