Tip: Try to stay away from buying art prints and buy inexpensive originals, even if they're from artists that are not well known. Any original is far better than a print. I read that somewhere today...can't remember where, but thought it was appropriate for this house where little wall is left bare.

In the interview, Bill and John mention the great deals, in particular, beautiful original art pieces that they've got at auctions. Funny thing is, I was just reading about the misconceptions of auctions today. Most people (including myself) think that they're more expensive and for a different crowd than the garage-sale-barganistas. Apparently, I've been wrong and steals are to be had at your local auction. I'll have to make it a point to go to the next Alameda Antiques Auction and see if I can snag myself a good deal!
