Going, going, gone!

Year 5 had a fantastic time visiting Acorn Antiques, an auction house in Sawbridgeworth today.

Not only were we lucky enough to examine the lots and browse the catalogue, but were able to watch and take part in our very own auction.

The children placed bits (albeit rather frivolously), showed their paddles and won some interesting lots with a genuine auctioneer.

Before we left, we toured the adjoining antiques shop which allowed the children the opportunity to locate and investigate items of interest as well as gain an understanding of pricing structures for their own auction.
