When the days get warmer here in the south, but before the stifling heat of summer sets in, you can usually find an auction somewhere close by to attend on the weekends. Yesterday, I got lucky and found this one only 5 miles down the road from my house.
These larger auctions tend to draw big crowds. Usually, I can wait it out and snatch up some good buys, but most of the attendees hung in there til the bitter end; I spotted lots of dealers in this group, too.
....and an old farmhouse table. Not a lot, but I've learned by now to set prices for myself and I don't get caught up in the bidding frenzy. There seemed to be lots of that going on and more than once I raised an eyebrow in surprise at the prices being paid.
Anyway, I guess that's the fun of it all. The people watching at these events can turn out to be the real entertainment!
