You moved the decimal point! The figure I see is £250,000 - well below estimate.

It was unsold whatever the Saleroom has reported. They do not put "Passed" every time.

Anyway apart from that, pretty happy with how my day turned out - 4 of the 5 lots I was selling went for good prices & just one didn't hit the reserve but may have a buyer on commission.

Buying I got 3 of the 5 I really wanted, unfortunately two lots included v Chelsea so on a bit of a hiding there. Does at least mean I turned a profit and still have a few spares to shift on ebay next week
