Pacific Book Auction - A good place to do business



I wanted a couple of "great find" stories to end our chat and Bruce obliged. "We had a book of Wells West scenery [actually Midwestern] that we thought would go for about $6,000. It went for $24,000. Also, we once got a box of books from a book scout for $500 and later sold a book out of it about the Panama gold rush for $6000. We live for things like that."

I'd like to thank Bruce MacMakin and his terrific staff for allowing me the time to wander through their friendly offices and take pictures as they scrambled to get ready for another of their very professional auctions. If you are interested in their action house, go to their user friendly website at www.pbagalleries.com or phone them, toll free, at 866-999-7224.
