At Lincolnshire bka's recent auction colonies went from between 50 quid (small and surprisingly on a deep when a nuc hive would have made more sense) to 250. However, the majority were from one breeder of very good bees and his were first off. Nothing less than 170. One chap from round my way had 3 in and none made more than 100 quid.
If you can check out the breeders reputation as this could make all the difference.
No doubt prices for old woodwork will be as crazy as ever. 28 quid for a BS deep that was falling apart!!!!
