I think I am SERIOUSLY addicted to a local auction house! But - in my defence..I have been able to purchase things like this used child's Western Saddle (for my Grand Kids) for $20.00...
..and this brand new Breyer horse in the box for $15.00..
..and this lovely framed antique print for $60.00
My daughter's have also benefited - Joy recently purchased a spotless beige colored sofa for $50.00 (was willing to bid up to $180.00) and a beautiful solid wood coffee table with cabinet doors for $70 (was willing to bid up to $200.00)
Emily and Daren just bought a huge house since they are transferring to Miss. (Daren is in the Air Force) They sold most of their furniture when they sold their last house and were in need of a large sofa.. They found a slightly used sectional. It has 7 or 8 pieces. One piece has a double fold out bed and 2 pieces are recliners. Are you ready for what they paid for it.... $20 bucks... TWENTY BUCKS...
I have also purchased many small silver items, Royal Copenhagen Soup/Pasta set $40.00, outdoor Iron table with glass top $20.00, set of 9 etched antique glasses $25.00..and the list just goes on and on..
Honestly.. I think I have been using this auction as my RETAIL THERAPY!
