Almost everyone loves an auction.

Tip number 2
Get to the auction at least 1 to 2 hours early. This is a must do. When you get there early, you avoid the long line to sign up for your bidding number. You find a good place to park, and you are able to examine everything, everywhere at the auction site.

No matter where you are, there's always someone that just might take your items while you are busy bidding on more things. This could happen accidentally, or on purpose, either way, once you stuff is gone, you still have to pay for it.
Oh, and wear a hat, it gets hot under the sun.
That's three very important tips for you to remember.
This topic will be covered in several blogs.
