Jillian Goes to a Country Auction

Today we had gorgeous weather .... great day to head to a country auction nearby.

Looking for "new" goodies to add to my shop.

When I walked in the tables were filled and all set to go.

I did spot a few items I wouldn't mind bringing home...

This pretty roses urn...

Oui Oui! I wouldn't mind having this French perfume bottle...

Amazing looking Staffordshire (style?) dogs..

A beautiful beaded collar...

But then I ran into Mr. Stinky here. What. Is. This. I had to laugh. He was making quite a specatcle each time a potential bidder would walk in and check out the prospects. Just wondering if stuffed skunks have become the new collectible!

I actually never stayed long enough to find out how much he went for.

The auction was starting much later than anticpated and I didn't have a whole lot of time as I had a babysitter to watch Dear Bebe. With what time I had left I scoured table after table and brought home a few goodies.

I'll be sharing them on here after I take photos of them tomorrow.

An interesting and fun day ... there's a saying I think for this:

Country auctions are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get!
