Do you watch Picker Sisters on Lifetime TV? It is a new show, I think only 5 episodes so far. The show features Tracy and Tanya. They were originally on Extreme Makeover Home Edition on ABC. I am not sure if they are on that show now or not. I have to admit, I still like American Pickers better, but this show is good to watch because these ladies are interior designers. They go throughout the country finding junk their sidekick can turn into creative furniture for their store in California. If you haven’t seen it, you should.
This weekend when I was at an auction sale, this
lovely filthy, dusty, tin piece, a roof vent it was called, came up for bid. It is about 1.5 feet tall and 2 feet in diameter. I immediately thought of the Picker Sisters; they would love this piece for some modern side table. When no one bid on it, and the auctioneer was asking if anyone would pay one dollar, I raised my card. Yep, I bought it for a buck. Now what do I do with it? It will probably sit in my husband’s garage for a while waiting for inspiration. If inspiration never comes or my sweet husband gets tired of looking at it, it will go for consignment or recycling.
So would you have bought this roof vent? Have you ever been at auction and finding yourself raising your bid card even though you probably shouldn’t be raising it?
