Once a year, the residents of Warkworth and surrounding area, come together to enjoy the Donnybrook Auction!
It is Northumberland’s largest reduce, reuse, and recycle event ! There was 10 Auctioneers selling antiques, collectibles, furniture, household goods, appliances, and hardware. Earlier in the day, there was a fill a box for $3 event in one of the barns.
In early June, we received a note in the mail asking for any donations to be put at the curb for pick up. These would be sorted and put up for the auction. Unfortunately, I forgot all about the donations, but I made sure to mark the date on the calendar.
Macki had a friend sleep over, so she came along with us to the fill a box for $3 event!
After dinner, Chyler and I headed back into town to attend the auction. Macki and her friend stayed home... hot arenas and smelly, sweaty people, no guarantee of actually getting what you want, um no thanks mom. Obviously, not my child!
Chyler and myself, did a quick walk through to see if there was anything good. We settled on the back corner where a lot of antiques were.
In a matter of just over an hour, I spent almost all of my money and had a truck full of treasures.
I cannot wait to attend next year!
P.S. Stay tuned for exciting news for Brickley 13&1
