What better way to spend Memorial day, than at an auction.
My daughter collected trolls when she was a child. In fact we still have a huge container of them stashed away in the closet, over 200 if I remember correctly. I didn't feel the need to buy these. They sold for $15.00
I thought about buying this for the son, but didn't think his wife would appreciate it.
We considered this wardrobe. It looks great until you get into it, too many replaced parts.
I found this ad in a 1951 Country Fair guide. I work for this cooperative. But I didn't really want the book so I didn't buy it. Not sure what it sold for.
Now this Singer featherweight was "Sweet". The auctioneer started it at $50, and went up by $10 dollar increments. At $100 he started going by 20's, that's when I stepped up. There were 3 of us going for it. Just past $200 one dropped out. I kept going until $280 and quit. The winner got it for $300, but I felt he would have kept on going.
As soon as I walked away I was stopped by a lady in the crowd. She told me she has one just like it, in better shape, and was willing to sell it. Her price was negotiable, I took her number. I will ponder it. Anybody sew with one? Have feed back for me?
Just a fun day in the country! By the way we stayed 6 hours and spent $12.50!!
