Today I'm showing off my absolutely splendifourous purchases from the farm auction I mentioned in my last post. These are big-ticket items my friends and things I have dreamt of owning since I was a wee thing. I'm justifying, aren't I?
We knew the grandfather clock was going to be auctioned and I had a slush fund I'd been putting aside just for its purchase. That was all we really intended to buy...and buy it we did. Bidding was fast and furious, but the price ended up being considerably less than its value...so that's a good thing - isn't it? I am SO happy to be able to offer it a new place to tick and chime its big old heart away.
BUT...(oh there's always a but at an auction isn't there?) there was this amazing Art Deco lounge suite, in MY colours, with drink stands, in perfect, almost-new condition! I sat on it and could not believe the seats were firm and comfy. There was no sag and no wear-&-tear. We do not "NEED" a lounge suite, BUT this was was screaming out my name.
It had to be mine.
We were dumb-founded and blown away when no-one else felt the same way...we got it for $200! One guy actually turned to me and said "What'd ya but that for?"
They even threw in a lovingly handmade crocheted blanket and two fabby cushions!
So here they are, new additions to our home from somebody else's.
Welcome my friends, I think you'll be happy here.
