Othery auction of goods and promises 21st March 2014 - Somerset Flood Fund

The only problem with posting photos of some of the lots is that I'm now looking around my living room wondering how many paintings and prints I can put on my walls!

So, I will be tweeting and updating my blog with photos live from auction HQ on the day, but these are the ones I have managed to get my hands on so far.

Sorry guys, they aren't in order as I'm trying to get this done and out there for people to see - I will try my best to re-order it tomorrow for you, but I also have to drive to Somerset after work and a night out!  Yep, poor planning on my behalf!
