I love going to auctions,
but I really love going to a farm estate auction.
All the old things.
Saturday was a lovely day for March
at about 50F with the sun shining.
To get to the auction,
we headed down the gravel,
across the blacktop,
down another gravel road lined on one side by a hill
and the other size by grazing black cattle on gently rolling hills,
across the highway,
then down another long gravel road with lots of turns and twists.
We found some wonderful things.

How's this for handcrafted?
Huge and Heavy
Old Rusty Wheels
17 Rung Ladder
This ladder came from the last farm auction.
There's also a 15 rung ladder.
A little too tall to use as a quilt or magazine rack.
I have so many other things to still photograph,
lots of old rusty metal things, a few kitchens items,
the thing I love most to find
old blue jars!
The final tally was 70 jars for the day.
Combined with the 30 I picked last week,
gives us 100 new jars to put in the shop.
So if you love blue jars,
or you're getting married and are looking for jars for your wedding,
or you just want a lovely old blue jar to hold your spring flowers,
please drop by the shop.
If you don't see what you're looking, for,
just let me know,
we have many, many things waiting to be listed,
tucked in corners,
hiding in boxes.
What treasures have you been finding?
