BanksI love the auction site Paddle8.

Paddle8 brings great art and design together for sale. On the Paddle8 site, you can browse the art at your leisure as if you are walking through the finest gallery or auction house.

The reason I like it so much is that you can see some great works by noted artists and not feel like you are brown suit at a black tie event. Meaning, in the past I have arrived at live fine art auctions only to feel out of place with the clientele these events tend to attract.

Anyway, Paddle8 allows you to browse and see what the current bid is for the fine works and sometimes you may be surprised that you can actually afford a great piece of art.

About Paddle8: “Paddle8 is the auction house for the 21st-century collector. We give a global community of passionate collectors unprecedented access to online auctions of high-caliber inventory. We’ve streamlined the collecting and selling experience, combining the excitement and expertise of an auction house with intuitive technology.

I just may be able to score my very own authentic Banksy.
