Auction Time

At Hudson Valley Old Time Power Club in Hudson, New York


| October/November 1986


72 Derick Drive Fishkill, NY 12524

Saturday, May 9, dawned clear and chilly. By 5 AM lines of late consignors were noted, and over 1000 items were already tagged and in place. Smoke was coming from the refreshment stand where hundreds of sausage and pancake servings, plus gallons of coffee were being prepared. In the headquarter building individuals were up all night preparing and computerizing the many items already in place, plus the names of all known consignors and bidders. It was the first year for the computer which was a mixed blessing.

Promptly at 10 AM, under warm and sunny skies, the whistle sounded and the auction began. During the nine hours of activity, auctioneers Ed Friedman of Claverack, NY and John Lynch of Amityville, NY sold 1188 items for $42,743. There was something priced for everyone hundreds of items sold for under ten dollars. Dozens of volunteers made the event possible. Without them this auction could not be held.

The computer made possible for the first time a complete listing and price of each and every item. Specific prices of selected items are as noted.
