Love to antique-shop but hate the high prices? Why not try an auction?
We followed the signs to an auction by Shorty Ehman. It was a household sale with a decent amount of antiques. The prices seemed very competitive. Shorty made it very easy for "newbies" and everyone there seemed very friendly and helpful.
Also, lots of garage sales in the area on Saturday!
Check the local papers (Stillwater Gazette, Hudson Star-Observer, Tri-County Advertiser) for listings.
