Smile It appears folks were saving their pennies

Based on the current auction prices, it appears folks were truly staying home and saving their money the past few months!

Smell that? That's the smell of cotton burning (money burning holes in people's jeans)!

Excess discretionary income is going to drive up the prices when people aren't eating out, going on vacations or spending coin on entertainment(Sports/Concerts).

Folks are bored with an itch to spend.

Buckle up.

I'm surprised. We have massive unemployment locally even with the current "re-opening". I'm in a historically stable business and we find out at close of business today whether we will have our hours cut for June and July.

Not surprised. Look at Ebay. Almost everything collectible has rose in price. Nobody is spending money on "normal" activities.
