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....



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!

This months' found treasures.

Auction Day!
Actually I've been working this month in more than one auction. The House had it's Gallery Sale on Sunday, an Ethno-type auction with many pieces of African, New Guniea,Alaskan and Native American art on Monday and the Annex auction yesterday. I was pretty busy but I managed to get a few pictures of todays( Wednesday) auction items.

Isn't this guy cute! He's made of metal and mounted on a piece of Onyx stone.

This single bed is made of pine and looks like it was made around the turn of the last century for a child. It is clear unpainted wood, with ball feet. Add slats and a mattress and wouldnt it be cute in a kid or a guest room? ( ignore the tables in the middle of it- room is at a premium around here!)

Yep, you are seeing this right! A Craps Table! If I could buy this and put it in my living room, I'd be the biggest 'hit' of the neighborhood! How funny would that be? That is a mink coat lying across the side of it, but it didn't fit me- too small!

I really like this closed book case. It is early 1900's Walnut and has inset burl pieces in the decoration. The glass is original and it has one drawer at the bottom. It's in great shape! I could really use this in my house but it is such a nice piece it will probably go for a lot of money!

This piece isn't very old, and some of it is veneered, but it is solid and useful. A Great table for a flat screen or for behind a couch. It will probably go for about $50.
There are some nice waterford glasses going up today, but I wasn't able to get photos of those.
So I'm off to my last day of work.
 Which one of these did you like best?
