last night's auction

I've been staying away from auctions. I have so much inventory, and business was slow through the winter--I haven't wanted to spend money. I went to one last night though, that had a lot of outdoor/garden items. Most of them went for more than I was comfortable paying, but I got a few odd things.

I got home late and so unpacked the car this morning. 

I'm always amazed when things that survived 100 years
 survive me jamming them into my car.

This is the time of year to buy vintage Christmas ornaments.
They were practically giving them away.

Three irons. Can you see the rooster on the middle one?

two oil paintings
I also got a great pastel that i forgot to take a picture of.

a mahogany gateleg table

a standalone fly fishing sign that i'm going to do something with (huh?)

an 1834 store ledger

and my favorite thing, that for some reason I don't have a picture of in its entirety:

a gypsy/circus wagon! 

Have a great weekend--


  1. Hello Jen:
    Well, this certainly is an eclectic mix. The painted wagon with the decorated horse is most unusual and will, we imagine, be incredibly eye-catching when on display.

    We do hope that sales will pick up for you now better weather is arriving.

    Happy Weekend!

  2. You have the best luck with auctions. I can see why the horse is your favorite. Wow is that unique...

    Have a great weekend...
