Recently, I told you about selling a Monopoly game for just under $70. This particular Monopoly game was a Washington D.C. edition. When I noticed that the customer had a prominent address in Manhattan, I did a quick google search.
Turns out that this buyer is a known name in the world of art. She is particularly known in NYC and in Washington D.C. In respect for her privacy, I will not mention her name. The details provided are generic enough to keep you guessing as to her identity.
She is an author on the subject of art and a lecturer on art history. She is also known as a serious collector of modern art. Her latest book was reviewed by such newspapers as The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
She does have connections with Washington D.C. (the version of the game she bought). She serves on museum and non-profits boards in both New York and D.C.
Thought it was pretty cool to know that I have a noted customer.
