Entering the winter quite period with little or nothing to look forward to , toward the end of the year .
Best Day ever !
Netherhampton’s “winter shindig” is in the books and up to this point it appears to be a typical Netherhampton turn of events. No upside pops and pretty much modest prices fetched across the boards . Out of the 343 total lots offered up for purchase approximately 209 attracted bidding interest . If these figures stand up its a sold percentage of right at 61% which is actually not bad for this late in the season. Unfortunately only 8 lots broke the £ 1,000.00 threshold . Nothing to get excited about but a lot of mid to low end merchandise sold and a job fairly well done by Ms Barrett and staff so a year end “tip of the hat” to them !
Well the Grogan sale just wrapped up and i don’t quite know what to say other than its most certainly not the usual Grogan outcome. Out of the 63 lots of rugs, carpets , books and textiles run across the podium only 41 garnered any interest . A sold percentage of right at 65% far less than the standard Grogan sale total . Nothing at all in the way of any upside pops either and Caucasians seemed very weak . This was a limited size offering but i but surely thought it would fair better than this .
Oh , well back to the drawing board for M.G. and staff on this front . Get’em next time !
R.I.P. , Pat DiNizio , lead vocalist and co founder of the “Alt Rock” band , The Smithereens . Not nessacerly my cup of tea but he wrote or co-wrote a string of memorable hits throughout the 80’s and 90’s. Through your songs your legacy will live on !
More bad news .
Via con Dios , Warrel Dane , lead singer of the legendary metal bands , Sanctuary , Nevermore and as a solo artist in his own right . Far to young at 56 but but your music will certainly keep your memory alive . You are already missed !
