I've not had the opportunity to go to many auctions lately, but, I did get to sneak away recently for a couple hours. Now, if you're buying for yourself, you can pay a little more for the items 'comin up for bid'. But, if you're buying to RESALE, you've gotta be more careful. And, sometimes that can be difficult. When someone is bidding against you, it can start to feel like a competition. And, every now and then, ya just HATE to let that other person WIN.
N E WAY.........on this particular night, most things were going a little high. So, I didn't come away with a truck load. But, I did purchase these three items.
I thought this little 3 legged table would look cute sporting a new coat of some BRIGHT color paint....to use as a plant stand, maybe? Or it'll make a nice side table.
This one? Well, it's one of those that I let my emotions run away with me.....which means I paid a little too much. But, isn't it a neat piece? I'd never seen one with the 3 surfaces like this. Again, it shouts PLANT STAND.
And, then, this old depression era china cabinet was my 'score of the night'. I got it at a great price, but it does need some work.
I love, love, love to go to an auction. It's always so much fun when the auctioneer yells "Ya bought it" and You ARE the one who bought it.
Hopefully I'll have AFTER pictures soon to show transformations of these pieces.
Ya'll come back soon. 8-)
