Went to the local estate auction here this afternoon and we got a little crazy.
The mood was set when I was waiting around for them to sell an older Craftsman 6 drawer rolling tool cabinet. They finally get to it and I hear 20, 25, 30, 35 SOLD. In about 6 seconds. Their tempo is usually MUCH slower. I was still trying to raise my hand at that point. Oh well...
Later on there was a wooden machinists chest that I was able to purchase. It's a National Cabinet Co. chest which if what I read on the googleweb it was Gerstner's value line. It's really dirty and I need some guidance on cleaning it up. The finish on the case is pretty much gone and I'm not sure what to do with it and what I should clean it with. Windex and paper towels are removing tons of dirt but no finish so far.
LOML purchased what was described as a short barrister book case. The 2 doors flip up but do not slide back into the case.
I then spent $5 on the wooden rocker and LOML spent $5 on the pair of wooden "Burl" baskets.
I'm looking at cleaning up the chair and if I don't like it selling it in the Townwide Garage Sale we enrolled in in Early May. That how we will get rid of the "Barrister" and some of the curbside shopping items we have picked up over the years.
