If you follow me on FB, you have seen the photos of the auction Chucks and I attended this past Saturday.
It was held behind Mimi T's Antiques in Warrenton, GA.
The entire contents of an old hardware store and the deceased owner's house in Greensboro.
The building so far gone the items had to be moved to another site.
Everyone received one of these vintage signs when checking out.
I am breaking the finds into two posts.
First let me say, I could have filled an entire semi with items from this auction.
Some things like the pottery and china went for big bucks and other things for a song.
Blue and gray enamelware - pots, plates, and basins.
Red and white basins.
Blue and white basins.
Black and white basins.
I bought forty pieces.
The best thing?
Well, the price was right, but the auctioneer's wife had washed 89 boxes of pottery, china, glassware, and enamelware so everything was clean!
This was called the bullet box.
There are not any bullets in here.
Flashlights, old pen sets, and single cigar tins.
That black little telephone is actually red.
The auctioneer's wife did not wash everything in the box lots.
Three wall pockets.
A bunch of old yardsticks.
I know you china addicts deplore stained china, but for some reason I love the brown crazing on this daffodil group.
A box lot called "Frames" yielded a huge stack of old patterns.
A few books.
And the frames were actually a La Mode fashion print in an oval frame, two floral prints, and one framed photo.
Love the puppy in a basket!
Mimi T's had some items listed on Facebook Friday.

I bought two things to pick up before the auction began behind the store.
The two supports from a mirror frame.
A blue tin tile.
I cannot decide on a project for these three.
I have narrowed it down to four options.
I think they belong together.
So where was all the hardware?
There were thousands and thousands of items in this auction. We stayed until the truck was filled and left.
We arrived at eight-thirty and left at one.
The auction was not near the end.
Not one new thing in the whole bunch.
Tomorrow - THE PRIMITIVES!!!
Thank you, Kaney Auctions - it was a blast!
The auction photos are still up on their site here.
