Auction here last Saturday.  Probably the largest, dirtiest, most varied auction I've ever seen.  Started at 9 am and was still going with the die-hards after 9 pm. Two auctioneers.  It was the belongings of a true hoarder.  The smell was terrible.  I got a primitive stool, a bird bath shaped like a scallop shell, a yellow ware bowl, some books, a pair of old shoes with shoe buttons, 3 old wooden bowls and a whatsit gardening tool.  I did not stay til the end as I had animals to take care of and supper to fix.

I love antiques!  Here's what I had sent back from my folks home in CA.  I remember when we got it in the late 60's.  It's part of my childhood, and very special to me.  I saved a place in my home just for it.

Love going to auctions like that, Marsha.  It's more likely one will find unique items at lower prices. I also like going to estate yard sales being run by family members. Ones that are being run by professional estate sale outfits tend to mark up things. Although, occasionally they slip up......Once I saw a clutch of vintage ladies hats and I grabbed them for a couple dollars each......Another time I bought some old books that turned out to be collectible too.

That fleur dlis on the door is unusual.
