Sold!

Thursday night:

So stressful, but it's over with a decent result. We sat inside while the bidders and bystanders gathered outside. And no one bid. And no one bid. And no one bid. Finally the auctioneer got someone to start with a super-low bid, so far below our reserve that I misheard it! Then the bids slowly crept up. The auctioneer kept getting to "going three times" before there would be another bid at the last second! Finally it got up to our absolute minimum and kept going a bit higher to a figure we were happy with. Not delighted, but happy. It was a hideously stressful 20 minutes, but now we can relax!

    1. Maybe someone to knock it down and rebuild? Always people who look for something cheap.
