New items listed for today - next listings on Friday.

Today new items are now on the website.

After a sleepless night I struggled out of bed at 5am this morning to go to the auction. However it was really worth it. I have returned with a lot of goodies, both sewing items, antique lace and fabrics.
There was the most amazing amount of antique lace in one lot. It was so beautiful that you had to go and view it in the office in case it got damaged. There were two telephone bids. I managed to out bid one telephone bidder but couldn't pay any more than the second bidder. My husband was going red in the face as I kept bidding and breathed a sigh of relief when I stopped. I haven't seen this quality of lace in such quantity, for a long time. It was unfortunate that I wasn't able to buy it but I did managed to out bid the two telephone bidders on a smaller box, presumably from the same house clearance.

As I have a great deal of items to sort out, log into my records and price up before I pop them on the website, I have decided that I will not list tomorrow but list on Friday and Sunday. That way I can incorporate some of the lovely items I have just bought. I will try and take a photograph of some of the items for you and publish here tomorrow.
