The Man has been to RJ's Auctions in Scranton, Kansas several times.. This was my first time there. I read they had some pallets of stuff there.. I didn't see much of that.. but I did find some interesting things.
Like Strickers Auction in Gardner.. they have an indoor auction and out door auction. I didn't see much I wanted inside.
They had TONS of matting…
See those green glasses? Those are Franciscan Madeira. I wanted those glasses. Unfortunately I was out witted.. I know you are saying.. "Out Witted? Don't you mean outbid?" Not at this auction. You see they don't auction items by the lot or piece. They auction a section of shelving at a time, and it's for choice. So when you bid, you are bidding against someone that might want a box of nails in that section, OR they want your green glasses. I let the bid go for my glasses, because I thought they wanted something else.. when they really wanted my glasses. 🙁
I wanted the brown melmac dishes.. but I was out witted on those too..
"Run out of tussin? Put some water in the bottle, shake it up — mo' tussin!"
You may or may not be a Chris Rock fan.. if you are, you know about "The Tussin" If not.. then I'll just tell you Chris' dad (Julius Rock) thought Robitussin could fix anything.. this auction had a TON of the TUSSIN..
They have riser seating.
This dude's shirt cracked me up…
Hey.. how about some old soap?
Here's what I got… embroidery pillowcases, silverware, some Disneyland collectibles from the 1960's, games (for the youth room), old rodeo brochures and some art books for #3.
