The Auctioneer Bene Raia
- Home Base: Massachusetts
- Day Job: Auctioneer
Bene Raia joins MARKET WARRIORS with a background in auctioneering and architecture. When she’s not treasure hunting with her fellow MARKET WARRIORS pickers, Bene owns and operates her own auction house and also enjoys sculpting and painting in her spare time. A mother of four, Bene’s favorite collectibles are antique dolls and toys. “Basically anything that relates to how children lived and played 100 years ago is very interesting for me. I tend to compare those children with mine and I find the similarities amusing and the differences thought-provoking.” Bene is originally from New York State by way of Enugu, Nigeria, and now lives and works in Massachusetts.
"The auction business is all about buying and selling which, as someone that loves to follow objects and their history, is a dream come true for me."
