Fun Time Spent At The Local Auctions Treasures Found And Missed 11/22/11

Tonight was auction night. If you have ever gone to auctions on a regular basis as we do, soon people find out what you buy and start to get an interest in those items. If I am buying costume jewelry then they will start to bid it up. If it is found out I sold vintage baseball gloves on ebay all of a sudden the price goes up so high that there is no profit to really be made.
Tonight I decided to walk around and find something small on several tables. Something that is a bit off the wall that I could put in my antique mall.
End of the night I had an unusal coconut head made to look a pirate,
a neat vintage nautical picture,

an old frame with two wedding pictures or maybe one wedding picture and the other is a lady in white with bible and rosary. Not sure if wedding photo or something else. Have any of you ever seen a early 1900's photo with the bride only, no groom? Need to figure that out before selling. Frame has paint chipping. Need to do something there.

 Sitting under one table was a small box and stuck in there were some vintage Fuller Brush letter openers, old advertising stir stick, beer openers with advertising plus a knife.
Buy of the night was a turn of the century knife.
There were a couple of things I would of liked but price went to high. Secret is to know when to stop the bidding
End of the night results is hubby and I had a fun evening visiting with friends and searching for treasures to resell.
Hope that your treasure hunting is fun and profitable. Thanks for stopping by.. Grace
