I Love a Good Auction!

Thursday night my sister's work (The Etowah Scholarship Foundation) held there annual "It's All About the Bag" fundraiser. The first part of the event is a silent auction where over 50 handbags were up for bidding. I ended up winning this cute bag which retails for $129 for only $50. Whoo Hoo!
Next it was on the the live auction. I can honestly say I have never been that in to name brands especially when it comes to handbags. I mean why spend $200 dollars on the same thing you can get at Target for $20. I'm just saying? Anyway, the 1st item up for bid was a $500 gift certificate to our family photographer Brandy Shirley. I knew I would bid on this since we have pictures with Brandy next week. So the bidding was a little intense but I got the $500 photo package that came with this very posh Coach purse for a great steal of $375 for both items. I feel like a got a great deal on that one since we'll be spending the money on pics anyway. I suppose I'll enjoy the fancy Coach purse too. Hope no one gets the wrong opinion that I am into pricey things. I"m totally kidding, I don't care what they think. It was a fun night with great cocktails and good friends. I even got my picture on the front of our local newspaper the next morning. Autographed copies are available if needed. Hahhaha:)
