There are auctions year-round but the warm weather brings out the terrific auctions. I'm talking about the all day, stand in the sun out in a field, pee behind a bush auction. NO BUYER'S PREMIUM auctions.
I find some of my best items at auctions that last all day, if it is raining the deals are even better.
We also take more buying trips during the warm weather and you never know what you are going to stumble upon when you are out and about.
You might consider just taking a short day trip to some town near you and pick up a local paper to see if there are any auctions or sales that sound promising. It might prove to be well worth you time and effort.
I always come back more relaxed and ready to tackle the chores that are waiting at home for me.
