A Paris highlight: attending (yet another) auction at Sotheby’s, this time an African art and sculpture collection that was delightfully outside of my normal interests (read: Impressionism or bust). I stood in the back corner, along with several gallery girls, diligently taking notes on every lot and paddle number. I love that place, which sounds strange, given all the monuments and museums in the city, but I do. If you’ve ever been curious about auctions, go! They’re open to the public, endlessly entertaining (where else can you see millions of dollars spent so freely and openly?), and informative, if you’re an aspiring novelist or art enthusiast.

  • Shall we put Sotheby’s on the list?

  • I would have never thought about attending an auction but what a fun idea. I love your photos, they take me right back to Paris. I’ve only been once but fell in love!

  • My favourite photos are the auction ones! Any drama in the auction house? Or exciting outfits?

  • International auction goer: I love it Erin!
