Pretty in Pink
The pink cocktail dress from Breakfast at Tiffanys sold for $192,000.
Christie's expected it to auction for $30,000.
I would have loved to have seen the last few moments of the auction. I can only imagine how exciting and tense it was.

Mine: There have been many.
My most satisfying find was my Waterfall bedroom set.
This was my third or fourth house auction.
I stood in a bedroom with a paddle... bidding against a well known Youngstown antiques dealer. It was like a spaghetti western. I stared down my foe with my paddle in the air. I was going home with that set if it killed me.
I won the set for under $500.
