I packed up the babe yesterday morning and headed up to the Presidio Auction. I didn't get there in time to bid on the 40 clocks, but that's probably a good thing; can you imagine the sound of 40 TICKING clocks in the house? Anxiety would surely set in.
We spent about an hour watching the auction. The prices seemed pretty reasonable. Everything I saw went for less than $500 (grammar question: should it be "fewer than $500" because $500 is a quantity?) It was nice and low key; the babe could roll around on the floor (it was cleanish). I only bid on a few cabinets, but didn't win any of them.
Interestingly, I was interviewed and photographed by the San Francisco Chronicle. We made the beginning and end of the article. Click here for the full article.
And guess what? People still read the newspaper! My aunt just called to let me know that my name was in the paper (no photo in the print edition).
