Auction Highlights for Thursday 4/4/2024

Unlike last week, when I knew I had a big auction on Wednesday to load up on merch for the Thursday show, this week is looking pretty dry on the auction front, so I knew I had to make the weekend count. Saturday I hit up a super quick in-and-out tailgate antique show just down the road a way, and picked up a few neat things. There was nothing happening locally on Sunday, so I took off at 4:30am to Connecticut for the Mansfield Drive In Flea Market. It was my first time there, and I had read that they don't open til 8:00am, but typically if a flea market's official opening time is 7:00 or 8:00 in the morning, buyers are there picking between 4:00 and 5:00am. Little did I know that Mansfield has a hard 8:00 opening time, with the market gated off until then. So I got there with a couple hours to kill... hours I could have spent still in bed. Whoops!

Neither of the markets turned up a whole lot of stuff, though there were indeed a few interesting finds. Together with some really fun consignments for this week, Thursday's show is shaping up to be a good one! I hope you'll join us.

The auction goes down Thursday, April 4th, at 8pm EST right here and only here on!
