Auctions are Addictive!
A couple of weeks ago several friends and I went to an eclectic auction at Garth's, a local auction house. I used to go to auctions fairly regularly and it was fun to go again. I split the winning bid on several garden ceramic pieces with friend and sister C2 - nothing I couldn't have gotten at a garden center, probably, but for much less.
This morning I went to the first of several promised auctions on a local estate. I was interested in equipment for Emma, our Ferguson tractor. I got a post hole auger and a disc; the disc is a Ferguson no less! I paid for the two pieces about a third of what we'd have paid for a new disc, so it was well worth it. Fun, too - but the discretionary portion of the tax refund is gone now, so no more auctions for a while. Except when my sister gets here next week - then we go back to Garth's ...
