I went to a few sales this weekend. On Saturday I went to one I had never been to before. It had actually started the night before with an extra entrance fee, but since I had never been before I just waited until the next morning to shop. I almost never go into the "Treasure Room" or the "French Room" at a sale because they are usually more than I like to spend and much of the merchandise is too "fussy" for my taste. There is also usually a long line and wait to get in. Since this particular sale was not very crowded and there was no line to get into the "Treasure Room", I went in. Not too much there. Ornate dishes, crystal, etc. My eyes glanced around the room and I spotted something from afar. As I walked closer I was in disbelief. It was like I was on my own "Antiques Roadshow" in my head. You know, the Keno brothers were on the other side of the room... Anyway, it was a Charley Harper serigraph. I never thought I would have the pleasure of owning my own Charley Harper. In fact, I was pretty damned excited when Borders was closing and I found a copy of the Todd Oldham book at a discounted price. I am easy to please. I could not believe that it had not been purchased the evening before.
I am now the very proud owner of a "Round Robin" serigraph.
