While At the Auction… I saw and bought…

Last night I hung out at Strickers Auction…  here's what I saw…

moon and stars cookie jar

Moon and Stars Jardinaire…sold for 35.00 with the bowl underneath.

Old games.. and doll furniture

Funny picture.. men checking out rhinestone jewelry.  ** a little note.  I can't EVER buy rhinestone jewelry here because it goes pretty high.

Some of the junk.. and the crowd

Ron Stricker, Cobalt blue glassware, auctions, gardner, Kansas

Ron selling a lot of cobalt blue glassware.

cherry mash, toliet seat, rare things, bathroom items

Here's something you don't see everyday… A Cherry Mash toilet seat.  I have no idea how this faded…(I'm not sure I want to know either)  but I bet it would have been a pretty good seller on eBay.

Inside the auction…

fancy vintage fan, fan, beautiful victorian

OoooF I love this fan.  (I didn't buy it.)

star wars figures in case

I wanted this.. I was inside when it sold.. and forgot to tell #2 to bid on it.

needlepoint, orange vintage cake plate

I love needlepoint.. this was a crate full of it.. and that orange metal lunch pan is pretty awesome too.  I won this crate.. along with all of this:

I'm not even sure what all this stuff is… but it's mine now.

old film canister

Need movies?

cool, old skinny door, with great hardware

Cool old door.  Check out that hardware!

vintage plane mobile

#2 wanted this.

refridgerator, stainless steel, at the auction

They had these 2 new stainless steel fridges.  The Man came to the auction just to bid on these.  They went WAY to high.. almost retail for them. 🙁

a bunch of head vases, head vase, old ladies head vases

Cute little ladies..

a christmas story, major award

It's a Major Award! (what movie is that from?)

Four Shabby Chic white crackle-y chairs..

I wanted this.. It's such a cool hand made sink…

Here's what I bought

Auction Buys…

More loot..

Hello shabby new dining room chairs… some of you might be counting only 4 chairs and realize there are 8 in my family.  You would be right.. BUT I like to mix my furniture up a bit.. and these will do that nicely 🙂

Silverware.. stoneware bowl.. and some spray paint for all that tagging I like to do!

(just kidding on the tagging…)


Jewelry, Vintage Linens, Dishes and Lamps.. Oh MY!

Monday night I went to one of my favorite places… Strickers Auction in Gardner Kansas.

The red arrows are things I “won”.  Boxes of old linens, a green tote of papers.

strickers auctions

This is Jerry Stricker.. he’s a pretty cool guy.. and his

knowledge of stuff is unbelievable!

These arrows show more stuff I bought 🙂  The red arrows show some

silver plate and sterling flatware.  The green arrows show vintage linens,

Franciscan dinnerware, and the farthest arrow away is vintage clothing..

super cool vintage clothing I might add.. that my friend Bettye would love.

After buying outside.. we moved inside.  Here’s Ron Stricker (in the cowboy hat)

auctioning off a few baskets.

I wanted this lamp pretty bad.. but it sold for over $100.00.

I wanted these beaded flowers.. but I just couldn’t pay what everyone else

was paying for these…

I did get these Johnson Brothers Transferware dishes 🙂

Old pins, bakelite jewelry and a cigar box of men’s jewelry.  It will take me

awhile to go through this jewelry..
