Speaking of losing at auction, I put in a low-ball bid on a pair of Finn Juhl 133 chairs today. For years I've been looking for a match for the one I've already got, but I haven't been able to find anything decent at non-1st Dibs prices. I figured maybe I'd get lucky and no one would be paying attention to this auction, giving me a match and letting me unload the other. Unfortunately I was nowhere near the hammer price (not including the 25% buyer's premium) of $2600. If the chairs were sold to a dealer it puts the 1st Dibs prices in perspective; but at the same time there had been one on eBay recently at $1500 with a major repair, so maybe I'm just too cheap.
