Last weekend in addition to going to one of my favorite Church Rummage Sales, I also attending a rarity in Lake County, Illinois~ a Farm Auction.
And not just any old farm auction, a farm auction of a 96 year old lifetime auction devotee who over the years bought everything.... and I mean everything... that other people didn't buy at every farm auction in the area.
I controlled myself. I ONLY stocked up on two of the staples of my etsy shop.
Vintage clothespins of all kinds.
Vintage zinc Ball jar lids.
AND... I enjoyed going to the auction more than just the shopping.
I went for the restful farm atmosphere. lovely autumn weather, great farm wife food stand, and informed and interesting farmer bidders.
My maternal grandfather and great uncles were all farmers in Indiana so I loved everything about this day in the country!
