You all have such good taste!

Today we auctioned off the items I highlighted yesterday and let me tell ya- you all have good taste!
The Oak bookcase was actually in the Eastlake style and the final bid was...

................................................................well, I'll tell you in a minute...

First- the sweet little horse statue. That went for $40.00. It was a little higher than I thought it was going to go for, but it was nicely made, so the money is right on that.

Next the pine bed. Other single pine beds today went for $10 and $20 bucks- but the bed I highlighted yesterday was unique and in a style you probably won't see in Ikea- so that bed went for  $130.

I missed the selling of the Crap Table- I was busy actually working when it sold (drat!)

An old wooden monkey sold for $600! It was really old and may have been part of a carosel a one time- Everyone wanted it. I didn't get a picture of it before it was wisked away!

So that leaves the Eastlake Book case.

It was one of the highest selling items in the whole auction at...

Drum Roll Please....



$950.00!!!!!!

WOWZA!

But the guy that bought it told me he was determined not to leave without it. He held out and he won! He also bought a huge double bed head and foot board in the same style for about $400.

So it was another sucessful auction and now we must all wait for one more month before we can treasure hunt there again.
But I am sure it will be worth the wait!

Well you picked them. Let me tell you after a day spent anylizing medical malpractice cases, what a refreshing treat this blog is.

Auctions are evil..lol! I'd be all too tempted to bring all KINDS of stuff home, and wind up broke instead of with a paycheck.

Love these posts though- it's always neat to see what is out there!

Awesome...for $40 that little horse would have definitely come home with me.

Looks like you have a pretty fun job. If it was me, I'd never make any money. I'd be spending all of it at the auctions.

That little bed is very cute. I can't help but wonder how big your LR is if you'd have room for a crap table. LOL
