auction night ♥

Tonight is our weekly auction in town. 

I used to honestly think my Grandpa was a crazy hoarder..
 he went to the auction every week...
bought weedeater upon weedeater, nails, nails, and guess what? more nails...
junk, junk, and more flat.out.junk.

However, I didn't realize it was such a big deal until I had the pleasure of going about two years ago.

It's not a big's an addiction.


The saying goes "one man's junk is another man's treasure".

I bought this desk for a whopping $7.50 over the summer.
I don't have an up-to-date picture of the finished project. 
I sanded it down & stained  it with a dark walnut.
I use it for a craft/study desk now.

These were last weeks buys. ($4 for the entire box)
I spray painted a few of these bad boys white..



and touched up the others, then added some vinyl!

{available for purchase on our website}

The week before, I brought home this wooden tray ($2).. 
I didn't have a clue what I was going to use it for at first, but I think it found a nice little home on my kitchen counter.

I have a ton of pictures to take of more of my "auction" items that I've collected over the past year!

I'll be uploading my deals up as I photograph them :)

Tonight, imagine this...

the auctioneer himself..
and here's little ole' me...throwing up my number every few minutes..

well, minus the boobage that is.
I wasn't that blessed in that category.

Alright now, I'm gone bidding!

Cheers ♥
