I looked at that auction site. Lot's of stuff, but with a 24% buyers premium, no real deals.
I'll keep looking for that needle in a haystack.

That's a pretty stiff buyers premium. 10-15% maybe. I think this buyer/seller premium bit has gotten out of hand. I have never agreed with the whole concept in the first place. The auction house charges the seller a percentage, usually 25%, of gross then adds the premium charge too. I have a auctioneer friend who charges 10% seller and buyer premium plus the 25% of gross sales.

Premiums are terrible.. The auction site/company gets paid both front and back. There's a sellers fee and a buyers fee. Hate to tell you what those car auction site get, like Mecum and Barrat-Jackson.

Like flyernut said; premiums are terrible for a lot of things.
A lot of people will pay though, just not me.
I do like looking through haystacks.
