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.

strickers auction

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…)


Auction Finds…

Monday I went to Strickers Auction. If you've never been there, it will fascinate you.

They had some really neat bulbs and flowers..

I forgot about these dishes.. and left before they got to them 🙁

See the guy with 109 in his pocket? That's 109.. see the other guy? That's Jerry Stricker.. he owns the place. He auctions the junk outside.

Rows of stuff

I love that first shelf.. but don't have any place for it.. well maybe the school room. I love that yellow lamp but not the shade. The buffet table wanted to come home with me.. but I didn't want The Man to have a cow.

Check out this car.. it's where the clerk sits.. in the heat or a/c. Pretty unique huh?

Here's Ron Stricker.. he auctions on the inside.

Setting up on the inside.

Panara Trash cans anyone?

Here's What I got…

Old Photos and Albums.

**Also under there is some pretty cool boutique purses, and jewelry.

Lenox pieces, new snow globes and other junk..

2 HUGE filing cabinets.. to file eBay junk.

Saturday I went to a auction at the Eastern Kansas Auction Barn. They had lots of great stuff there. Unfortunately they had lots of people willing to pay LOTS of money for it. I really liked these lamps.

Depression Glass…

This blue set sold for $650.00

Round Oak Stove..

See that lampshade? It was attached to a pretty cool lamp. I think it sold for

about $200.00

Germany Glasses… and decanter

I REALLY REALLY wanted this Smiley Pig cookie jar. I was the high bidder.. until someone else said they were the high bidder. It went for $50.00. Which is more than I wanted to pay for a cookie jar for myself.

Rogers 1881 Silver…

Hull Pottery. They sold this by the piece. It averaged about 40-65 a piece.

Miscellaneous Stuff.


I had to leave early to take the Youth Group to a concert… but this was probably one of the best auctions** I've been to in a while..

**when it comes to "stuff" not price.
