Auctions are a great place to go for great deals! Not only are there incredible finds, and treasure but also you are sitting among very aged and educated mentors so don't be afraid to ask questions. I always learn so much about things that are not necessarily my forte' when I go to an auction. Auctions are normally held once a month, and you can usually get the schedule by looking in your local antique newspaper, or calling an antique shop and inquiring. The are just as you would imagine them being with the auctioneer going about a mile a minute and antiques flying out the door. If you ever get a chance to attend one I would highly recommend it!
These are just a few of my finds from our recent auction. The powder box I have had before but never filled with the original talc pink powder! The old seed box has been something I have been wanting to find for almost 3 years! I wasn't going to let that one slip by. The graphics are wonderful and I am so excited to store my scrap art clippings inside of it.
