The next Cape Ann Auction to be held March 26, 2013 6:00pm Preview from 4:00pm-6:00pm

Walt Kolenda who runs the auction is fantastic and a treat to watch. Even if you do not go to buy go to see and hear. I know I was smiling most of the night.

March 4th I had the pleasure of going to the Cape Ann Auction at the Magnolia Library
It was my second time attending one of these. I was so confused the first auction with all the number amounts going up and down and all, that I did not bid on anything.
This second time was a little different. I had a method to my madness. There was nice oak dresser I had my eyes on. I got to bid on it but once again got a little excited and lost the bid.

They had this real cute little woodpecker toothpick grabber that I would have loved to have in my possession  I did bid on that but it went up so fast I gave up and wasn’t willing to pay what the winning bidder did. I checked online and it the past they sold from anywhere from 7:00 to 54.99 dollars. I think that one went for 25.00 dollars.

Who knows, maybe I will own one someday. This one is on Ebay for 54.99. Way to high for me.

It’s amazing to me how a $3000 mint cherry table went in the low hundreds and a beautifully crafted schooner went for 330.00. Walt said the owners paid at least a thousand for it.

What I did end up bidding on and walking away with was this cute push toy. When pushed a little bell goes off at each cycle. So I did not leave empty handed after all and for 5.00 dollars…oh what a deal.

The next auction will be on March 26th,  and they plan on having them twice a month if not more.

This is also where the first auction I went to took place. It was a lot of fun too.
The other address is 17 Kondelin Rd, Gloucester Ma. They will be having indoor yard sales from this address I have been to two this winter and hope to attend many more. There are lots of treasures to be found at these sales
