You got that right. Is this buyers premium something specific to online auctions. How do the auction companies justify such a steep rate. I've been attending antique auctions sales since I was five and have never seen a buyers premium. Is ths just something ithey do n the States?

Just to answer a few of the above questions:

YES, once you are registered you can bid - even before auction day. You may put in a "proxy bid" with the amount you're comfortable to pay. Yes, items will be shipped to buyers who bid online. (Shipping costs are in addition to the final purchase price of the item. Will ship via USPS, UPS and freight for large items through "Craters and Freighters.")

Yes, Stanyon, That version of "They're Playing Our Song" was the opening music for Stan's show for many years.

Lothar - Stan only performed the Buzz Saw on the Carson show. There is/was a video on YouTube of him performing the Zig Zag with Clay. BTW, Clay will be back to assist in the final show. Should be a great time.

John - The final performance will be videoed. Not sure what we'll do with it at this point.

The Buyer's Premium is a necessary evil as it helps offset the advertising and production costs/online hosting of the auction.

NOTICE OF CANCELLATION OF THE KRAMIEN AUCTION.

I just received this notice from the Kramien Family. I will post any details as they become available.


"August 22, 2013


To Our Friends in the Magic Fraternity –

Over the past several months, excitement has been running high in anticipation of the Kramien Magic Auction, scheduled for September 1, 2013. We have heard from many old friends, performers, collectors and enthusiasts from around the world.

Regrettably, due to circumstances beyond our control we are taking this opportunity to inform everyone that we must CANCEL the auction at this time.

In the last week, medical issues affecting both Stan and Rick Kramien have necessitated this decision.

We would like to thank David Charvet, who cataloged and organized the auction. We would also like to thank David Goodman for his help and understanding at this decision.

Especially, we would like to thank all of you who planned to attend and for your continued friendship.

Sincerely,

Stan Kramien

Rick Kramien"
