Auction Finds

This past weekend revolved around viewings for auctions. There are four being held in the local area this week, so getting a clear idea of where to go and what to bid for (and how much) is crucial, especially as I have to rely on my beloved to bid for me while I’m doing the day job.

Here’s a few items that I picked out:

These enamel Butlin’s badges were mementos of someone’s 60s holidays:

This child’s garden roller has seen a lot of love, imagine the pleasure that it must have given a child back in the 50s:

This unusual green and white enamel kitchen scale uses weights sliding along bars to measure what’s in the tray:
