Reminder ~ Auction Tonight 1 Lexington Ave in Magnolia 6:00pm. Inspection starts at 4:00pm.

What are you doing tonight? Do you love antiques, sit glued to the TV when American Pickers, Pawn Stars and Storage Wars are on? Do you get up at 5am to be ready for yard sales? Want to go shopping at a venue that has unique one of a kind items? Looking for a special gift for someone? What if that place let YOU be in control of how much you pay? If any of this sounds like fun, you should head over to 1 Lexington Ave in Magnolia tonight for the auction being held by Cape Ann Auction. The sale is filled with antiques, jewelry, coins, furniture, glass & china and much more. It starts at 6pm, but inspection starts at 4pm and there’s a lot of things to see so you should get there early.

Without a doubt, this is our best auction of the year! The phrase something for everyone is often overused, but with this auction, it definitely rings true! If you like historical antiques we have hand signed presidential documents: Is fine art more your thing? We’ve got a great selection. How about antique furniture? Yep! Jewelry? Ditto! Glassware & China? Check!

Hi Joey,

My co-worker from China, Amphy, sent me the photo we took at Man at the Wheel. Though she didn’t have the GMG sticker to represent, I can vouch that she did indeed come to visit from China, based on the post from November, "Margaret Lee Representing! from Shenzhen, Guangdong, China." I’ve attached our co-workers group photo, and Amphy Chen is second from right.

So, you’ve got "there and back again" a full 360 degrees from 2 co-workers — or would it be 720 degrees??

China Folk Up In The Hizzy!-



Margaret Lee Representing! from Shenzhen, Guangdong, China

Hi Joey,

Recently came back from a company business trip to China. We were in Shenzhen, Guangdong province which is in southern China just above Hong Kong.


Here’s the map:


My co-workers and I were fortunate enough to mix pleasure with business, as our Chinese hosts were gracious enough to take us to some special places.

Here I am representing from Hong Fa Temple, in a beautiful area nestled in the high hills of Shenzhen. (Hopefully you’ll get the attached photos)

Thank you (Xiexie in Chinese) to our host Erica for taking us there!

Hope you can share this on the GMG blog. (Thanks for sending me the sticker so I could properly represent!)

Best regards and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

I’m not sure if this one is the furthest a GMG sticker has traveled or if it was Doug Brendel from Belarus Russia.

Thanks Margaret!!!!!!
