Home run at the auction!!!

I really wish I could say that I hit a home run at the auction but the stars aligned for someone else and I'm so jealous thrilled for her!!!  Remember my friend "Diane" (remember she was so embarrassed about her before she wanted an alias!) who gave her dining room a fabulous makeover with a ton hard work and a lot black paint?!?!  Here's a reminder:

Well she emailed me saying she was going to an auction up in Connecticut where she lives and they had TWO card catalogs on the docket.  I was so excited for her and sure that they would be going for hundreds and hundreds of dollars.  Well apparently they haven't gotten the memo in CT that card catalogs are
 like the 8th wonder of the world these days!  She got this beauty for $140!!!!! 

I can't wait to see what she does with it!  It's so pretty she wouldn't even have to paint it if she didn't want to.  Such a score!!!  So happy for you "Diane!" 

And the lesson of the day would be...
go to more auctions!!!


  1. SO JEALOUS!!!! I have been dying for one, too!

  2. Wish I lived in Ct - or had a friend who did.

  3. Love it. At least it's going to someone who will appreciate it.

  4. Love it! It makes me so sad that card catalogues are obsolete. I loved them (and had an odd love of the way they smelled ...)

  5. Where was the auction? I live in CT and would love to know...

  6. In the fast-paced development of the property auction industry, but I still experience a lack of knowledge when it comes to buying or selling property by auction. Most of SA buyers and sellers do not know how to work in the auction process, although the mechanism is the fastest selling bank possession of the property before the sale.
