Top Secret Auction

I almost fell off my chair when I came across this upcoming auction! OH GOODNESS ME!!! So many amazing things all in one auction. These are just a few pictures I've picked out to show. Look at that lamp, all that heywake, 50's cateye glasses, mid-century modern galore, and they also have box lots!!! I love box lots. I think I've died and gone to heaven but will need to sell my soul to the devil for some extra cash!


The lamp of my dreams!


Heywake


Bakelite radios, desk lamps, dresser sets!


Heywake!!


Tulip chairs...I wonder if the table is there too??



Lamps, Jewelry, glasses, purses!

So many cool things, I don't know what to try to spend my money on first?? I think it's gonna be the lamp! :) I think I might need to rent a truck??? Gosh I hope they're not selling with two auctioneers...it's so freakin hard to make sure you don't miss things when they do that. But I'm guessing with the amount of stuff, there will be two auctioneers going in different places. I better wear my running shoes!

  12. Your skillz at treasure hunting are phenom! I love the fashion on here as well, been lurking but I had a ? Is it just me? I have no idea where to even start looking for treasures such as these. I, myself, am in no need of Heywake, but would like to get my sister one piece. I was just looking for vintage keys iron, black etc, and some things like that, maybe a nice mirror, but where would you suggest a "baby" vintage shopper start in the great big world of auction houses/etc. I live in Orlando, FL if that helps at all. Thanks, Col
