My Auction Acquisitions

I went to my first auction, but only stayed for a couple of hours. I didn't stay long enough to bid on the cupboards. The lower cupboards I was going to bid on were a bit too rustic, more like for a garage than a kitchen. I did get a good deal on a few small items, a stoneware mixing bowl,

and some cast iron bake-ware.

First Auction of the Year

There is an auction this Saturday  that I will be going to. My husband is going to be checking out the sports cards, he`s a collector and has thousands of them. I am going to see if I can get any good deals on Depression Glass
or collectible tins
maybe a jug or a crock,
or a piece of local history

and see what treasures are hiding in the box lots. There is also some primitive cupboards I would like to look at. I want to get  new (well, different) cupboards and the one there looks like it might fit in my galley kitchen.

I hope it goes for a reasonable price and I`m the winning bidder! I`ll let you know how it goes.
