Auction Fun in December

When I was at 1515 for the Holidays I was able to go
to the weekly auction with my friend.
We love to go and spend the entire evening.
We stay till the end when tables go for $1.

Here are the vintage items I picked up for a
total of $14!

My favorite find of the night

Two Pyrex bowls with lids in mint condition
One is yellow and one is print and in red and yellow...great for the kitchen at 1515
The pattern is "Friendship" and I paid $6 for the both of them.

I was really happy with this vintage celery dish

Perfect for Christmas since the design is holly berries
this cost me $1. No one else bid on it?

Some knifes never used in the box
In the box was also a cast iron little truck I gave to my
brother for Christmas.

Then in a box she opened my friend found these and could
not wait to tell me to bid on them.
All the little angel bells say Merry Christmas in another language,
this is the French one.
I got the entire box for $1,

Then to round out things.....
A Plat book of Edgar County IL
I love genealogy and was thrilled to pick this up for $5.
My cousin and I have been trying to figure out where
my GGGGrandmothers farm was.
We were able to find it on the plat map,
so very happy!

So much fun for so little money.
Great people watching...seems the
things I think are garbage sells and
the things I like go fairly cheap...thank goodness!

I only get to go about 4 times a year since it is on
a Tuesday night.
Can't wait to go again.

Wonderful deals and certainly lovely treasures. Love the pyrex bowls. I have a couple and I love using them. The little Christmas Angel Bells are adorable ;-)

Rebecca said...

Great stuff!!!!! Wish I liked auctions, they make me so nervous and sometimes people get mean at them, so I don't like to go. Sounds like you have a great time though.

Martha said...

What great finds -- love those vintage Christmas girls! Can't believe that you only paid $14 for ALL of that! Good job!

I am so jealous of all the items, especially the angels. I just love auctions. ♥

Debbie said...

I had the friendship pattern when I was first married....many years ago!
The celery dish is gorgeous!!!!
What fun for you, Ann.

Lynn said...

Ann, I have never been to an auction like this but it sounds like so much fun. The pyrex bowls, the little angels bring back warm memories as my mother had both. Her angels just had French wording but those adorable little faces and outfit were the very same ones. Such a delightful time for such a little bit of money and so much enjoyment. On our retirement budget I would love to find an auction like this. Happy New Year and may 2012 bless you abundantly. Thank you for stopping by to vist my blog so often. Blessings, Lynn
