After yard sales on Saturday, Em and I went to a Farm Auction. I didn't need a farm, but I was a good sport and played along.
Apparently a lot of people attend Farm Auctions. Not sure why, most of them already have farms.
Red things always catch my attention!
Boy, if I could have figured out a way to get this to New Life Ranch, I would have so bid on this party barge-bus-trailer thingy. I'm sure they've been looking all over for one of these!
Emily wondered why this man was wearing a hard-hat at an auction. The sky was definitely NOT falling.
I realize the tops of these children's heads seems to be the focus of this photo but it is actually the butter-churner that went for $40 to Emily's friend's sister. These are her children's heads.
My hard-and-fast rule about attending auctions is I have to bid on something. I bid on and won this plant stand for $2.50. The auctioneer thanked me for bidding. I guess farmers don't need plant stands from Ross with the price tag still on the bottom that say $14.99. I got so caught up in the excitement of bidding low and winning, that I also won a box of pottery for $5.00. Please don't tell the Lockies.
Emily and I wore flip-flops to the auction. We didn't know it would be held in a horse pasture. But Sarah, Emily's farmer-friend, knew it and came in boots, cut-offs, up-do and all. Love you Sarah!
There were guns. Lots of guns.
Fun morning at the auction with Emily and her farmer-friends.
