Auction Love

In the December/January issue of House Beautiful, Bunny Williams talks about the great deals on Period Furniture to be had at Auctions – “why pay $12,000.00 for a new chest of drawers when you can buy a gorgeous hand made faded mahogany thing at auction for $1200.00”

This past weekend, I spent several hours at Nadeau’s Dec. 1st auction. The room was full and fabulous bargains to be had! Not only vintage chests, but dining room tables complete with chairs, a beautiful hand painted king size four poster bed, full sets of antique china from Stafford Shire to Fiesta ware and much more.

I was ecstatic to score on a custom made sectional that looked fresh from the workroom.

Not only was bidding lively and brisk, but the auction crowd was made up of many young fashionable people looking for something not only classic but unique in the world current big box decorating.

What a thrill to see. Bunny would be smiling.
