Holy Hockey Puck!

Here we go again. It is time I report back from Last Week at the Auction. America’s Favorite Top 10 List of Auction Results from around the Globe. I am humbled to be you tour guide to this wonderful secondhand subculture. And I am proud to bring you the latest from the world of auctions, estate sales, yard sales, garage sales and thrift stores.

There is a treasure hunt going on every day, and I want you to get in on it. My hope is these posts inspire and illustrate the potential of this lesser known market. If you like this sort of thing, it really can be a career or a very profitable hobby. I hope you enjoy today’s list and better yet, have a few new takeaways. I learn something every week. Here goes.


#10 is a Dan Tague Oil on Paper that brought $650 at New Orleans Auction Galleries, it was 19" by 13" and titled MURDER…find a few of these and you could make a real killing.


#9 Stilnovo Italian Table Lamp that brought $2400 at Heritage. Circa 1970 and approx. 26" tall, mid-century lighting is hot. Keep your eyes peeled. These are at your local thrift stores.


#8 A George II Needlework Panel just sold for $3250 at ABELL. The 14x15" sampler style embroidery is just the kind of thing you will come across a nice East Coast Estate Sale and I am sure you will now take a 2nd look at the price tag.
