The first really good auction of the year was last Saturday. I find I'm a bit over zealous these first few auctions...just so anxious to buy something! This day I walked out with 4 box lots and two individual buys. I probably should have passed on two of the boxes and worst of all, I forgot to bid on a bushel basket that had sewing notions on the bottom!!! I can't rely on my memory when it comes to box lots, I think I need to start taking notes!!! Anyway, here they are....first buys auction buys of the year.This is the "after" picture on my counter. "After" I threw out the really atrocious stuff!The good stuff...Shiny Brites!A little chartreuse Pyrex with the label still in tact.A Jadeite dish.This cute cardinal figurine. Made in Japan.A Whitman's chocolate tin.A fair ribbon. Hawkeye Angus Association Senior Champion Bull.My individual buys were this patriot sheet music for $1. Also, two McCoy flower pots.On the way home I stopped at a home to look at some vintage picnic baskets listed on Craigslist. These babies were $5 each. That capped a perfect day!So, I haven't showed you everything I bought. If you want to get a really good look, click on that first picture, most everything is shown. I did keep a few things aside for posts this week. Yep, there I said it, look for more posts this week!!!
