On the Saturday night we had an auction which has become the highlight of the weekend. The majority of the pieces are Originals or my `Working Samples` I take to the factory to work from. I try to only sell `special` pieces like my very first `Cookie Cutter` pieces and my first `Prim Doll`. My first `Gothic Prim` went into the raffle. I also included my first large sized `Prim Dolls` including `Pumpkinella` who I had a hard time parting with.....but she went to a great home, as did all the pieces....which makes it so much easier!!
All my other `First` Cookie Cutters went into the Raffle.
The prices for the pieces this year were really high and I was really `blown away` by some. Auctions are funny things, sometimes the prices go crazy high and other times you can pick up a real bargain....no bargains this auction! I think the prices show more about the collector`s than the artist. They were are a bunch of good people who wanted to show me their support as I change direction slightly.
