We were discussing the Amati Auction in another thread and today hubby and I were at an antique Auction...which got me wondering about regional vs specialized auctions vs mindset. I know auction mentality kicks in and people overspend...but around here I swear auction prices far exceed retail prices...yet dealers are buying stock and I can't figure out how they are making a profit. I assume violins (specifically) also fall into that category? Or do dealers only dump and NOT buy from auctions? And who wants dealer discards? Obviously people are making money...
