David Palmer. Auctioneer.
David started auctioning in 1982 and concentrated on rostrum work and he now feels he is beginning to understand the art. He has been freelance for the past decade since becoming a house husband. He is an experienced and adaptable auctioneer who has sold everything and enjoys new challenges and all he requires is a PA system and an audience. He has sold from fields, shops, private houses, theatres, nightclubs cathedrals, market squares, restaurants and schools to name but a few locations…He now travels around 40,000miles a year to attend a wide variety of auctions, including emergency relief cover for charities, corporate and commercial auctions. He has even undertaken 3 different sales in one day. David also holds regular talks about his experiences and the life of an auctioneer to a variety of groups. He has conducted sales with only 1 lot to 2,224 lots which is the most to date in a single day! He is recognised for his colourful waistcoats and he can be seen on various television shows such as Flog it, Bargain Hunt, Cash in the attic and he has even won the Anthea Turner Perfect Housewife programme and loves his tiara prize! David has noted that nothing has a constant value and prices are governed by the bidders and the enthusiasm of the auctioneer. His noted animated, informal and humorous style can bring positive results to auctions. David is aware that people need to be entertained as well as parting with their money, he aims to send home all, successful bidders or not, content and wanting to come back for more
