  Some fun auction history :)
* Auctions Are The Oldest Profession ... Not what you were thinking?  :) ... According to The National Auctioneers Association, auctions date back in history so far that no one knows exactly how they got started or who started them. Records from ancient Greek scribes date auctions as far back as 500 B.C. I'm sorry to say, even women or daughters, were auctioned off. 

* Candles were used in the 1700s at auctions to declare the winner. If you were the high bidder at the time when the candle extinguished itself, you won the auction .. Glad that's in the past :) 

* America’s first president, George Washington, was an avid auction buyer 

* During the Civil War, goods seized by armies were sold by the colonel, hence the auctioneer's unofficial title of "colonel".

Watch for more fun facts to come :)
