The Auction

Thought I would show you my auction pictures. This tent was full! You can see and hear a video of the sale of this cart here.
All this wicker and I didn't buy any! My deck is pretty full already. This table and chairs went for $20.
The owners grandfather was rocked in the cradle. This old sign was from the small town I grew up in. I don't remember the Spic'n'Span Store.
The metal sign was found in an old trunk. It was for insurance and sold for $120.
I got one pile of these old windows for a buck! The bikes sold for a dollar each. Here's Mike at the beginning of the auction.

I'll show you what I've done with all my great purchases in the weeks to come.

That looks like such fun - and I peeked at all yours & your moms treasures! WOW! Your mom must be artsy too. Looks like many projects ahead!

I started going to auctions as a kid with my dad...those were the days you could let your kids run around and not worry 'bout them...he would head for the john deere's and i would run to the flat bed wagons with the household stuff piled high....oh the memories that just flooded in....sigh
