It's been a while since we've been to an auction. The main reason for this is because we will be moving house this summer, potentially into rented accommodation for a few months, and I am on a house spending hiatus. I tell you, it's killing me. I cannot WAIT to have a new home to play with, but this may be a while away yet.
However, I couldn't help but sneak a peek at the Modern Design auction at TW Gaze's in Diss, Norfolk, that is taking place this Saturday. Here's a selection of items that caught my eye, but there is much more in the catalogue, and lots unphotographed! Sadly we will be up in Yorkshire visiting the husband's family so I can't even go there to stroke these things :-( Of course you can bid remotely but as I said, I'm not buying!
