Yes, some things are worth getting up early for on a Saturday morning. I was out the door by 5:30 to shop at the "ChiPPy! ShaBBY!" sale in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. A line formed well before the 7:00 a.m. opening, and the two gals next to me were up at 3:00 a.m. ,(!), to drive down from Upper Michigan for the event! This chair at the gate gave just a hint of what was to come.
Jeanine's blog for more. I came home with a big old barn key and a large tin vase that I dearly love.
Rushing off from Cedarburg to get to an auction in Franklin, my hopes were high. When I pulled up it certainly looked promising.
As it turned out, there was a lot of stuff but little that was of interest to me. Condition was poor on most of the vintage items. This birdhouse was quite charming; it sold for far more than I was willing to pay.
I hope that your weekend was fun, that your finds were fantastic and that the coming week will be a pleasure for you!
