See this little milk stool?
It just had its debut and was featured on the front page of Etsy this morning!
Some of you know that we recently opened Old Time Pickers as an online country store.
It's all about Rust & Crust & Weathered & Worn!
We are loving it and had just started listing items this past Friday.
I almost did not get this milk stool. It wasn't from a lack of trying. It was from an abundance of confusion. This stool came from an estate auction. All the items were out on the lawn for inspection and I always arrive early enough to give myself some time to determine my strategy. Auctions can get crazy and you really need to stay on top of things. So I thought I was ready.
But late in the day, near the end, when I started to become tired, they pulled out this milk stool out of nowhere. I'm not kidding! And the bidding began. Wait, I want that! Well, I jumped in and then quickly lost the bid. Or so I thought.
I was turning to walk away when everyone was trying to get my attention. I turned back to the crowd and everyone was staring at me. My response was..."What?" (I said I was getting tired.) The auctioneer asked me if I wanted it or not?
Me-"I didn't win it."
Other lady-"I thought you had the last bid."
Me-"Well, I thought you did."
Other lady-" Hmmm...what was your last bid?'
That is when the auctioneer interrupted our polite conversation and determined that
I did win the bid. So this cute little stool came home with me.
As I said, auctions can get crazy. But they are always fun!
