Auctions are designed to lure wealthy folks and collectors to bid higher-than-estimated value for rare collectible items. Competitive bidding escalates the value to astronomical numbers. In bargain, bidding winners can boast of possessing the rarest and/or most expensive objects existing on this planet. Throughout 2011, Luxurylaunches has kept up with the record-breaking auctions worldwide.
