What happened at the auction?

Well I am sorry to say that if you were not there you missed it! Was it worth going to? Well I will let you decide.

There was a complete National Hive there with two supers, a brood, crown board, roof and legs and that went for £76 and then another one for £95. Now you don’t have to look far in some well known catalogues to realise these were bargains.

For those of you interested in microscopy then this was your chance to pick up a good looking microscope for £40 – another bargain.

National Supers were going for about £10 each.

Not everything was sold and a manual spinner with settling tank did not reach its reserve of £100 but for many things there was brisk and enthusiastic bidding.

This year I don’t need anything but next year could be different and I will certainly be putting the auction on my calendar.
