My latest auction purchase!
« on: 14 Mar 2021 08:46AM »
Over the last few years, I have become a bit of an auction obsessive. Not this EBay stuff, proper auction house bidding. Most of them do live on line bidding, and have had to adapt during lockdown, so it's perfect for me!

Anyway, we've been looking for a dining  table that's just the right size for our sitting room but won't dominate it. I saw the ideal table. A 17C fruit wood tavern table!  Long enough to fit our ever expanding family around and narrow enough not to intrude on the room. So bidding day came,  I left every one else standing with my ferocious bidding, and ended up paying much less than I had anticipated. Bargain! 

MrDD picked it up on Friday (local saleroom) and it is now safely in place. We're really pleased with it, and MrDD suitably welcomed it with a tankard of ale!

Now I need some chairs...............

Good one, DD, I expect persistence will net you some fine chairs soon!

Won't that be a treat when Covid restrictions ease enough to allow indoor gatherings once more ...
