The 12th Annual Antique Show & Auction at the Lovell Historical Society, held this past Sunday, was a success. The new format, with the Live Auction held earlier in the day, seemed to work for everyone. The antique dealers were scattered throughout the historic Kimball-Stanford House and in the field. The dealers provided a variety of attractive and affordable goods for sale.
The auction began just after 11 under sunny skies and all seats were filled. Jay Hanson, Fryeburg Fair Auctioneer, successfully sold a number of exiting items, all of which were donated to the Society. Some of the more enticing prizes were Red Sox tickets, an airplane ride over Kezar Lake, Harvest Gold Jewelry, dinner at the Center Lovell Inn and a private dinner and beer cellar tour at Ebenezer's Pub. Molloy Energy donated 200 gallons of heating oil and Harry Nyberg had his truck filled with two cords of wood waiting to be delivered to the winning bidder.
After the auction, the dealers were busy with browsers and people lined up to buy lunch and to eat under the shady trees. In all aspects, the day was spectacular and successful!
