Okay, first a question. I am looking for the magazine Flea Market Style. If any of my blogger friends out there knows where I can get a copy, please tell me. I have not seen it around here, but after reading their blog, I would LOVE to have it!
My weekend plans......A Consignment Sale! I haven't been able to go to one yet this year because I hurt so bad. But, yep, with the help of pain killers, I will be attending a consignment auction on Saturday. Since they are set up with chairs (& they know me and my mom), I can sit in front where I can see and not have to stand on a hard floor for hours. If I get to hurting too bad, I can always go lay down in the truck & my mom will continue the bidding.
Now, what am I after? Well, these are a few things I have my eye on:
Some would be kept and others placed in my store.
I love pottery. Frankoma is one of my favorites and I have a hutch full! This may not all be that, but it matches what I have.
Wish me luck!!!! There are something like 14 auctions within a 100 mile radius of where I will be Saturday, so I hope all the dealers head to somewhere other than this auction. Alas, the couple that run this one are very honest and above board and that is widely known. Plus, it's their last auction of the year. I expect a good turnout (unfortunately for me) but who knows?
I'll have to check back in with you on Monday before my nerve burning procedure and let you know how successful I was. Of course, there are several more items I have my eye on from the web listing and I haven't been to a viewing yet. Mom and I will have to get there early enough Saturday that I can walk around and see everything. Since Mom foots the bill for the store items, I hope she has her checkbook ready! This looks to be a great sale.
The first weekend of December, there are two more auctions I would love to attend. Both are on the same day and both are being held by people Mom and I know. I have my list started for them too. One has a TON of oriental themed items (I love oriental) and another has a wide range of just everything!
