I was with my father, I was about 12 or 13 and we were at our favourite auction house. It was love at first sight. This bureau and I were meant to be together
I first attended an auction with my father when I was about 11 or 12. It was instant love. The atmosphere was exhilarating. I was fascinated by the assortment of items on offer, from tools, furniture and household items to the fine china, art work and delicate jewellery and accessories.
After re-arranging furniture I decided I needed a filing cabinet or set of drawers to keep files, papers, bits and pieces and paraphernalia in. This afternoon I took a break and a short walk down to my local charity shop, on the off chance that they would have something suitable going for a song!
