Quick update on last week’s silent auction. It ended Saturday, the winner was notified and the chair will be on its way to him tonight (I hope).
Several of you asked what the winning bid was. We’re going to remain silent, as this was a silent auction. Plus we don’t want to drive up the price of my chairs. I will say that the winning bid was higher than my typical price for a chair (so apologies to the guy who bid $50; you were not close).
Speaking of chairs: If you are coming to our open day this Saturday, I will have a couple Irish prototype chairs for sale for $500, cash and carry, as-is where-is etc. If the chairs don’t sell on Saturday, I’ll do a raffle here on the blog.
The open day is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 11, at our storefront at 837 Willard St., Covington, KY 41011.
We will have tools and books for sale during the day. We will be give away free Lost Art Press pencils and yardsticks. Plus we will have some blemished tools, books and apparel for sale for 50 percent off (cash only on blems).
And do ask to see the clock. Most of you will like the clock.
See you Saturday.
