Happy Thursday everyone! While cleaning this morning I realized that I haven’t shared my new vintage scale that I bought at an auction.
Charlie and I attended an auction a few weeks ago and it was the biggest auction I have ever been too. They had four auctions going on at the same time. Three of them were held outside in different fields and each field had a different starting bid. The auctioneers ride in a golf cart and go up and down the rows of merchandise. At first it was a learning experience for me and I wasn’t sure I really liked it. You had to bid quickly or you would lose out, since the items moved very fast. After losing out on a couple of things that I really wanted, it didn’t take me long to get the hang of it. I almost lost out on this scale because someone had moved it from one row to another row which you’re not suppose to do. But lucky for me, I found it and stayed right there until the auctioneer reached us on his golf cart. Needless to say, it was a bidding war at first but I won! I ended up paying $50 for it.
I now have three scales and each one is different. I placed this one on the open shelving in my kitchen.
And I have this little postage scale in the kitchen also.
I did purchase other things at this auction. I have been working on some of the furniture pieces that I bought and I’ll be sharing all of that soon.
I’m hoping we can plan another trip back to this auction again sometime next month. Next time around I’ll know how it works!
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
