My Dad LOVED auction sales. I remember him taking me with him when I was little. I remember the excitement of the crowd as they waited for that item they just had to have to come up on the auction block. I loved to listen to the auctioneer belt out what seemed to be a different language while people frantically bid back and forth seemingly fighting over a prized item. I also remember my Mom rolling her eyes everytime my dad came home with a whole box of things he bought just to get one treasure. Recently a story about a Canadian couple who decided they were relocating to Scotland related the story of how the young man went on ahead to buy a house and ended up buying the wrong one at an auction. He didn't understand why it was so cheap until he realized he had bought a house that had been abandoned for over 20 yers and needed a LOT of work before it would be liveable. Long story short, the couple decided they would keep the house and document the huge task of renovating on Instagram so we can follow their progress. You can check out the full story below.
