This is a small portion of the items moved out this past week.
Does not include the truckload I sent to the thrift shop.
Three large wire golf ball baskets.
Except for the few we use around the house, these are the last of the 150 baskets I bought when a local golf range closed.
They were great sellers in the booth, and I wish I could find some more.
Unfortunately, driving ranges are using plastic baskets now.
At one time I created gift baskets.
I donated several large garbage bags of excelsior, Easter grass, and ribbon.
The paper twist I decided to sell in the booth which led to customers wanting to know how to use it which led to demonstrations.
I probably should have just donated it!
This project grew from discovering a box of pint canning jars, a huge canister of buttons, and a bag of wooden spools.
Put them all together with a purple torn cotton ribbon ...
And a nifty little stamped tag.
I found a box of china and ceramic items from an auction in 2005.
I remember buying them.
This particular auction I loved attending because the auctioneer was FAST!
Every Friday night for several years.
Robert would hold up an item and start the bidding at $50 and then say $1.
He did that auction talk for about thirty seconds before putting the item over on a table.
You had to bid as FAST as he was auctioning.
Once the table was filled, he started bidding on the table - starting at $1.
You had to buy the entire mess of items, box them yourself and get them out of the building as FAST as you could.
I had lost out on some small wooden benches.
I was not FAST enough to get my bid in.
So I had to buy the entire table to get the benches.
Luckily most of the items sold.
But I never even attempted to sell these.
Do not even know why I kept them.
Back then you could not give an owl away.
I sorted through the box, donated some and have these to sell.
I miss Robert and his FAST auction style.
Back into the depths of Horror Monster.
