Lights, Camera, Auction!

It’s a banner week month for fans of vintage in Toronto this week. First up is Waddington’s Quarterly Jewellery Auction on Wednesday night (previews on Tuesday). I’ve been outbid the last couple of auctions, but maybe this will be the year that I finally land a Cartier Tank Francaise! Then, on next Thursday, local purveyors of previously enjoyed fashions, findings and furniture Mrs. Huizenga, Gadabout, The Arthur, Fair Judy, Karenfoundit and TFCO are banding together to auction off some of their excess goods.

I’ve been saving my pennies (or nickels, now) in the hopes of getting some awesome scores, but I won’t be unhappy if you outbid me as long as you let me examine your finds.
