Auction World: South American Auctions With A Colorful History
The history of Auction World is based in the story of one of the pioneers of auctioneering, Dorothy Cannon. She was one of the first women to break into the field and the current Auction World is the result of the years of Cannon's work. According to information from the Auction World website, Cannon's husband was LA Cannon and he was captured during the second World War. Cannon, left with two sons to raise, was working at a variety of jobs including as a nurse to a dentist. A friend encouraged her to try her hand at auctioneering. It seems that Cannon wasn't initially interested in the proposition and may have eventually agreed to try it only to appease this friend. She vowed, according to information from the Auction World site, that it would be her first and only sale if she didn't like it or if the sale wasn't a success. Her son, Pat, eventually joined the business and took the name even further into the history of auctioneering. If you have items you want to sell on Auction World, there are some rules you need to keep in mind. The first is that Auction World does not allow items to be listed for auction unless there is a photo of the item accompanying the listing form. You should also include details about the item you hope to sell on Auction World along with your own idea about a reserve price. But if you really don't know what you have or what it's worth, don't worry. The pros at Auction World can help you set a reasonable reserve and give you other advice pertinent to the sale.
