we went to a auction today and bought a lot of things for the house. crystal glasses. crystal vases and bowls and lots of figurines lge and sml all collectors items I can;t believe I got them all so cheep we even bought a couple of trains for a friend who is mad crazy about trains and has so much memorabilia from when he was a child he even has a badge from pre war and guess what one of the trains was the same as badge they got when the queen used the train to go from one castle to another. when we left him with them he couldn't get the grin of his face. we also gave his wife one of the figurines we bought as it was 2 cats and I got 5 boxes of them mostly different for only $20.00 and some were for sale at $65.00 each what a find for a cat lover,
BUT the piece de resistence was the machines he let me buy for 40 years I have wanted a heavy duty industrial sewing machine and he told me to buy it so I did, a Bernina industrial with table for $445.00 plus an industrial overlocker with table for $299.00 we also bought another machine for the friend who helps us for his wife for $345.00 plus a king sizebed and mattress for under $500.00. we are also waiting to hear whether our bids were accepted for some kitchen cupboards and a fridge freezer. retail it is worth $2400.00 and we put in a bid for $900.00 so hopefully we will hear tomorrow that we have won. I go hope so the cupboards will go into our bus with a gass stove so we can have a kitchen till our house arrives. I am so over living the way we are at the moment with no kitchen except a bbq and wok burner and sink and that is it. no cupboards to put anything in and dust gets over everything, BUT more good news we only have a month left before we get a house.
