All of the furniture at this particular auction was in pristine condition. They're not always like that, you understand.
I thought this piece was really unique and beautiful. It was a super long bench of sorts. Check out the dovetailing detail. Many pieces like this one are made here by the locals.
And the second auction I went to wasn't as nice. They had a lot of junk there including a butt-load of house plants (what?) that had seen better days. Seriously sometimes I think a camera crew from Hoarders is around the corner secretly filming all this. Nonetheless, there were a few things there that I couldn't pass up.
I was the only one who bid on this piece. I had to. It went for $2. Seriously. It's going to be turned into storage for blankets after it gets a fresh coat of paint. We might use the bottom part as a bench in our mudroom. Two bucks, people!
I love antique chairs. This sturdy little gem was $5.
And this antique desk is for Ryder. (Bring on homeschool!) I paid $12 for it.
So there are just a few of the things you can find at a country auction. It's a fun time. Those were the first I've gone to in a while, so it was nice gettin' back in the game. We have no where to put these treasures...shoot, maybe you'll soon be seeing me on an episode of Hoarders.
