Sorry we were MIA...it was auction week.

The economy is alive and well, at least in Delaware, Ohio. Garth's Annual Labor Day Auction was a blazing success...about 700 lots, over $800,000 in sales. Top lot was this:

Navajo Horse Race by Frank Tenney Johnson (California, 1874-1939), sold for $196,250. Click HERE to hear the bidding.

Guns were also attracting huge interest. Part 1 of a southern collection of firearms and edged weapons, estimated to bring about $50,000-70,000, brought $170,000. More of these to come later this fall.

It's almost time for Deerfield!! Anyone going to be there?

Hmm...guns and western art as the big sellers. I'm going to try not to read too much into that as a barometer of the current zeitgeist.

When will you be in Deerfield? Need to schedule it on my oh-so-busy calendar!
