You know how you see on TV all these auctions for antique furniture?
I love those shows!
Despite having lived here for maaaany years I was not aware of any local auction houses.
Well, my colleague changed all that when she introduced me to a local auction house. The great thing is that they have their catalogue online and you can go an browse the items live for a week before the auction. For some items you can bid online, for others you can leave a bid if you can't be there in person on the day.
The auction takes place today and last night we went over to have a look at things as she was looking for a particular item. The item she had seen online didn't turn out so nice 'in real life', but she found some other nice items she put in a bid on.
I decided not to put in any bids, but rather take some time looking and learning.
According to The (minimalist) Professor, I would need a larger house as well to accommodate any more furniture...

I would love to attend an auction, but WORK gets in the way... At least I can see online what the various items went for and learn from that!
