I just attended my very first auction. I loved it, and got some great things to put in my booth!
The weekend before I left to see my Baby Boy in DC (We had so much fun, why do they have to grow up and move away!)
I went with a friend to my first auction, I was so nervous!
Twice I did just like in the movies where I unintentionally placed a bid, one time I was fanning myself and the other time I was scratching my nose! Thankfully the bid went higher and I didn't have to buy anything I didn't want!
Here's my haul......
...2 fabulous little stools waiting for "Makeover magic"
A whole box of vintage cobbler shoe forms. I was the only one that bid on these, I guess know one knows what DIYers can do with these!
Old books to alter, a couple are French and I will use those in a decoupage project
A box of assorted jars and glassware, they sometimes sell by the box, so you end up with a little of this and a little of that
An assortment of vintage linen
I love this chippy old scale complete with weights
My favorite purchase of the day was this old rubber stamp printing set, circa 1940's. I might sell it, but I am looking forward to playing with it first!
I love the excitement of an auction and learned so much. It took me awhile to figure it all out. When the bid is $10 and the auctioneer says "Do I hear $15" I didn't have to go to $15 I could bid $11. I bet that's auction 101!!!
And if you want something, don't wait, get in and bid or it will be gone before you can blink an eye!
This was my first auction and I am soooo hooked, I think this is the first of many!
