This past Sunday my dad took me to my first auction. I have always wanted to go and check one out but to be truthful, I was a little intimidated. My dad is always looking at adds in newspapers and online for tools he needs or in this case, a pressure washer. Since I was home, I decided to tag along with him to just “check things out”. There were so many great things there. Here’s a summary of what I found.
An old Necchi sewing machine…
With this cute little chair.
A large collection of Harley Davidson accessories:
A fine china set for 8:
A vintage Golden Nugget machine (of which I witnessed an old man who played the machine and won!):
And then there was this, an antique phone seat. I sooo wanted to stick around to get this for my imaginary daughter (whom I sometimes buy things for and then give to my wonderful niece Josey):
An antique cooler (which would have been a perfect conversation piece for our deck, but again didn’t stick around long enough to see this baby go).
A large amount of Xenians gathered for this event and after looking at the merchandise, I could see why.
And here are the hot items I came home with. First we have this Craftsman Miter saw that I won (yes, won, it was a battle for me) for a mere $40. woot!
And then there was this jigsaw (with laser and turn dial) that I won for $25…kaboom!
And the ticket that won it all.
I had so much fun at the auction and this was a great bonding time with my dad. Oh and Andy loved the tools I got for him.
