Alright, I'll admit it, auctions can be extremely intimidating if you have never been before (and even if you have). I've been going to auctions since I was just a little lady though and they are my absolute favorite! I love the rush of energy and nervousness you get when they're coming up to a "lot" that you want. Eek! But auctions can be confusing/frustrating and knowing how they work will help your first auction excursion go a lot smoother!
