We arrived just as the auction began so we worked our way through the crowd checking out the items for sale. I listened to the autioneer as we looked and I was able to catch some of what he was spilling into the microphone. There was really only one item that held any interest for me and not something I couldn't live without. We watched the bidding for a few more minutes and were just about to leave when one of the helpers laid her hand on the item I had noticed. So out of curiosity we waited to see how that went.
Next thing I know a little voice said, "bid once just for the practice" and my card went up. I heard it's a good idea to know how high you are prepared to go before you start bidding. But prepared I was not!
Lucky for me mine was the only bid. My purchase cost me $30 and as the auctioneer said. "You got a real deal. The hardware alone is worth that."
There are six lion pulls on the piece and since I'm a Leo by birth I thought it was appropriate that the piece went to me....that and the fact that no one else wanted it.
No, I didn't need it but I have a feeling I will find a great use for it.
You see the top flips up!
Yes, there I am reflected in the garage door as I lean on the car to get a picture.
