I found these results hidden away... though not sure if it was for all houses

"Great news! Everything sold :D

Some stats: there were 22,175 mil in total sales over 92 lots. Of those 92 lots, 26 were bought out.

Congrats to the sellers and the buyers."

Based on my totals, I surmise that Ultima Online Rares Festival Silent Auctions have likely generated more than a TRILLION GOLD in sales over the course of 26 Rares Festivals in their 10 year history. I imagine the vendor totals are not that far behind.


Personally, I think this is a great lesson in the basics of economics— supply-side and acquisitions. The market will demand what it can earn—just take a look at fluctuations in gold prices for verification of that fact. There are attempts all the time to influence the value, but ultimately it will come down to whether the buyer is willing to spend. I understand the concern about monopolizing the marketplace, but if there is no demand, then what good is it to the supplier? I am glad to see that demand is still (somewhat) healthy and I am encouraged that that the UO economy may experience a boost with the new efforts to attract the players that have left. Great work on a successful Rares Fest, and here’s to more success in the future!

2016 Pacific traders house results are on the bottom post of Rares Fest - Rares Fest Pacific 2016 Traders' House Auction

I thought I'd posted the 2015 chessie traders results; I'll have a look and see if I still have those around somewhere. (esp since it became basically part 2 of the silent auction)

2015 chessiefest live auction: Rares Fest - ChessieFest 2015 Live Auction Items Listing--Saturday 9/19/15 at 4PM Eastern

2014 izumo also had a traders auction; results at the bottom of Rares Fest - Izumo Rares Festival Traders' House Auction
