There's more info about auctions on the Auctions Find , Auction Advertiser and Live Auctioneers websites (the last is to help you find the value of an item at an auction).
And if you'd like to know more about professional auctioneer Andrea Zeifman---she's with A. H. Wilkens Auction House in Toronto---you can visit the A. H. Wilkens website.
You can contact Talin with your consumer questions or concerns by e-mailing her at Citizen Talin .
