During my Arizona visit, we once again spent some hours at Brian Lebel’s High Noon Auction of all things western.  Everything from authentic Indian beaded cradle boards, guns, western movie memorabilia, and spurs to famous maker saddles and more is up for sale at the right price.  You can go the day/s before and view some of what’s for sale in a small venue, which is also a lot of fun and much faster than sitting through an auction with hundreds of items!

There are free chocolate chip cookies available, one of our favorite parts, and a cash bar (not for us.)  People-watching is the order of the day as well.  You’ll see lots of turquoise, bolo ties, cowboy boots, fancy western wear, plenty mustaches, and, naturally, cowboy hats.  Here’s a little something spotted horsing aroud in the hallway, but also for sale.

    I have never been to an auction!

    I’ve never been to an auction. I’m imagining that it’s fun. Love the horse.

    • It can be, Dan. When I was little, Dad and I used to go to horse auctions and I loved those because of what was being sold. 🙂 This one also has items that I/we find interesting and that makes all the difference. We’re not there to buy, but just for fun. I’ve always been amazed at how quickly and continuously the auctioneers can talk!

    I always enjoy a beautiful carousel horse. 😀

  4. Beautiful horse. What a great place for people watching

    • It really is. There was one older man with a beard that was braided and hung about a foot or more down. I tried to surreptitiously get a photo, but the only one I got wasn’t any good. 😦


  5. Odd collection of things, but that had to have been a lot of fun.

    That carousel horse definitely has the western look down pat!
