Sold For Seven Dollars!

I went to an auctiony thing today at the local Uniting Church.
I saw this pot plant stand I really liked and I won the hot, hot bidding.
But I got all this other stuff as well - a grease gun, a grinding wheel, a christmas tree stand, some bbq tools, a tv cabinet, a table frame with wheels, some old anodized cups, a drawer(!?!) and one of those whirlpool brush wash the car things - I think that's everything - all for $7.
I got lots of fabulous treasures inside the church hall at the stalls, too!

Ararat Uniting Church, Barkly St, Ararat - 3 May, 2008.


  1. Auctions are lots of fun, aren't they. I like them. This is a nice photograph too.

  2. I hope your acquisitions were a "success" and you get years of loving use out of them. But I really like the photo - its almost like a stage play gone wrong where everyone's attention has gone in completely different directions at the same time

  3. ABRAHAM - It was my first one!
    I'm kicking myself now that I didn't snap up a few more bargains.

  4. RICHARD - oh yeah - that grease gun is going to come in handy!!
    I dunno what those blokes were looking at...
    I like the fella with the clipboard - he was very efficient.

  5. Maybe you can sell the other stuff and make your money back.

  6. KEN - I'm already working on it!
    Good old ebay!

  7. I hope that you’ve some space for all of that!

  8. I haven't been in an auctions before... I would like to see one!
    Great photo! You got the atmosphere!

    Have a nice weekend!

  9. Thinking of you, Letty. I hope you're on vacation or enjoying your auction treasures.

  10. Having trouble keeping up with your blogs m'dear - it's almost like trying to follow a money laundering trail. I couldn't leave a comment on that "wild abandoned one" 'cos it only likes blogger people or OpenID but I really liked the glowing picture of the shack
