|Sometimes, we end up strolling through thrift stores or antique malls...|
|Our FAVORITE thing to do is spend the day at an auction...|
|The DeWitt Fairgrounds is a great place to set up an auction...but we were worried about the "new guys" -- and the auction was very disorganized.|
I bought a nice refrigerator for Elliott's garage for $100...
But I was trying to keep my eye on this large painting. There was some very interesting art. LOTS of art. Some of it was still wrapped in paper -- so it was hard to see what you were actually bidding on....(and you were afraid to take off the paper because then maybe everybody else would see what they were bidding on, too!)
|When the day began, this large painting was wrapped -- both front and back...eventually, people tore bits of the front paper away...kinda...|
After a couple of hours, the auctioneer finally got to the painting...and I bid. But I quit at $40. (I know -- I am sooo cheap). The painting sold for way more than that...
|So -- if I quit bidding -- how did the painting get into the trunk of my car??|
ARE YOU KIDDING ME??
|Yes, I know how lucky I am...|
