"It is impossible to compare figures with previous years as this was a smaller catalog condensed into a two-day sale," said LQHBA Executive Director Bruce Salard. "Certainly, things were off comparatively, but even with the COVID-19 pandemic and moving the sale location at a late date we had a good crowd both days."
