Location has never been simpler. This auction was situated just kitty-corner to us. I took this photo from my front yard. Which means, no packing the van -- just some schlepping back home (about six trips with my utility wagon).
There were TONS of tools, so it took them most of the day to get to the "fun stuff". I still had a case of "zombie auction brain" (hot and dehydrated) and missed some of the cool stuff, but managed to get a few things. Primarily, yard decor. When you have driven by that house as many times as I have, you've had a chance to mentally "shop" the yard a thousand times.
Red Wing Brushware planter. I've sold a ton of these in my time. I finally decided last year to start keeping them. So I added the little one to my "collection".
Vintage Western Fabric -- Selling on ebay.
Two floor lamps. I paid a whopping $1 each for them at the end of the auction.
