Auction News with a Contest if you Choose

Last Saturday I went to an auction in Ottawa, Kansas.

Look at the art deco movie theatre located on the main drag. Cool, huh?

Here’s City Hall. It’s beautiful. I may have caused a bit of alarm when I reached my camera out the window while I was driving to take this photo. The car next to me slammed on their brakes…..sorry, maybe I need a bumper sticker that says, “CAUTION BLOGGER AT WORK…..FREQUENTLY SNAPS PHOTOS WITH NO WARNING”

Now for the goods.
Basket full of other baskets… $2.50 I’m going to line the basket with linen and use it as a laundry hamper.
Crock….$15.00 I’m a sucker for old crocks. I think it has something to do with my pottery fetish, what a crock.
Sled….$12.50 All farm houses need an old red sled on the porch, don’t they? Yes.
Rug……$30.00 This is the item I went to auction in hopes of bringing home. I was not going to lose the bid, and I didn’t. Did I pay too much? Maybe, but it has all the right colors and I really liked it, so there.

Chaffing dish……$ ?????

Wanna guess? Should I have my first contest ever? Yes? I, uh, don’t have a prize, but um, uh, how would, um, one of my pieces of pottery do? They’re not all bad…really. They make great coin holders and pencil cups and jewelry storage and dust magnets and space clutter and, and, and, well that’s about it.
So, guess if you want to, but don’t feel you have to, it’s not a big deal, just do what makes you feel comfortable. Gah, have I ever told you how uncomfortable I am asking for comments? It’s the same way I feel about asking people to help me….it makes me feel…bad, icky and in general not good. Yes, I have a problem.
So, if you want to, take a guess, but you don’t have to, it won’t hurt my feelings, peace and love and rainbows and daisies. The first person to guess correctly wins. I’ll post pictures of the pottery that you may choose from, dust out your curio cabinets and make a space for an April original.
Oh, and the dates on the photos saying they were taken in 2005, well, you know, I’m a bit slow when it comes to programming electronics.
