Last night my husband and I went to an auction for the first time. They sold a house and all its contents. The house sold first and for a very cheap price. Had an acre of land but needed some work.
We thought we were only buying the vacuum sweeper, the leaf blower and the vacuum cleaning machine. We were wrong. That $ 25 included the entire table. A lot of this stuff went into our house and some we will resell.
There was one lady there who bought 4 tables worth of stuff. She outbid us and that’s OK. I’m almost positive she does that to resell at garage sales. I say good for her.
Anyway to make money honestly is OK by me. Especially for middle aged women like us. Women and men in our age group are screwed when it comes to job hunting. Employers want younger cheaper employees. Now I did talk to one person there buying things at the auction. She said she cannot keep good help and that a lot of people are lazy. That I agree with. I said well, if I wanted to find a job here would I have any problem? She said no way. You’d be scooped up immediately.
We got out of this deal: a Bissell vacuum sweeper, a leaf blower (which both work like a charm and are virtually new). Probably a dozen picture frames, a miniature tea cup and glasses, dishes (stuff we need for this southern house), angel statutes (which IMO help guard and keep the house safe), foot massager, jewelry boxes (NICE ONES), Samsonite luggage piece (the old kind that is made well and in the USA), Christian books and more odds and ends too much to go into.
Then we stopped at the local grocery stores. Found 3 bags of potatoes (new) and 2 bags of carrots. The potatoes I will cook and refreeze.
This is manifestation at work. We needed something and God provided. How lovely is that?
