I find trivia to be an intriguing look back to the past. When I am researching something I have for my shop, and I run across an interesting bit of trivia about the items designer or construction, I will often include it at the bottom of my listing to help the collector realize another important aspect of the treasure they are about to purchase.

Whether you’re casually window shopping or on an urgent mission for a specific piece, item presentation can provide ease and enjoyment or discouragement and frustration in your search.
Your item description is a major part of your overall presentation. Compare an overly lengthy description to crowds at a chaotic sale - you don’t want to fight through those crowds, or read through those descriptions, only to come away disappointed and empty-handed!

I attended and worked at a country auction on a recent Friday. I helped set up for the auction food stand, delivered items and made a crock pot of chili. Over 75 people attended the sale on a lovely sunny day outside of town. We raised money for a charity.
