When they got there, they were told that the auction would last till at least 8:30 p.m., with no loading of any purchases till all the bidding ended, so they settled in for the duration. At 6:30 p.m., I heard from them. They had bid on all the lots they wanted and were headed out for dinner, in the hopes that they could load up and head home as soon as they got back to the auction house.
I had a couple of specific pieces of furniture I wanted them to try to get for me, but they were bid up pretty quickly. My daughter was hoping to bring home some art that was estimated to sell for $300-500, but it went for closer to $1500, so she came home empty handed too.
My SIL won several lots for the store, and I'll be showing them to you in the next few days. Till then, here are some of the pieces taken home by lucky winners...maybe us, maybe not.
