The Good For Nothing Seventh Miss Chapter 31
Qi Meng looked at Shen Yanxiao's plain clothing and suddenly felt nervous. Even though those luxury goods could fetch a high price individually, the amount was still pretty insignificant at the Qilin Auction House.
However, the amount of those goods was the game-changer. There were at least a hundred of luxury items there, and all of those could fetch a pretty significant amount.
Where did the little fellow get all those items from?
Qi Meng had his suspicions, but he did not reveal it. The people at the Qilin Auction House would never question the origins of the items that were commissioned to them. Furthermore, he had also seen many plainly dressed customers who owned many expensive treasures. Their simple appearance was made to fool other people.
"That's all I have. Please have a look and see if they are suitable." Shen Yanxiao could not determine the system of values in that world, and she was also unaware of the standards that they had at the Qilin Auction House. So, she could only rely on Qi Meng to appraise those items. If they were unwilling to accept them, then she would need to separate them into smaller batches to be sent to other auction houses. Besides, she had to take extra care to avoid the Vermilion Bird Family's attention. If that were the case, then not only would she get the money she needed slower than her expectations, but she could also run into other problems as well.
Qi Meng nodded, then called for a few goldware and jewel appraisers to review the items that were scattered on the ground.
As expected, every single goldware and jewel in that pile was of the highest quality. Qi Meng had only seen items with similar quality within the Qilin Family's main house.
"These items are very valuable, but there's some abrasion on these few pieces of jewels. It doesn't seem like an item by itself, more like part of a complete set." The jewel appraiser said as he held onto a few thumb-sized jewels in his hand.
As she looked at the jewels in his hands, Shen Yanxiao silently recalled the scene when she removed those jewels from Shen Jing's jewelry box.
"Can these items be auctioned off here?" It was better to overlook the unimportant details. She cared more about whether the Qilin Auction House would take those items off her hands.
As the person-in-charge at the Qilin Auction House, Qi Meng could, of course, quickly make a rather accurate estimate for that batch of items.
If they were to measure the standards of the items, it would barely meet the Qilin Auction House's criteria and this was not a business they could not do without. However, it was not something he would consider at that time because he was more mindful of the influence and power behind that young lad.
Not many people could do what he just did, and that was to produce so many expensive and luxurious items in one go.
After he weighed the pros and cons of the situation, Qi Meng smiled and said, "Yes, these can be auctioned here. If you can spare the time, we can sign the agreement immediately. Then we will arrange for the auction as soon as possible."
"Very well." Shen Yanxiao nodded.
She had to admit that the Qilin Auction House was extremely efficient. A few moments later, Qi Meng had signed the agreement with Shen Yanxiao. The contents of the deal were pretty straightforward. The Qilin Auction House would be responsible for the auction of the items that Shen Yanxiao had entrusted to them, and they would collect ten percent of the profits while the rest would be paid to Shen Yanxiao.
After they signed the agreement, Shen Yanxiao did not intend to collect the profits directly. Instead, she discussed with Qi Meng to see if he could use the Qilin Auction House to purchase a certain amount of low-grade demonic cores on her behalf.
"Are you sure you wish to exchange that money for demonic cores? According to our current estimates, if we use all of your profits from the auction to buy low-grade demonic cores, you'd probably end up with more than a thousand of them." Qi Meng thought that he should warn the young customer about the considerable amount of demonic cores that he would have procured. Furthermore, Qi Meng knew that there weren't that many uses for the demon cores and rarely would anyone buy them in large quantities.
