Auction donations coming in!

Posted on: June 13, 2010

Bird houses, beautiful baskets and lions and tigers and bears oh my!

Jane and Steve Hembree donated this exquisite gold flatware set in its own box.

Friends of Murphy Library’s Auction Committee are busy organizing donations for the August 7 Auction at Bob Grove Auctions.  Here are some of the beautiful items: 

Don't miss the china teapot with cups and saucers, cake plate and even a watering can.

Board and Auction Committee members Nora King and Diane Hines open up our room at Valley River Merchants for auction donations every Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Donations may also be dropped off at the Murphy Library.

Wall art, handsome shelving, and a chest of drawers.

Check out Jane Hembree’s comment about the “gold” flatware set from Thailand. See comments above.

There is something for everyone, even the most adventurous of us.

The auction items look wonderful. I would just like to say, for those of you who wondered why we are giving away gold….NOT. The Thai “silverware” is actually Thai Bronze. Still beautiful but selling it won’t make you rich. You might be interested to know that Steve and I won the bronze ware in Thailand when we were stationed there and were on a bowling league. We contributed a certain amount of money each week and the winners of the tournaments received some great gifts.
