s c o r e !

The corkscrew auction gods shined upon us yesterday. And, this morning the confirmation phone call came through–well it was a voice mail technically–and it went something like this.

Hi Josef, this is Toni, (XXX) XXX-XXXX, if you can give me a call back so I can get your shipping info, and i’ll tell you the amount as far as what is owed, if you have a tax number, blah blah blah, give me a call. Bye.

She didn’t actually say "blah blah blah"

I shared the news with the lovely… awesome, we won the auction–but, I also placed a pretty high absentee bid… But, the message didn’t mention the ending price. Why didn’t the auctioneer’s voicemail say the amount??? Grrrrr…

Well, when I was available to place a call (some of you know the reason why we are preoccupied this week) I got the answer, I got the item for waaaaaaaaaaay less than my high bid. And, even with the buyer’s premium, sales tax, and shipping, the corkscrew was an unbelievably fantastic deal.

What was the score you ask?!?

A Tucker!!!

I don’t know if it is marked or not, but either way it will make a great addition to the collection. And, it may even make the best 6 of the year!
