Bargains at Copake Auction

Copake Auction in Copake, NY has an Unreserved One Owner Estate Auction coming up May 15th. Here is a link to the on-line catalogue. The items have multiple photos when you click on one which helps in viewing the condition. BUT, there's nothing like going in person to the preview and/or auction itself.

Lots of enticing bargains.

If you're decorating for a modern look this sofa has an estimate of $150 to $250 (Lot 12)!

This 19th century 'dough mixing' table is a very nice piece of painted furniture that would look great in a country shabby chic look or even a spare modern white room. This is Lot 37 and estimated at $250 - $450.

There's always room for another mirror in any home and this 19th century Federal mirror is quite cute and the size that fits almost anywhere. This is estimated at $100 - $150 (Lot 51).

Copake always seems to have a good selection of quilts and weather vanes. I have always wanted a weather vane, but have not been ready to take the plunge because I don't yet feel knowledgeable enough to pay what they go for.They are wonderful sculptures in any setting.

I like this chicken weather vane (Lot 57), with an estimate range of $2,500 - $3,500. I think I'm holding out for a horse!

The auction preview is from May 13 to the time of the sale on May 15th. The auction starts at 5pm.
