I told you I would share the other things that I bought at the auction. At the end of the auction the auctioneer called for us to bring up things that we would pay $5.00 for. And then he asked who brought it up, you raised your hand and your bid started at $5.00. I got this vintage Monopoly game for $5.00, the tag on it states that it dates from 1951, it has the wooden pieces, money cards etc. As far as I can tell it is all intact. Some are selling on eBay for around $15.00. I wanted to start a little business selling some of my stuff on eBay, but I never have and David said a big no to this---so I guess I'll keep it.
This one of the plates I bought, it too was $5.00 ( with the stand included), it has a gorgeous thick gold rim. I bought two others for $5.00 each, one has an etched magnolia and the other has flowers too. Things ran a little high, normally I would have expected to pay $2.50 for each of them...but it's okay. I wanted them!!
Let me know what you all think. Did I do good?
