Auction "Sale-ing"

Have you ever been to an auction sale?  If not, you need to go to at least one in your life. They are fun, frustrating, boring, and exhilarating at the same time.  Let me explain.

Fun because it's a DIY'ers blank canvas... it's like craigslist, but all in front of you at once!
Frustrating because people outbid you.  And it takes long. And people get annoying. And sometimes you get home and ask yourself, "why did I bid on this again?", or "dang it, I wish I woulda bid on that!"
Boring because it can take over 10 hours, and 9 hours and 48 minutes are spent waiting for the things you want.
Exhilarating when you you are in a bidding war and WIN!

Here were some items from this past weekend's auction sale. Is this a DIY'ers/collectors/antique lovers/decoraters dream or what?!

There were hundreds of awesome finds. I can't wait to share my upcoming projects with a few of our new goodies!
