Most of the crew returned home from Paris on Sunday evening however we left the newlyweds behind to enjoy their honeymoon. Today we will be back in the auction room in full force in order to make up for lost time. We have most of the next auction in the building but have not started cataloging yet. Jim and Linda have cataloged about half of the August firearms auction and I will post pictures of that by the end of the week, also I am scheduled to pick up about 50 bows from a collector this afternoon for that auction. We have about 30-50 more lots to add to the coins/money auction but more to the point we will have to choose a date for that sale and our next Antiques/Estate Auction. The information will be posted as soon as we make a decision.
We used yesterday to recuperate from our travels and do a few personal things, kinda. My day was mostly spent in my workshop finishing a project for K97 and their Annual Fundraiser. I framed this guitar for them to auction off this Friday at their golf tournament. It’s a bit of a hobby of mine but really I should be avoiding it, very time consuming.

I will definitely be planning another trip to Paris. There is so much to see and do I cant even begin to do it justice in a few words here. In addition to the architecture, art, history, etc etc we also spent time in a mall with all the fanciest of fancy stores where I saw a wristwatch for about $900,000 CND that was so ugly I wouldn’t wear it if you gave it to me. I also saw a lot of things I would be happy to get as gifts so don’t worry, you’ll be able to get me something.
I ordered myself two of these Swarovski crystal staircases because, well, the sales girl was cute, plus I couldn’t understand what she was saying. I’m sure they will blend well with my Mission style furniture.
Off to the salt mines now.
