Auction Report - Beer and Birds and Bargains




Last week I went to an auction --surprise, surprise, right?
This was another one by my favorite local auctioneers, the Myers Auctions Service. It was a smallish auction, with only a few things that caught my eye.

 

They had some primitives, and a variety of goodies.

I did buy a couple of neat vintage beer advertising metal bar/counter displays.

 
There were lots of farm toys,



which don't interest me, and an absolute sea of Jim Beam decanters.

 

I must admit a minor liking for those, as they are made in so many themes, and some are by companies that also made cookie jars, so they have a great vintage pottery look.

Now, I know I said no more chatkes, but I couldn't resist this luscious

 

pink cockatoo decanter, to go with my other cockatoo bird figurines. 'What, another thing she collects?' you say-- yes.

And, there were these darling little gnome Christmas ornaments--

Man, I really wanted them... but alas, it was not to be-- they sold whilst I was off "powdering my nose". Whoever won them must have been thrilled to get them for such a low price... next time...

This week holds in store a couple more Myer's auctions that sound good, so I'll let you know. You never know what I'll find! [posted 3/23/09]
