@ Auction

Yesterday was a single estate event at one of my favorite auction houses here in North Carolina.   As usual, I met some fun people, had a great time, ate some seriously delicious tomato soup & grilled cheese from The Wooden Nickel, and found wonderful things -- including a pair of alabaster lamps, a pair of curly maple benches, a pair of B3 chairs (yes, I love it when things come in 2's), and this fabulous & huge gilt Prince of Wales mirror in perfect condition, originally crafted in Groton, Massachusetts by Carver's Guild.

Lovely, isn't it. This one might be a keeper.

  2. jealous! I gave up my antiques spot a few years ago and I think one of the things I miss most is auctions. You might have to hook me up sometime. . .
