Big Day At The Job

Today (Thursday) marks a big day for me. I came to Montreal three months ago to work at Classic Auctions as a copywriter, describing items for their auctions. I’m one of three writers who do this particular job.

And the Fall 2013 Historical Hockey Auction, which I helped work on for these past three months, kicked off today. My first auction. I’m very proud.

Samplings of the huge catalogue are below, but you can see the full 1480 items right here.

It’s hard to believe. I’ve been getting their catalogues for years and now I’m a part of things.

Below is the cover and some of the great stuff up for grabs. It closes a month from now.

  1. Hey Dennis, Wow looks like a great place to be, I envy you buddy. If you could email me the website as some of this looks interesting.

  2. Dennis, congratulations! I couldn’t imagine anyone more well-suited for the job than you. I hope you like your work and your new town! Wouldn’t it be great if the Habs won the Cup this year with you being here??

  3. Thanks Marjo. The move has been difficult and also interesting, and it seems to be getting more comfortable as the weeks and months roll by. It’s been overwhelming to say the least.

  4. Hey Dennis,

    I smell something fishy…. Low and behold the item I was going to bid ONE-MILLION DOLLARS on, is not at the auction? What happened to it? The item in question is the Roy Faubert 1963 sports coat?

  5. Did you try on Faubert’s jacket and experience the ladies swooning? It really wouldn’t be fair if you did, already without the jacket the players’ wives are demanding your comforting attention.

    Happy birthday Dennis, take the rest of the week off (except for taking care of the wives).

  6. It’s a tad big, Christopher. I guess I’ll have to grow a bit. And yes, when I put it on, women from all over Delson, where Classic is, came running. Thanks for the birthday wishes. Much appreciated.

  7. Dennis, it will fit by spring. Harder to do those long walks in Montreal winters. Add in smoked meat, poutine, DKRFSB and doughnuts and you’ll be the envy of the entire team during the Stanley Cup parade.

  8. Happy Birthday buddy, wishing you all the very best. Well after sixty years you’ve found your dream job, congratulations!
