#691 Shopping at Auctions

We've been shopping at auctions.

During our first month in Missouri, we purchased a bedroom dresser at an Amish auction.

About a year later, we purchased a 1987 Wheel Horse at auction.
 
In between, we discovered the items we needed for our home projects could be found for a fair price at auction, such as this cool oscillating multi-tool,
and this RotoZip, so important during our floor work,


the Rockwell jawstand (still not really sure what this does),
  
 the carry-everything trailer (which can also be parked in the garage and serve as a workbench),
and this classic gardening tool.

We love the fun of recycling others' tools for a good price and meeting the neighbors.

Yours in scouring the countryside,
Mary

  1. Hey! I have that rake! In all seriousness! :) I think mine is probably a bit more wobbly, though. Did you ever run across the book you were looking for in conjunction with the Wheel Horse? The only one I could find was $$$$.
