What does it mean 'to snap up a bargain'?

I came across it in the text about the unusual paintings:
‘It’s a good moment to snap up a bargain; because it looks like the art world is in for a bit of a surprise.’
Thanks in advance!

    To ‘snap up a bargain’ is an idiom tha means to buy something at it’s current ‘low’ price before the item is gone or before the cost goes up.
    In the case of the paintings you were reading about, I suspect the writer was advising to buy these paintings now at this low price because very soon the art world is going to go crazy over this artist and then the value of the paintings will go sky high.
    Snap up these paintings at this price before this artist becomes crazy famous in the artworld! Buy them now while the prices are still low! 🙂

    Snapping – Quick, fast, abrupt.

    Simply to buy/get it really quickly… it has connotations that the object is in high demand or is a good bargain.
