I went over to check on the picket fence. Still laying there (it wanted to go home with, I could just tell). I couldn’t wait to bid on it. I am really cheep when it comes to bidding though. I looked around a little bit more and found a potato fork and a really cool wooden handled cement shovel. I liked them both. Thought I would bid on those also, because we need a cement shovel for our other fencing job. Have I told you about that? That will be for another day. I ended up getting the potato fork and cement shovel. $3.00 each. Yes!!!
Anyway, I found an adorable kerosene heater. I wanted to bid on that, if it went low also. That was all I found. Lots and lots of men were coming as the small things were winding up, that meant maybe they wouldn’t want my girly stuff. I was ready when they started bidding. I ended up getting the kerosene heater for 7.00. I was soo excited. Isn’t it cute? I will use it in the potters shed when the weather gets nippy in the fall. We can cuddle around it.
The sale was going strong. The trucks and tractors would be later in the sale.
They had two sales going on at the same time. One on the North section and one on the South. We were at the north side because Mr. Phil was trying to see what some of the things were going for. We missed my picket fences. We were about 8 items to late. I couldn’t believe it. Stink, as Grandma Jo always said! I went up to a lady and asked her if she knew who bid on the picket fence? She said that no one wanted it so this one lady (who writes down the amounts of the items bid on) bought them, but really wanted the just the windmill part for her garden! She told me who the lady was and off I went! I asked the lady about the fence and she said, "Would you pay ONE DOLLAR for it"? Can you believe it? I was ecstatic. GOD was so merciful to me! Even if He hadn't worked it out He would still be merciful, right?
