The attic of the creamery. My dad and I were rummaging around up there and I found a box with some of my grandmother's sewing notions and buttons. And a box of worsted weight wool -- those have probably been up there for 30 years, and I was thrilled. Among the buttons I found were some clear orange glass buttons that I remember in my grandma's button box when I was little.
Among the auction items was a 15 gallon crock that sold for hundreds of dollars.
If you read any of the articles about the auction, you know that my dad had an old car hobby -- these were a few front ends and bumpers up for sale. I love how these look, I can almost imagine them being part of the decor of an urban loft.
