Joe and I attended an auction last Saturday afternoon. It was a last minute thing. We didn’t even know it was going on, until my mom called to let us know about it. We rushed right over to find it had already started 45 minutes before we got there. Thankfully we were still able to get a number.
The auction took place at an old potato house that had been turned into an anitque place years ago. I remember shopping at it a time or two, but they didn’t have regular hours so it was hard to find them open.
The place was huge and FILLED with LOTS of great things! If only money grew on trees!
My only regret was that I didn’t bring my camera. Oh well! I still got some pictures of some of our great buys!
We bought this chair for $10! It is so comfy! Gonna have it re-upholstered, though. It’s a bit musty smelling.
This solid oak child’s rocker was a steal at $20! I LOVE IT!
A lovely dresser for $30. I don't even have to re-paint it!
A stool covered in somebody’s hard work. I got this one and another together for $2.
I gave the other, not my style one, to my Aunt. She loved it!
A ladder back rocker…..$5.
Three amazing chairs for $1 each! The first two are solid oak.
I’m going to re-do the seat on the rocker. Any suggestions???
My husband grabbed all these old boxes/crates for just $2.
A small barrel….$5.
An old pie holder w/pie plate, an old wooden bowl, a scoop, a small cast iron pan, and 4 old tin molds for $15.
A great old table for $5. Lots of possibilities!
My favorite buy of the day was a box full of pewter and two old candlesticks. Just $5 for all of it!
We also picked up a couple of old twin size quilts and a really large old basket. It was a great day!
My mom, aunt, cousin, brother and sister in law also bought some really great things, as well.
We had the best time, and it was a really full day. I think we were there for about 5 hours and they still weren't finished auctioning off everything.
I am kicking myself in the butt for not staying long enough to bid on an old cast iron sink cabinet. What was I thinking leaving so soon? Oh well! We did get lots of great buys, and we lost a few too, but that's why they call it an auction.
Have a lovely day everyone!
