As for it being on Tuesday, there is a reason. If you list an auction on a Saturday morning, you will be competing with tons of auctions all around you. For example, this Saturday, there are 47 auctions within a 50 mile radius of my house. Unless you have one killer auction, your big money buyers are going to be spread pretty thin. Tomorrow (Tuesday) there is 1 auction in that 50 mile radius. Plus, your antique dealers are working their stores on the weekends. Weekday auctions are easier for them to attend. Collectors don't worry about the weekday either. They will attend or leave an absentee bid. Just some of the psychology that goes in to having a successful auction. You can't just throw stuff out in the yard and post a small classified ad anymore.
