The Saturday auction was the most interesting. They had hay rack after hay rack of smalls ready to sell, 7 racks total. It seemed that everything that I wanted to bid on was the 6th box added to the 5 boxes that hadn't sold. I would get 5-6 boxes along with the one item that I sought. I bought everything from metal shooting targets to vintage x-ray machines. The auction took 6 hours and then I started sorting.
I refused to haul home all the trash in the first 5 boxes, but I couldn't just ditch them without looking. I sorted through the mound of stuff that had accumulated next to my bidding position. I left much more than I loaded into the truck. I strapped and strapped again. I bungeed and bungeed some more.
|Sawhorses for $1 sit on top of the load. A mid-century modern bed straddled the wheel well. Wire racks of many different styles topped the load.|
|I even filled the cavity behind the bed and over the wheel well with junk. Wire wheel covers that may end up as the shades on a chandelier, a lantern and a well used mailbox.|
|I got the red chairs for $1 but will only be using the hairpin legs. There is a Wagner brake fluid machine looking like an old vacuum in the lower right and next to it is the head of the x-ray machine.|
|I bought the little decrepit Victorian stand at the top to salvage the fretwork.|
