I Made Money At The Auction
Now here's a first. I went to an auction Saturday. (It is always sooo much fun, my BFF Judy and I have as much fun people watching as we do bidding.)
But anyway, I had seen these glasses on the auction web site, and when they came up for bid...I got 'em for $2.50. And to quote the auctioneer, a set of four with an extra one to break. Yep a set of 5. However, they were quite pretty--etched and with a thick gold trim around the top.
A little while later, this guy sitting behind me, said, "them sure are some purty glasses." And I said, "thank you, I think so too."
Him: How much do you want for them?
Me: Well, I paid $2.50.
Him: Will you take $5.00?
Me: Sure. But why do you want them? (getting worried that he might be a dealer and they might be worth more...)
Him: 'Cause I think they are purty.
Me: It's a deal.
Now that's a first, I made money at an auction!!
I'll post pictures of the rest of my treasures later this week.
