Vintage Thursday: Auction Aftermath

I mentioned that we went to an auction last week, and boy did we come home with stuff. I've been sorting and organizing it ever since. Here's what it looked like after I'd sorted most of it:

Totes and boxes were already sorted here: some to trash, some to donation, some to store away, some for the booth, and some for eBay. And of course, there was a lot of washing up to do!

and the counters were pretty much full:
I loved this little lamp. It's staying here in my kitchen!


The clutter spilled over into the living room too...


and onto the kitchen table...


 and pretty much all over the house. I've got it mostly under control now, but guess what I did today?

Yes, I went junking again, this time with Ronda of The Pauley Principle blog! We had a great time in Gallipolis (pronounced gal-a-pole-EES) Ohio, searching out some fine treasures. Now I have more sorting to do tomorrow. The booth will get quite an infusion this weekend. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow. After I get my car unloaded, that is.


This cute spice set was an eBay prize. I bid $4 on it and won--amazingly, it came with free shipping. This will stay at my house too, mounted on the wall right beside the stove. I feel bad for the seller, though; they surely made no money at all on this and in fact probably lost on the shipping. That makes me feel guilty for getting this particular good deal.

I hope you've had some good finds this week!

You certainly weren't kidding when you said you got a lot of stuff! I like the little spice set, I'm not surprised that you're keeping it.

Most of it is for resale, Rowan--I sure don't have space for more in my house :)

Wow, that is a lot of stuff.

Kudos to you for getting most of it sorted!

It's been an interesting journey, Jai. So many things that someone kept and they end up at an auction. It's sad in a way, but the good thing is that people like me buy it, clean it up and either use it or sell to someone else who will love it. I think that's what I like best---knowing, I'm reclaiming something that was considered not worth keeping.
