First Weekend of the Judd Auction

Saturday dawned clear and quite cold…what a wonderful day to begin the George Judd Auction. Collectors and dealers arrived from 11 states — North and South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Mississippi and Texas. Phone bidders weighed in from Illinois, New Hampshire and California. Thank goodness the interest in great antique furniture and smalls is still strong!

The baskets and the Southern pottery were the categories of choice, but the sugar chest was the darling of the day!

With ham biscuits from Tucker’s and barbecue from Little Richard’s, hot coffee and sweet tea, the crowd stayed until the last hammer fell and spirits never weakened, in spite of the cold.

On Sunday, we began at 12:00 noon, and the warm sun helped to make the second day more enjoyable. Chicken stew from Tucker’s kept us happy, and once again the baskets and pottery were strong, but samplers, paintings, and wooden items were equally strong. New friends became old friends, and the old friends were happy for the occasion to be together.

The auctioneer, Lynn Myers, from Myers Auction Service in East Bend, did an exemplary job keeping us entertained, and his wonderful staff kept the bids straight and the items coming.

Our crew, as always, did a fabulous job!

We thank all of our buyers and all of our bidders for your interest and your kind words! See you next Saturday in Advance!
