I am heading to an auction in Chevy Chase, MD, just outside of Washington DC tomorrow. I used to go to auctions all of the time when I was buying and selling before I moved to Wales. I set a limit of what I will spend on things and really try and stick to that amount.The auction tomorrow is being gaveled by sometime commenter, I Love Lime Green, so it will be even more fun than usual.
This is not a fine art or decorative furniture sale, but an Attic Auction. Here’s what’s on offer:
I love box lots! They really appeal to the treasure-hunter in me. I was at an auction once when a man wanted one thing in the box. He won the box, took the one thing out that he wanted and then put the rest of the box next to the trash can. I asked if I could look through it and found about a dozen glass flower frogs in perfect condition. I turned around and sold them for about $10 each.
