Best Auction Find of the Year

Earlier this month I found what probably has to be my best auction find ever. While I enjoy attending local auctions in person, I also like to shop online auctions too. Sometimes prices go crazy high and sometimes you can get things for an incredible deal.

Well this was the great deal. I have been wanting to purchase a china hutch for a while to go in my breakfast room but I hadn’t been able to find one at a good price. Okay, what I really wanted was a great price.

I found one on the everything but the house (ebth) website. I had been bidding on it along with some matching table and chairs pieces to sell in my booth. The table and chairs went for a high price but strangely enough, I was able to get the solid wood, gorgeous china hutch for only 31 dollars! Yes I said 31 dollars! I was so surprised.

We immediately brought it home and I filled it with a set of Blue Willow from my children’s great grandmother.

Doesn’t it look so good?

I like the Blue Willow displayed with the milk glass.

I think it will be fun to decorate it for Christmas with my Christmas china and all the other holidays and seasons too.

Look at the solid wood shelves. This hutch is so well built, and heavy.

And it has dove-tail drawers.

Definitely my best auction find, so far. Do you have a favorite auction treasure?

    That’s awesome!

  2. My grandma had a hutch so similar to yours. I love those great finds at auctions, yard sales and craigslist!

    • Hi Liz. My Mom has one similar to this too. That is probably why I like it so much, childhood memories.

  3. Oh my!! It’s lovely!
    Great find and you will have such fun with it!!

    • Thank you Nancy. I think it will be fun decorating it for the different holidays and seasons. Kathy

  4. $31.oo?!! That’s stinkin’ crazy–you really scored. It looks fabulous with your blue willow and milk glass collection. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Vintage Charm, Kathy!

  5. Oh my! That’s ridiculously low (good for you!) A person can’t even get something like that that inexpensively at the ReStore, a yard sale or anywhere else. I bet the seller was sad it didn’t go any higher. It looks great with your Blue Willow and milk glass.

    • Thanks Rita. I was very excited to get it for the price. It all balances out though. Some items sold for a lot of money and a few were real bargains. I love having it to display my Blue Willow. Kathy
