“Who'll give me a dollar? One dollar bid, now two, now two, will ya give me two?”
I haven’t been to an auction for years, but I found an auction bill at the grocery store in Battle Lake a few weeks ago. Among the usual auction fair it listed a large collection of costume jewelry. I was intrigued (and hooked!). The auction was Saturday, and since we were at the cabin I decided to check it out.
I forgot how great auctions are, everyone’s checking out the items, pretending they’re not really interested.
Now I don’t have a poker face…so I’m sure it was easy to see me drooling over all the vintage pearl beads, fantastic vintage brooches and clip on earrings!
Even though I didn’t hide my excitement I did pretty well. Here’s my auction bounty.
I can’t wait to get started on some new pieces! I already have an idea for the pearls!
“Well, the auctioneer was goin' about a mile a minute
He was takin' bids an' callin' them out loud
An' I guess I was really gettin' in it
'Cause I just shouted out above the crowd!”
