Yesterday I went to an auction with $111 of Xmas and pocket money. There was a chest in auction house that I really wanted to get. So I saved up and waited for the auction. In the auction the chest was about the middle so I just read until it came up. When it came up I waited until the auctioneer dropped the price to $50 before bidding, no-one else bid. Once it was sold to me quite a few people congratulated me.
During the looking period when you get to see the things on sale I found a pair of chicken feet tongs in a mixed kitchenware basket. The lady next to me bought the mixed kitchenware, so at the end of the auction I asked her whether I could buy the chicken tongs off her. She just gave them to me!
A little bit after the auction the person next to us became friends with me and I’m planning on seeing her at the next auction. We think she might have a store because she bought more things than you would actually need in a house.
I store all my precious objects in the box. So far I have got a rock from the Northland School butterfly garden and a series of Ms Marvel comics (in near mint condition.)
