Antique Uniques Auction (FB page HERE) is fast, fun and friendly.
In order to get my hands on the blue felt Scottie with the 1939 calendar from Dominica, the vintage milk caps, and the sweater clip ...
I had to buy these.
Don't you love the tiny metal sculpture of the man on the toilet?
Large red doll trunk.
Brown porcelain door knob/lock set.
(Our dogs crack their own nuts - they are especially fond of the pecans and hickory nuts in the backyard - yes, I know they are NOT supposed to eat nuts.)
A silverplate ice bucket - I named it Beth for a friend who likes ice buckets.
Guess what? She came in Tuesday and bought it!
In order to get my hands on the crate, I had to buy all the bottles.
Not a bad deal - they are mostly from bottling plants decades gone.
Lots of casters!!!
Remember last auction I bought porcelain and iron casters? (READ HERE)
Well, I bought more.
The ones pointing left are wood and metal.
The ones pointing right are all metal.
Ridiculous you say?
NO, just MORE casters!!!
Odd assortment of different types.
I had to buy the whole tin to get my hands on the giant one.
(I would have bought them all anyway.)
The auctioneer looked at me and said, "She wants them if nobody else does."
Casters - these from a mechanic's creeper.
Never thought about collecting these.
Look at the rusty beauties.
I had to buy all of these, to get my hands on ...
A Pepsi crate - made in February, 1972.
Yes, most crates are dated.
I do love the jars!
I had to buy all of this to get my hands on ...
Another Pepsi crate.
This one is in rough shape and needs a thorough cleaning. I hope to find the date legible.
I had to buy the vintage enamelware urinal to get my hands on the Olympic Thermos picnic jug.
The jug is so clean, I could fill it with ice water and use it right away.
The urinal - not so much.
A Navy duffel bag.
A child's spade.
A large shovel head - the handle is toast.
My two favorite finds.
A large galvanized funnel with a red stripe.
A large grain bin drawer.
Thanks, Tommy and Bob and all the staff at the auction!
Y'all do a great job entertaining us on a Saturday night.
And we come home with treasures galore.
Just look at my casters!
