The auction was Tuesday and Wednesday. I was lucky enough to work Sunday for the preview. Usually they put me in the Gallery for Sundays and I don't get to see this stuff until Tuesday ( auction day) and I never get a chance to bid.
Of course, I have to bid absentee- company rules- so I fill out my form with the maximum amount I am willing to pay. There is no chance for me to raise my bids, I have to stand by my original amounts.
There was so much at this auction too! Over two thousand lots over two days! I worked my little hiney off!
I was so busy that I didn't get a chance to listen to the auctioneer so I don't know what the hammer price was for most of these items.
Here is just a sample of what was in the auction....
This is a cute pine corner cabinet, hand painted!
A Devils Mask. Hand carved wood. There was also had a Cheetah mask in the lot.
Loved this Queen sized Pine bed. It had matching side tables.
The best red leather chairs. I really wanted these but I knew they would go high- and they did! $250 for the pair ( Totally worth it too!)
A nice set of silver and white porecelin dishes. It was all there too- plates, cups, cream and sugar set and a serving bowl and meat platter to boot!
There was also a buffet table of dark wood, a 14 inch hand carved Kachina of a Clown eating watermelon and a huge lot of kitchenware.
I bid on all of it !
got none of it!!!
Probably for the best... still putting money away for "The Deal".
Oh... haven't I filled you all in yet?
It will have to wait until tomorrow!
