I Heart Auctions!

I love auctions. Adore them. Enjoy them. Look forward to them. My new obsession is the online auction (no, not EBAY - I am so over that). These are local online auctions where you bid and then pick up your items. Sometimes you get lucky and find out they are literally a few minutes from your home. Then you get even luckier when you are able to score this...
Cue music...Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Awesome 7 taper candle stand for...wait for it.
Wait for it...no, really, keep waiting...

5 !!!!!!!!!! $5! $5 candle stand (you are humming the $5 foot long song right?)
Oh my. Seeing as the cold weather approaches and I do not have any shows planned until April - I get to keep and decorate this baby without any guilt. One wonders if I'll be ready to give it up come Spring?
