Cool and damp, but hopefully clear… like yesterday. It got up into the 80s in the sun. Not so much in the shade, but nice ‘shirtsleeves’ weather.
Didn’t get much done on the list. Gotta admit, with the kids home I don’t get a whole lot of outside stuff done. Did get a bunch of auction stuff caught up. Bought another freezer. Used one this time, but $70 out the door. That’s one of my pickups today. The other might be some sort of defensive tool. There are a LOT of them in auctions this month. Might be people are trying to raise cash. Ammo too, but mostly single boxes of all different brands and sizes. The ammo isn’t going cheap, but there isn’t a delivery charge and it won’t show up on the CC bill as what it is. Tools, well they haven’t been cheap either but the prices are more reasonable than they were. I was shocked to get what I got, about $100 under retail. There were a lot of oddball pieces. Rossi revolvers, no name .25 semiautos… stuff from the 50s…
One whole auction is new gubs. Like a store went out of business or something. Starting bids are low, but we’ll see where they end up. NOT paying $650 for a DelTon that sold for $325 a couple of years ago… but I will keep watching to see where stuff ends up.
I’m seeing a lot of cards and sports memorabilia, and a lot of silver coins. That definitely feels like selling to raise money. I’ve expected it long before now, but people like their stuff and will try to keep it.
I don’t know who’s buying, but the silver at least is bringing good prices. Too rich for my blood.
Canned food is what you’d be buying with that junk silver anyway, so why not skip the middle man?
Stack it up folks.
