8 Hours... Wasted?

I'm going to keep this short.  I know I ooh'ed and aww'ed about the auction I was going to today.  I showed up MEGA early to check out all of the stuff.  It was a large turnout, as expected.  I bid on MANY, MANY things.  I got outbid on MANY, MANY things.  I have never been to an auction where I couldn't buy ANYTHING.  Everything that I thought was amazing and that I could definitely sell, someone else thought the same thing... and they paid full blown retail prices... and sometimes way more than that.  I sat for 8 hours.  My arm was tired of bidding.  My ass sore from sitting.  I finally won 2 chippy old sleds and then I left.  I was so disheartened.  THANKS, MOM, FOR STICKING IT OUT WITH ME! :)

Is everyone else starting to experience the skyrocketing price phenomenon that happens when cold months arrive?  Please tell me I'm not the only one.

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh......
