National Auctioneers Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of every April. This year it will be observed on the 15th of April. The day is celebrated every year to honor and remember one of the most ancient professions in the world. Auctioneering is a sales technique that began more than 2,000 years ago. Auctioneers are people who are in charge of a public sale or auction; they provide service for both the seller and the buyer. They should continue high standards to remain competitive.

I love collecting things from the auction – we Brits really are hoarders and collectors.” – Jonathan Anderson.
