Auction no fun
I struck out last night at the auction. Rich got two box lots with some potential goodies in it, plus we got a nice chair that looked antique but wasn't. Only paid $4 for the chair anyhow. His boxes were mostly glassware and some old frames. I wanted some fabric and some sewing books and craft items but SOMEONE wasn't getting the hint to raise the card with our number when I nudged him. Also my fault for being a bit stingy and waiting for the next round of bidding. Lost out on two boxes that way. I will learn as I go I guess. Last night total payout was $26 for two boxes of "junk", a chair and a box of cereal. LOL! Did I tell all of you about the pan Rich found at a garage sale for $1 and we sold it on E-bay for $78? It is a Paul Revere limited edition saute pan. A little polish went along way! I told him next time we go to auction we are both getting a card with the same number on it! No problems with missing bids that way!
