Two sets of trays by Norman Rockwell served up a $130 bid. Tobacco jars sold from $5 to $45 each with some Fenton baskets capturing $20 and $30 bids with the first choice on the table topping out at $45 each.

Antique furniture items included the wooden floor butter church which paddled its way to $90. A large oak cabinet sold for $130 and the smaller oak cabinet sold for $115.

A very nice quilt sold for $45 and a walnut table brought in $37.50. A large corner cabinet sold for $50 and the antique bed with large headboard in 3/4 size brought in only $35.

Madam Alexander dolls were plentiful and in original boxes and sold from $15 to $50. A Halloween costume from an earlier era scared up a $15 bid.

Other Halloween masks sold at $30 with an early paper pumpkin lighting up a $27.50 bid. Several early pictures from the Victorian era sold from $5 to $25 each. Some whiskey decanters sold for $25 and a pair of boys cowboy boots with western shirt sold for $39.

A Holly Hobby metal lunch box was carried off for $25. It was great auction. Bidding was average to strong. The third auction from this home is scheduled for Dec. 14 and should be as large if not larger.

Have a nice Thanksgiving with your family.
