Thursday: Fakenham Auction Time

One mans junk is another mans treasure!

Well it’s nearly time again for this week’s auction.  I have posted before about a really great Auction in Fakenham (about 30 minutes from Cromer).   I won’t be going this week either, but after looking at their site, there are few things I’d happily bid a few pounds on as I’d like them.  Trouble is getting them home!

This is the place which I scored a deal on some items. I scored my dining table for a POUND,

A gate leg hall table for a POUND and a Stompa kids cabin bed for FIVE POUNDS.

An exercise machine – shared with my MIL as we were just talking about an at home fitness item.

Kids seesaw thing & water table – both better for younger kids but for a POUND, I’d take them for the yard.

We already have couches but I thought these two leather sofas are in great shape.  We wouldn’t buy them if we came there, but a great score.

Large mirror for either the living room or dining room’s fireplace.  I’d paint the trim.

Just what we need, an outdoor table & chairs with umbrella.  This item is what I’d bid on most.  I’d probably go up to 40 on this item.  I suspect it will be very popular.

A large, pine wardrobe for Soren or Maebh’s room.

Outside pots for the garden.

I’d love to have this hutch to put in corner of the dining room.  I’d give it a new color paint, not sure which color and some knobs, but it’s very cute.  I’d go up to 20 on this one.

Old fashion sewing table – would use for a hall table, but I suspect that will go for a decent price.

Four director chairs – could be good for the garden

Going to this auction can be a bit addicting, I admit.  I think I might get this way with the car boot sales on the weekends.  It’s fun to score a deal.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
