AmericanPressTravelNews-June 8th, Sparta, TN.–Barb and I love country auctions and as we have seen so does everyone else. The entire farm with more than 20-gorgeous acres, several tractors, a pickup truck from the late 1950’s in primo shape, saddles, tools, giant drills, all manner of farm implements and a collection of service station signs collected by the owner, now wanting to move to town as his age and health issues have crept up on him. The action begins as it did this time at precisely the time that is listed on the auction flyer. It needs to be on time and professional auctioneers know it if they are to be successful. Simpsons Auction Group is successful and draw a big crowd of locals, tourists, snowbirds with fun-farms and all manner of collectors, too. There was barbecue, ices (was pretty warm and lots of ice with color and sugar sold) and a nice festive, fun attitude prevailed. Some buyers were anxious, having driven in some cases for 100-miles more or less to bid on an old wood burning stove, a tractor, boxes of tools and what-nots, etc. We had fun, I bought a few wood working tools, a jack for all trades and a few old railroad items that I collect and decorate my barn with, until I too will be forced to give up my collectibles, someday too!! I only hope folks have as much fun as I did collecting as I do and did!!!P1070089
