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.
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.
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

I would like to know if you could mention a wonderful upcoming community event on your website. It is for a great cause. As you probably know, The Magnolia Library and Community Center is a unique community-run center. It serves and is run by volunteers living in Gloucester . The show is our main fund raiser for the year. We would really appreciate it if you could mention it on your website. Here is some information on the event.
The 2011 Magnolia Library and Community Center’s 34th Annual Art Show and Sale will be held July 8-10. This professionally-judged show is an excellent opportunity to acquire special art at a great price. The over 250 works of framed and unframed art by North Shore artists and beyond includes oils, acrylics, watercolor, photography, sculpture and mixed media. Sale proceeds benefit the artists and the Magnolia Library and Community Center. The event kicks off on Friday July 8th with a champagne reception for artists and the public from 7-9pm. The show and sale continues Saturday & Sunday, July 9 & 10, from 10am-4pm. Artists wishing to participate and/or for more information can visit http://www.magnolialibrary.org.
Thank you and best regards,
