One of the things that put last year's National Auction Weekend organised by French auctioneers' association SYMEV on the map was their striking promotional poster depicting an excited young woman exclaiming: "Darling I just bid!". Capitalising on a good idea, SYMEV has produced an equally striking sequel, shown here, with another young lady announcing "I've just bid and it's not over. With an auctioneer I'm reassured." This year's weekend is scheduled for November 18-19. Read more about it in this week's  ATG.
