The holiday season is not a good time for auctions. Either they get cancelled because people have something better to do, or they just have Christmas stuff for bids, or maybe the good items that might have been offered were used for re-gifting. That doesn't keep Hick from going to auctions, though. He just hasn't been buying much.
Saturday night, he sent me a couple pictures.
"Look what I got for $1"
Oh. So Hick must have paid a dollar for a chance on the prize table, and won, and picked a LEVI'S shirt. It's kind of cool, though it appears to be a woman's shirt, and not in Hick's size. Then again, it could be a man's shirt, with that design supposed to represent the RED TAB Levi's, which is all my dad would ever wear. Still doesn't look like Hick's size, though. But still worth a dollar.
What I DIDN'T know about this item, I found out on Sunday.
"How'd you like the mannequin I got at the auction for a dollar?"
"MANNEQUIN? I thought it was just the shirt!"
"It's a mannequin and a shirt."
Of course. That will be much more useful than just a shirt that doesn't fit...
Also, Hick sent a picture of another purchase:
His description for this one was: "train poster union stayion"
I'm not sure Hick understands what he bought. I don't really think that's a train poster.
