Well we are down to our final Tailgate Auction for the season. After many rain cancellations we were able to pull off last Thursday and we give it a go tomorrow. We are really enjoying ourselves and getting to know a lot of people. This is what is has always been fro the beginning, Les getting his name out there and we feel that we have succeeded!! We are making contacts and getting calls for him to come and see peoples collections, big smile here :-). Hope all is well with you my friends. Have a wonderful day.
Yes, we now have two auctions under our belt. Both were Tailgate Auctions and both came with minor blips and burps but none the less they were a success and we are learning.
Has this weather not been great (at least here in our neck of the woods). And as we prepare for another auction I fear that the weather may not be so kind to us. Below is the info on our next up coming auction. If the October 16th sale is cancelled do to rain we then will have it on October 23th. If you are in the area, won't you join us? We would love to see you.
Yes friends, Les is now a licenced Pennsylvania Auctioneer. He has passed all his tests and has his licence in his hands. It has been framed and now must be hung up. By law, it has to be displayed in case the Commonwealth of PA comes knockin' on the door.
And equally good news we are getting ready for our first auction. Below is our is ourannouncement. If you live in our area we would love for you to come and join us. Or, if you ever have questions or items that you would like to send to auction please keep us in mind.
Good Morning All, just a few pictures from around Ginnysyard of items that are moving on to our booth #145 at Weil Antiques in Allentown. If you are looking for anything in particular or like one of these items, let me know, everything is for sale and we are always happy to look for your special treasure. Have a great day, I will be pickin' some more in Ginnysyard.
June, how did you sneak up on me? Not sure where May went, but onto Summer we march. Les and I are STILL waiting for his transcripts, can you hear my fingers tapping? Our hands are tied until he takes the state test and passes (I have complete faith in him that he will pass, even if he does not ) before we can move forward. So to pass the time we talk and talk some more about our future auction company and in between we do yard work. Two hours behind a push mower today for me and two hours on the tractor for Les and do you think we are done, HA!! but we are getting there. Hope you are having a good day and great weather. I was a porch monkey :-) all weekend, it was perfect on the screen porch for looking at old Country Living magazines and reading the newspapers. Have a wonderful evening everyone.
Waiting can make one a bit CRAZY. Les passed his final exam for auctioneers school but must now wait until he is snail mailed the transcripts. At the same time his copy is mailed the testing center in TN will also be mailed a copy.
Once he has his, we then snail mail a copy of the transcript along with $220.00 and a very simple application requesting to take the PA state exam. Once TN has the money, the app and the transcript (even though they have one already) they will snail mail the testing center info to him. He then calls the testing center to set-up a time.
Really people? in this day and age of computers all of this must go thru the USPS?
So, we are looking at Les possibly having his auctioneers license by mid to late July, yes we started this when it was still Winter and we will be entering late Summer when he has the paper in hand. Until that time we are waiting and going CRAZY!
Happy May Everyone! Hope that the weather is changing for the better for all of you. We have had nice days and not some nice days, but like the saying goes "Don't like the weather, wait an hour and it will change.
May is a special month for me/us. First off it is our anniversary and this year it is our 40TH!! Wow, really where has the time gone? Other then dinner out, we our laying low. This Winter/Early Spring has been very costly at the old farmhouse, oil, plumbing, etc. But we will get to celebrate again this month when Les (hubby) graduates from Auctioneering school. And while he will not officially be an auctioneer until he takes the state exam and passes he will officially be done with school on May 14th. It has been a long 10 weeks for us both but I am so proud of him, that he had the courage at his age (62) to decide it was time to make a change for the both of us.
Looking forward to working side by side with my auctioneer :-). Please keep him/us in your thoughts and once he passes I will let you know. And maybe we can do an auction for you!!
