The section quoted from the Times offers generic comments from an expert in North Carolina who's never been to this auction house. While he's right about the 'virgin' or fresh-to-market aspect, the fact is that Clarke does get strong prices for items in the $500-$20,000 range. In fact, better prices than the big Manhattan auction houses since good items here are highlighted and consignor's and buyer's fees are far lower - it leaves more cash in play for buying vs fees. But there are still bargains here. And there is certainly incredible variety here.
