Okay, the auction world.

I have got another great post for you today! Packed with Amazing Auction Results, Fun Facts and so much please enjoy this week's installment installment of LAST WEEK AT THE AUCTION.

Let’s get this one out of the way…

#10 is an antique funeral post mortem photograph that sold for $280 at Matthew Bullock Auctioneers.

I know, I know…why did you have to show us that Josh. Well it’s a quick history lesson of sorts. You see, as soon as photography became "a thing" this was one of the most popular subjects. And for several reasons. People could not easily travel to a funeral or viewing to pay their respects, so why not take a picture..."it lasts longer." Further, death was more accepted as common place and this would not have been considered morbid at the time. And also, photography was very expensive. In fact, one may not have ever had a picture taken during their entire life so this was kind of your finally hurrah.

Have you ever paid for a funeral? Its about ½ a wedding…did I say HAPPY HOLIDAYS Yet ?

#9 is a Hermès Cashmere & Silk Scarf that brought $650 at Hindman.

I want you too keep an eye out for these. I have found stashes of these in estate drawers and as you can see, it’s like finding cash. Look for this signature. This type of goodie goes in my "don’t just dump out the drawers for donation" category. At least not before you have a really good look.
