A small soapstone figure ran off with a $13 bid, a small group of hat pins caught an $11 bid and a fancy ladies hair comb displayed a $13 bid. A small old sleepy eye cream pitcher held strong for a $75 bid and the Van Briggle horse raised up on its hind legs for $80 as it was lifted out of the show case.

A small portable bar went to a new home for $75 and a small couch sold for $35. The floor model butter churn paddled its way to $115 while the wood console sewing machine sold for $20. A small pull-along wood toy went to $9 and some smaller toys in a box sold for $20. An old parking meter saw a $30 bid and a punch bowl sold for $12.50.

A White House cookbook went to a new home for $7.50, a group of four director chairs sold at $10 and a Sawzal worked out for $25. A small coo-coo clock went to $15, a cast-iron door stop sold for $25 and two quilts sold for $30 each.

All in all it was a well attended auction with prices average to strong. See you at the next auction.
