Well, Anne and I took off again this past Saturday, and drove to Iowa for another auction. The auction house was packed, so we were a little skeptical about how it would turn out for us. However, we managed to fill the car again!
Crates, Crates, Crates. We love them, and can't get enough of them. This auction had a ton of really cool ones.
There were a lot of old food containers. I wonder why people saved such things. Can you imagine saving a Cheerios box for 40 or 50 years? They were really cute though. I believe one bidder bought most of them. I can see why people collect them, the old graphics on them are very cool.
There were tons of vintage feed sacks at this auction. Not in the best shape, but really cute. No one showed any interest in them all day, until Anne and I wanted them. They must have known we had good taste. Anne walked away with two of the cuter ones! This being one of them.
See all that stuff under the tables? That's our stuff a quarter of the way through the auction. We filled up two 6 foot tables underneath! It may look like junk now, but just wait.
If you have never been to an auction, you should give it a try. They are a lot of fun.
