[Aside to camera
If home is where the heart is, then this is home to me, an auction room, an auction day when the old ticker beats faster with the slender possibikity that somewhere, just somewhere among the birdcages, silver spoons, commerative medals, roll top desks and castoffs from Grannie's attic, somewhere amongst that lot, a genuine authentic antique will appear shining with all the love that made it.
