My great grandfather gave me a fraternity sword from the Knights of Pythias, a fraternity formed during the Reconstruction Era.  It doesn't have the sheath or the chain on the pommel, but it's still in good shape.

I have a 1962 Studebaker Lark Cruiser Sedan. My latest purchase is a 1957 Magnovx portable record player, the thing weighs about 50 pounds, but great sound. I put a Patti Page album on and it was heaven.

I just found a store with a "Man Section" Shaving bowls, razors, vintage signs, decanters, canes, and all sorts of stuff. My fiance' tells me that we have no more room for stuff...:(

Yes, it happens. But bidding is half of the fun! I have only been to a few but I enjoy estate auctions as well. not only are there great finds but the thrill of bidding is just a much a reason to be there!
