Friday Night Auction

About 2 weeks ago on a Friday night, my best friend and I decided to hit up a local small town auction, because they had advertised some really great stuff.  It started at 6pm and was still going probably well past midnight.  We left a little after 11.  I had never been at an auction that late before, but they had so much stuff and there were selling it piece by piece.

So, let me show you what I got!


A large 8 quart Dazey butter churn.


I fell in love with this jar and had to have it.
It got a little pricey, but I figured after selling the contents, I'd still make a profit.


Speaking of contents... I ended up keeping a few of them too!
The rest are already at the booth!


Another amazing vintage cooler!


Here it is among a few of my other vintage coolers.


Ah yes, and then there's this piece.
Here she is in my booth.
I wish I'd taken a before photo.
It was so utterly disgusting.


Under all the dirt and grime... original labels


I barely saved this one.


Here it is all full of vintage goodness.
Now I kind of want it in my own house.


And then there's ALL of this jadeite (and the fired-on green shakers/canister).


Lastly I picked up these pieces of enamelware, as a few were a more unusual pieces.


Then there's this box of 500+ vintage patches I got from an Instagram friend.
They're flying out of my booth at $1 each.

Not a bunch of stuff, like my normal auction hauls... but did you see how much stuff I bought on the 127 yard sale?

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Girl!!! Beautiful porcelain cabinet, and all the filling! You should think about keeping that one!!
    Love the butter churn jar and contents too.
    Good jadeite grouping too. Jeannette and Fire King. I like the graphics on the spice jars.

  4. Oh my, I would have a hard time parting with so much of this group. Jadeite would definitely be a keeper.

  7. Love ALL.OF.IT! I can't say no to cookie cutters. That cabinet is amazing all by itself but full of treasures - my heart is skipping a beat! I used to see patches all the time and passed them by. Now that I am looking for some for a project I can't find them at the prices I used to see them for - isn't that always the way?!
