I grew up very thrifty, and after frequenting flea markets, yard sales, estate sales, and working at Auctions on and off my whole life, I decided to take a leap of faith and try to become an Auctioneer. After working my day job for 20 something years in the Technology field, I went to New England School of Auctioneering and took their 80 hour 8 day course. It was amazing, I met some really nice people, all who were very helpful, and supportive throughout the process of the class, taking the state exam, and up to helping out with my first Auction and beyond. My wife and I also run a Mid Century Modern furniture store called "The Melamine Cup" in Jaffrey NH. our 4 children love to join us in "picking" and help us out at both of our businesses.
