Sunday Auction Sale Booty

Estate Auction Sale Booty

I just had to show you the photo of my booty from an estate auction sale I attended this past Sunday.  It apparently was the 7th auction sale that this person held this year.  I have been unable to attend any of the others.  However, this one was the final one and they just wanted it all gone.  There was so much stuff there that it should have taken 7 to 8 hours to sell it all.  It ended up being 4.5 hours.  It was fast paced and crazy.

Much of the stuff was sold by putting 4 or 5 boxes on a table and selling them for choice or for all.  So if I wanted one thing I got several boxes.  It is going to take me hours to go through to find what I want to keep and what I want to just donate.

It actually was a ton of fun.  The worst part was that it was just under 100 degrees outside, so when I was done, my face was beet red from the heat.  I think I drank over one gallon of water.

Me - Tired, hot and red faced

Me – tired, hot and red-faced

There were things I didn’t buy but wanted, like two picnic baskets that went for $2.50, but it came with about 6 boxes and an old table.  I knew I wouldn’t have any room to lug a large table.

I am so thankful it wasn’t too far from my house because my dear husband and boys came to help me haul it all away.  Not one complaint. I think I owe them big time, don’t I?

So am I crazy?  Have you ever done something like this?
