Today is Thursday and tonight we are going to our normal Thursday night auction. We have auctions on Monday's and Thursday.
We bought some WWW2 books and a set of Time Life Civil War books to sell at Thursday's auction. Hopefully they will get to them since they are full of items to auction off. Last week we had 8 WWW2  books and sold them for $102.50 we netted $82.00. We bought them for $8.00 and probably got more and sold faster than on eBay. Monday night auctions are not good for books for some reason.
The one thing I saw was some vintage Barbie dolls. Most have some body damage some where, green ears, legs stained and one has a split in neck area. They probably will get bid up to high for me to buy and resell. Time will tell.
What I bought last Monday night was some Las Vegas ash trays. I have started to collect ash trays from casinos and businesses. Since smoking is less popular these old ash trays can be collectible. Fun and inexpensive to buy most times.

I am now up to 18 Las Vegas or other advertising ash trays. This little silver colored one in the second picture almost went back to the auction house as an undesirable. I turned it over and see that it says
copyrighted made in Occupied Japan. It will stay in my collection for now.
Thanks for stopping by and hope that you have a great rest of the week. Grace
