My Sunday

Saw a sign down the road on Friday that said "Auction on Sunday" I've never been to an auction. So I asked my husband if he would like to go with me...he said..."Ive never been to an auction" which really got me to laughing...we've been married 37 years this year...and we go everywhere together (except my summer trips to Calif. with Stacey) So, if I've never been...I was just sure hadn't been.lol. So we went. Got there 5 min. before it began. I got my number...I was ready...the lady said I could look around and see what was in all the boxes...so we walked and talked and poked, and lifted, reached high, squatted to see what was down low. Nothing I really wanted. I passed on a basket of lace...I would have had to bid 7.50, not sure what was in the basket. There was a box of dolls, not really what I wanted...but then there was a box of old test tubes....I really wanted those, so I wrote down the number...we went and sat down, we were asked to move( we were setting on the chairs they wanted to auction off.lol) I had my number ready...ready-set-wait...45 min. later they weren't even close to getting to my little box of test tubes. So we went home...I couldn't stand it...so half our later I drove back to the auction...I went to see my box of test tubes....ummmm, didn't see them...I missed them...darn.lol
It was actually quite fun, but makes you wonder what people want with a box of 5 ball hitches, or quilts that were soooo ugly, Hope you had a nice weekend

EEE Gads Little Miss!!!

You never before had the fun of going to a farm auction??? Well until you did you hadn't lived :) :) They can be a great day of entertainment. So for the next time:
1. Pack a really nice lunch, be sure you have lots of fluid to drink. In the old days ;) they often served lunch or the auction company had a lunch wagon.
2. Be sure you have comfy, very portable "camp" chairs.comfy shoes, dress in layers.
3.Sunscreen, or unbrellas or both depending on forcast.
4.Get there early enough to preview
5. I always packed some kind of hand work I could do to help the time go by.
6. Going with someone is always the most fun. I mean how can you joke about the wonderful treasures being bought & sold if you don't have a best buddy with you??? :)

This is auction season so if you check the classifides on Sundays the auctions will be listed along with short listings of itemd being sold. :)

Have fun and if we were closer I'd be right there with ya!!

We haven't gone to a farm auction either, Laurie, and just had our 38th anniversary on the 1st!

Guess some people will just buy anything, huh? ☺ Diane

Ah, sorry about the test tubes - would have loved to see what you'd do with those!

Well, just spending time with hubby and not getting injured (not that those two have anything in common!)it must have been a successful Sunday!

Karen ~ Cider Antiques said...

Ah . . . I luv, luv, loooove auctions. I love watching the people too. I would have bought the dolls, the lace, and the ugly quilts! LOL. Test Tubes you wanted????? What would you do with test-tubes? You've got me curious now.

You'll have to try again. Bring a girlfriend, a chair and a picnic. Sometimes you find absolute treasures :)

I'm home and catching up. I've never been to an auction like that either...sounds like fun, if you don't mind waiting (and waiting) for the item which catches your eye to come up on the block.

Thank you for your kind words on the card you sent. You'll hear from me soon.

I love a good auction, but hate waiting around for the "good" stuff.

Beth Leintz said...

Sorry you didn't like the auction. I always bring a book and a knitting project to pass the time while they auction off the ball hitches
