eclectic auction finds

 collection of jewelry, from High Road Auctions in Chiswick, London

campaign folding chair, ebay

 tiny jointed wooden doll, ebay

Anyone who knows me know that I love auctions. I find the range of what you can find is fantastic, and I always come up with interesting and unusual furniture and appealing little things. I enjoy finding things I didn't know I needed, like this useful folding iron campaign chair that becomes a twin bed. Or this tiny wooden jointed doll that would be sweet in a box frame displayed in a child's room. The best thing is these days it's easy to view auction catalogs online and bid, so participating doesn't involve showing up in person, which makes your options geographically unlimited!
