Trip to an Auction....

This past week we went to an auction, we haven't been to one in years, it was very interesting.  Most of what was there was way above and beyond our budget.  We did manage to buy this pine sawbuck table, not sure of the age, but it is made of old wood, and has great patina.

 We saw this piece of pottery sell for
$20,000. When the bidding ended, everyone clapped.
We saw a rifle sell for $4400, there was an older lady sitting next to Herb who bought a piece of pottery for $3200, and she told him she would have paid much more, I saw her after she paid for it and she was smiling from ear to ear, and hugging on to that piece of pottery like a baby. I enjoyed it, even though we were way out of our league.
