New record with a concluded deal: a mirror bought for € 150 in a garage sale sold for € 127,000

In “Business concluded, the great challenge”, broadcast on June 8 on France 2, spectators were able to attend an exceptional sale. And for good reason, Coralie, a beginner second-hand dealer, went to the show in the hope of selling a mirror that she had unearthed in a garage sale and for which she had to pay 150 €. The object had been estimated at 6,000 euros by Enora Alix, Coralie hoped for her part to get at least 3,000 €. An amount very far from the account since the “mirror-sparks”, created by the artist Line Vautrin, went for 127,000 €.

It is Benoît Charraudeau, owner of an art gallery, who acquired the said object. “I hadn’t set a precise price for myself. I really wanted it. I will be able to exhibit it in my gallery “, he confided to our colleagues from Télé-Loisirs. During the show, he had also confided that Madonna could be a potential client.

For this bonus, shot from the Air and Space Museum at Le Bourget, 19 buyers were put into competition in the form of a battle. The latter therefore did not hesitate to raise the stakes. This new sale shatters the record for the issue held by Caroline Margeridon which amounted to 21,000 euros.
