    Auction Finds

    Spring isn’t the only time to buy lovely outdoor furniture

    Looking along the row of furniture on the back lot of an auction house recently, I was a bit confused about whether it was the end of summer or the beginning of spring.

    Fall will soon be upon us, but you couldn’t tell by some of the lovely outdoor furniture on the lot. I’m not talking a table here or a bench there. There were all types of wrought iron outdoor and patio furniture – and stone accessories – for sale. And they were sold at very reasonable prices.

    Two wrought iron patio sets at auction. They sold for $110 each.

    Normally, I write about these different choices in the spring, particularly ones cheaper than what you’d find at the big box stores.

    I’ll let this furniture speak for itself:

    This fancy bench with bas-relief figures was one of five for sale, along with four chairs similar to it in design.

    The auctioneer called this wrought iron set an ice cream parlor set. The table is missing a glass top and one chair is missing a cushion. The set sold for $25.

    This table, with adornments shaped like roses, only needs a glass top. I was tempted to bid on it , but didn’t. It sold for $10.
