I attended two auctions last weekend. Both of them took a couple of hours of driving and a tank of gas to get there. I went to get a few specific pieces that were listed. The furniture really intrigued me and would fit well into the industrial bent that I'm headed into.
The second was this 32 drawer file cabinet. I was the underbidder at $525.
Then there was this homemade rotating hardware cupboard. The base is fantastic. Again I was the underbidder at $745.
So the long trips were basically unproductive. Hours on the road, dollars through the gas tank and none of my desired items in my truck for the trip home. Interestingly my week was productive not at the live auctions, but online.
The most interesting piece is this glass taxi cab light. Again, it will probably be on my shelf for a while rather than in either of the shops.
Not many auctions to attend the rest of this month, but I'll keep searching on-line for the strange items that I like.
