One of the good things about my move into the booze industry is that, surprisingly, the amount of booze I buy has gone down.

I’ve been egged on by my evil cow-orker Tim who, having sat at the knee of our boss for the last few years, knows a few things about buying stuff from the block and has offered a guiding hand. Anyways, here’s a little bit of advice from a n00b to the world of auctions, as well as some pointers of where to look.
