Auctioneers get excited when more than one person wants to bid on an item. They know the more people they can bring into the auction will be good for them and fun for all involved. But what if you see something you want to buy before an auction? For most auctioneers, the answer is no. This is because auction houses print catalogs, do advertising in newspapers, print flyers, and do a lot with online pictures for active bidding.  In addition, auction houses have a contact list they send out with all the items that are for sale.  Can you imagine if you were one of the people on the contact list and when you got to the auction, what you wanted to bid on was not there?  Not only would you be angry, but you might even start to question the auctioneer’s ethical behavior.
