Auction Day!

Today was Auction Day at this lovely Heritage Farm House.

We were fortunate to have wonderful weather and sunshine all day!

We sorted, organized and catalogued thousands of items into 800 lots over the last week.

The sale started at 8:30 am and went until 4:30 in the afternoon. There were three Auctioneer's rotating every hour or so. My job was to be one of the "Finders". We need to find the next item to be auctioned and bring it to the front for the Auctioneers. Small or Large . . . we need to bring it! (I have a whole new appreciation for keeping an Auction running smoothly ~ much easier to sit and bid, LOL).

My husband and children came by to stay for a while and took some pictures. That's me hoppin' to it . . . no dilly dally here.

Between all the running I did manage to win 14 lots (shhhh . . . you lose count after a while, LOL).

I bought some wonderful things. Linens and Irish Crochet.

Vintage Hankies, Fabric and Net Lace

Purses, Vintage Clothing and Hats.

I 'll take better pictures of my treasures tomorrow.

It was a great day !
