-- Dryden, Michigan Professional Auctioneer and Ringman Ray Krakowski will be featured on History Channel's new series "SOLD". The show is filmed on location in Osage Beach, Missouri at Bryant Auctions. The auction house does weekly auctions and this show chronicles the action. While Ray is a freelance ringman and auctioneer his appearance is in regards to his lifelong passion of collecting. "I'm first and foremost a collector and picker, that is what gravitated me to the auctioneer profession. When I am not working at an auction I attend auctions. I attended Rick Bryant's auction and consigned something from my collection to be sold". Ray attended the Lake of the Ozarks auction house last fall during the production of the series. There is a total of 10 episodes to be produced from the filming.
"SOLD" is the newest show in the History Channel's line up of top rated reality shows in the tradition of American Pickers and Pawn Stars. The series premiered April 11, and the episode with Ray is scheduled for April 25.
