Puzzles for Sale 2020

Our 2020 Fall Sale ended 10 pm, EST, November 1, 2020. It was by far the busiest sale in my 25+ years of doing this.  At least 140 bidders participated breaking the old record of 115, submitting many hundreds of bids.  Not only did all 127 puzzles sell (as has happened the past 20+ years), 119 were sold by overbids and only 8 by list price bids.  Meanwhile, my spam blocker moved into spam about a half dozen emails  and I spent Monday morning after the sale closed registering and posting their bids which changed the winner on several puzzles.  All puzzles have now been paid for and shipped out.by USPS and, presumably, arrived at their intended destination.  Three puzzles were misplaced during the sale, but have been tracked down and are now in the hands of their winning bidders.  One customer failed to notify me he had moved, so the puzzles went to his old address.  He was able to track down the package at his local Post Office which had failed to notify him it had attempted delivery.  Boxing up the puzzles was primarily done by my two sons, Lincoln and Conrad, which helped a lot!
Now I must get back to restoring more puzzles for my Autumn 1921 sale.  We have the supply and the demand is certainly there.  All it takes is my time and energy which seem to diminish each year!
