I've recently joined the board of Lyon & Turnbull, Scotland's leading auction house. I live in Edinburgh and have loved going to their fine saleroom (above), which must be one of the best in the UK. It used to be a church (by coincidence, I was watching Chariots of Fire on the plane home on Thursday, and noticed that some of the scenes were shot there before it became an auction room). It's exciting to now be part of the company, and to learn more about the process of auctioneering (having been a retailer in my former life). 

You can read more here in the Antiques Trade Gazette, and more here at Lyon & Turnbull's site. And standby for more Lyon & Turnbull related plugs for me...

Update - my quote in the press release was the Antiques Trade Gazette's 'quote of the week';

“I have spent most of my career being a dealer, but I have always secretly wanted to be an auctioneer.”
