Lots of "Eye Candy"

We went to a 4 o'clock auction today in Osage county. We arrived about an hour early knowing it was a huge sale. I walked up and down the isle in amazement. The collection that the owner had was unbelievable. I was so taken by it all that I really took very few pictures. 


6 nesting bowls, I really think there might have originally been 7.  So amazed they survived this long. 

  Red wing!


Lots of Western stoneware.


 Pottery, pottery, and more pottery.


Children's toys, most all kitchen stuff!


Spice jars and salt and pepper shakers.


 Beautiful old jars, coffee jars in many sizes too.



Granite ware, and it wouldn't all fit on one picture.


Would you believe we left before the bidding even started? I mean there was no cast iron for us to buy. There were dealers walking around, like I had never seen before, either with tablets or thick books with price list of antiques. 


I no longer buy just because I like something. I need a purpose and/or a place to put my treasurers. So all this was just eye candy today!


If you'd like to see the auctioneer's web site, he has pictures too. http://moffatauction.com/012812.htm

Wow! I wish I could have been there ! I dont think I have ever been to such a great sale! BTW the stoneware pitchers with white with blue windmills. Do you know anything about them? They look like one I picked up at a yard sale this summer.
