When buying and selling art at auctions you must be careful. It's easy to
over bid and get carried away when bidding, set a limit for your top bid and
do your research before bidding. Condition of the object is very important
in determining value. If you are selling make sure you fully understand the
costs to you and what the auction house will charge you. Sometimes, it help
if you explore several auction houses before consigning an object.
