What's a girl to do? You go to an auction with your grandson and there is an 1887 Mason & Hamlin Screwstringer Upright piano waiting to be given love by some wonderful person. Your grandson starts playing and your heart fills with joy. People come from inside the auction hall to see who is playing that beautiful music and your joy swells.
I'll tell you what a girl does...................she bids on that piano and gets it for $70. plus delivery cost and when it is delivered the next day, she is a very happy woman.
And look who found his home beside that very same piano..........the iron Gnome that was my Grandmother's and lived beside her piano when I was a child.
So if you like to go to auctions, I hope all your buys are as fun as this one has been for me.
I got to listen to 3 hrs. of beautiful music played by my grandson yesterday. I was in heaven.
Blessings to all,
