My friend, ILOVELIMEGREEN works at S&K and was kind enough to send me some images of what’s on offer.  I’ve got my strategy planned out… including a fail-safe way to make sure I don’t buy too much! 

Remember, the sale is all weekend and you’re sure to find a treasure! I’ve been to their auctions before and it’s been worth it to attend!


  1. The jawbone thingie... is that a spoon rest or a wine bottle holder? In any case, it looks RAD!

  2. Wouldn't Toad be beautiful in that blue patch jacket?


  3. Goodness! Some great things going on in your neck of the woods! I love the little dog sitting next to your coffee pot!!! Have a great weekend!

  4. I want that teapot too!
    Looks like a great sale!

  5. Wow, I'll fight you for that coffee pot! Love it.
    A tent sale sounds a great idea. Auctions can be a little intimidating, especially if you have an itchy head :-)
    Thanks for following

  6. PS:
    If you are unable to getacopy of BBC H&A, I can probably send you one.
    Take Care

  7. Auctions are a lot of fun, and watching the bidding on various treasures is the best part. I have scratched my head at auctions and never ended up with anything I wasn't bidding on. The auctioneers and the assistants are WAY smarter than that ... just try not to make eye contact and nod. :)

    The greyhound/whippet figurine would fit perfectly around here.

  8. Can you tell me more about that teapot pattern. I recently purchased a set of espresso cups in that pattern!
