July 21, 2009Slideshow from Recent Estate Auction
Here are some great photos from an Estate Auction that Tom and I went to this past weekend in Bay City. We had a great time, and we only got lost twice on the way out to the auction. But it was ok, because we stumbled on the neighborhood that had all the great vintage awnings in it!
The auction was fun. It had a good number of mid-century items that went for pretty cheap, and it had some great Mid-Century Modern eye candy. Check out the slideshow at the end of the post for everything we didn’t end up getting. We only spend $8, and got two really cute things for the house.
The first is this great vintage blender. It looks almost as if it was never used, and when you plug it in the little guy works like a champ. I love the chrome accents and the clover shape of the blender itself. Tom was particularly excited about this one.
And then we have my purchase, which so far no one likes but me. My little birdie planter.
Okay, so it is a little scary, but I love the way it looks in the pink bathroom. This sweet little guy was only three dollars, and I totally love it. The only catch was…well…it came in a huuuuuuge box of knick-nacks. In fact, for three dollars we also got all of this:
And this has already been picked over and stuff given away to friends! There was even more. Gah. I have to get listing and see if I can get rid of some of this stuff before Tom kills me!
In the meantime, check out some of the other goodies from the auction. There were lamps, kitchen stuff, Heywood Wakefield/Woodite chairs, and a Maytag wringer washer!
