AT THE ON-LINE AUCTION I WON..................


a bunch  of crap I don't need, but couldn't live without

 Pretty retro serving pieces. The covered one is a chaffing dish.

 old toys
 12 old children's books from the 1940's and 1950's

                                        6 purses

                 DeLill purse, it's Paris!

 Tano of Madrid  Made in Spain. Maybe 1940's? Does anyone know?

 How cool is this one? Bamboo, with no markings

 Not a lot of room in there, but who cares?

 All this pottery for $6. Here are the highlights........

 Hull leaf with grapes.......

 2 pieces of McCoy. I have 3 of the planters already.

 Frankoma bowl.

 Creepy looking planter that looks like wood. ( Looks like a face to me)

Sweet blue swan.  Guess pottery isn't a hot collectable anymore (yeah) And 2 weird dolls, but those will be saved for a Wednesday.

Our local auction house started on-line only auctions about 6 months ago. I don't know if I like that better than live auctions. I do enjoy sitting at one all day, listening the the auctioneer and marveling at what people will pay for certain  items. It works like ebay, where you can set a max bid and if you get outbid they send you an email. I won 5 lots, but bid on 15 or so. I set my limit and unless I really want something, don't go over it. They also have a on site preview day, which I like, because I like to touch everything. This auction was at a house about an hour from where I live,  when we went to the office to pay for my winnings, the woman who works there told us she was going to the auction site that afternoon and she would bring everything back with her so we wouldn't have to go after work, because "I'm nice". Hell yeah, thank you!  See, it pays to be nice.


Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend


  1. What an AMAZING haul! The bags are incredible esp the bamboo one of course and look at all the incredible crockery! When I was a kid, I was terrified of dead trees ... that planter's not helping. xoxoxo

  2. My husband is the collector. I only see waht I can wear, LOl
    Love the bags, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Have a fabulous Sunday, my friend

  3. Those handbags are so pretty! x

  4. I have a bit of a thing about swan vases, and can only dream of finding one so cheap! What a fantastic bag collection.

  5. That is some seriously cool stuff you scored!!

  6. Really impressed with all the treasure! Those purses are just amazing, I have never seen a bamboo one like that, and I am seriously envious of the one with big handle. I also really like the retro serving dishes. You have great taste!
