Went to an auction today

Recommended Posts

Started the day at Ace hardware getting some paint. The we walked a 100m to Atans Larangan carinderia. Delicious meal cheap, p205 all in for 2.

 

When leaving wife said she noticed an auction sign at the Japanese place up the road. We walked about 50m and arrived at Kobe Motors Trading/Marutaka Auctions. p1000 entry fee, to be used at auction. Definitely keeps the riff Raff out.

 

1st hour of the auction was plates, chine sets etc etc. We were hanging in for an armoire. 2nd hour was some linens and stuff, we purchase a towel, 4 sheet sets, 4 large/flat/square Sala pillows and a Japanese bathrobe. All brand new and all 4 sets totaled p600 together.

 

3rd hour was small furniture and knick knacks. Got a beautiful standing 5' mirror with metal frame for p400. Then the furniture started rolling. A beautiful chest of 11 drawers, 42"L x 66"H x 20"W. Solid wood, superior craftsmanship and much desired but I have zero use for the beast. It got as low as p3000 ($56 USD). No one bought it. Picture below

 

Next was the piece we were waiting for, a double armoire, dark wood, magnificent craftsmanship and overall just a beauty. Bidding started at p17000, no one bud. Dropped to p16000, no bids. Then last price of p15000, I got it. Sorry, didn't get pics.

 

I went down street to M Lhullier to get funds. Returned and settled up. Wife still wanted a set of bowls so we stayed a bit.

 

Ended up buying a few more items: set of 3 tableclocks p300, a beautiful Hohner accordion p700, a dozen solid wood picture frames p900 and finally her set of bowls p400.

 

They add a 10% fee to everything and allow 3 days to pickup & pay. Total we spent p20,570 ($389 USD). I'll probably make that on the accordion and picture frames taking them to USA next week.

 

Next auction in 6/23 & 6/24. As far as poor Filipinos, I was outbid at least 20 times on items. One lady easily spent well over p100k today.25ec1cbdac75002899859f1b5080842b.jpg68f7b40c14f6a413ce05a52cc355d46c.jpg

Were there any indications what the selling prices were before the items ended up in the auction?

Some questions,

1) is there a website? can only find car auctions for Kobe

2) is there a list/leaflet or similar giving details of items in auction?

3) was the 1k fee used as part payment for items or just a flat door charge non-returnable?

Similar chest on Mactan were priced 20,000 to 30,000 each. They are almost airtight, and do not appear to be affected by humidity.

When I get my stuff delivered I will upload pics.

The serving bowls alone were worth it to the wife. They were quite beautiful and good size, perfect for holiday occasion.

I was most surprised with the accordion and this Japanese robe. Darn this is brand new, in package and weight almost 3 kg, might be worth something. Picture frames were great too. All solid wood with wood backing, clearly 20+ years old.

I'll be out to USA next auction but wife wants to go and get some stuff for reselling.
