As Auctioneers, we get asked this question frequently, and it is a fun question to contemplate. In the news now is an item that “takes the cake”. The London (AP) is reporting today that a piece of five-layer cake from Charles and Di’s royal wedding 40-years earlier is up for auction. Although it is an opulent slice, it ranks with one of the world’s most unusual auction items.
Being a member of the auction family is a blessing and learning from each other and the amazing programs produced at the convention is a value that is hard to calculate. NAA Auctioneers are professionals constantly honing their craft through education, networking, technology, and selling.

We asked Nancy Cripe, president of GRS Auction Liquidation & Strategy, for liquidation tips. Cripe serves on the recently-formed St. Louis Small Business Task Force, and was the winner of the St. Louis Business Journal's first Catapult Competition in 2016.
St. Louis Small Business Task Force
A company was recently acquired by a larger organization; excess warehouse space and inventory was to be reduced. A thorough review of the assets and location, resulted in a 30-day plan to liquidate a large warehouse loaded with fork lifts, racking, equipment, aluminum bar stock, leather hides, exotic wood, flooring, downdraft tables, aircraft supplies and tools, finally leaving the building broom clean.
