It’s a sad day when your favourite auction house closes down. I discovered this morning that the Mitchell Road Auction Centre – home to many a hidden gem, is clearing out. I’ve found some great jewels amongst the piles of furniture and bric-a-brac over the years. Unfortunately, what used to be a fantastic collection of assorted items, today resembled a rubbish dump…people scavenging like vultures for bargains amongst the rubble. RIP Mitchell Road…I shall gaze at my armchairs with fond memories.
