Auction weekend

Wow. (I think I say that a lot. Oh well.) What a weekend. I have been to two auctions, one last night that I have been to several times and bought a few good things for our booth AND one all day today. The one today was the contents of an 11,000 sq ft. four and a half million dollar home. Wow! Everything was totally awesome although it is sad too because this furniture, dishes, rugs, trucks, everything from the very smallest of items to the very largest was all a part of someones home...their life. How sad. But maybe they will gain something from everything that was sold. And because of this auction, I now have a nearly new lazyboy sleeper sofa for about a tenth of what it would have cost new. I have never been to an auction like this one. So cool, such a blessing to me and hopefully to the people who sold it.


  1. Auctions can be a lot of fun... but you are right about it being sad.
    Once I bought a photobook... just because I couldn't bear the that thought that no one wanted it.

    1. Sandi, they did have a couple of those too. Your cooking trips sound awesome.
