It is customary at the end of the year to look back on the past year and look forward to the year ahead. We did 33 auctions in 2018!!!! Thirty-three!!! From doing a few a year when Matt and I first met, to doing it full-time in a few short years, it has grown a lot. And we hope that it will continue to grow. Each year, I try to set goals that I would like to accomplish in the new year. Often, I am like most of us that set a goal and by the end of January it is a memory. One of the goals that I set for myself this year is to write at least one blog each month. I have thought about lots of different ideas and I have had some people ask me to start writing about other things than auctions, but I don’t think I am ready to do that. At least not here. So, I finally settled on an idea of a monthly behind the auction scoop. Each month, I will look back on the auctions that we have had that month and some of the items we have sold and bring you the behind the auctions scoop. Hopefully, I can share some of the stories of the interesting things and even more interesting people that we meet along the way.
Our first auction of 2019 was the Signs, Advertising, Gas & Oil, Primitives & Antiques auction on January 5th. Here are some of my favorite items-
Lot 193 Upright Pepsi machine- I am a total Pepsi girl. It should be its own food group, in my opinion. This is just cool, and I mean, what girl doesn’t dream of having her own Pepsi machine!
