If you do buy something,
the next time you look at your purchase it will have a red
dot on it, or on the wall nearby. This shows that the item
has been purchased. If it is unique, like an oil painting,
it means that anyone else interested has missed the boat!
If it is a multiple – a limited-e dit ion print or
photograph, for example – there may be several dots
by it. These will be added to until the e dit ion has sold
out. It is usual for your purchase to remain on show until
the end of the exhibition, but if you have come from afar,
you may be allowed to take it away there and then. There
is usually no problem in taking away ceramics and other small
items – these will be replaced. But don't forget to
take your cheque book – only a very few houses take
credit cards. See you at the next PV!
