Aspiring auctioneer Myles Brown only got a couple chances to show off his talents pitching a sale, but still the 9-year-old made the biggest sale of the night at Wednesday’s baked goods auction.

“I saw my dad doing it and I thought I could do that,” the boy said, noting that he made his first attempt at selling at age 7 or 8. 

“I like it because you get to meet new people and stand in front of the crowd and show off your talent.”
