Hello, My Friends!~~~
This has been a wonderful estate sale weekend!
First it began with a once-in-a-lifetime treat! I happen to work next door to a house which was having an estate sale this Fri-Sun. My good friend and "boss" called me on Thursday and asked if I wanted to come shop early. Let me think---YES! This little house was packed with tons of stuff. My friend told me the lady was a hoarder and that the house looked a lot cleaner when we got to shop. I bought $50 worth of goodies most of which I will use in future projects. It was a wonderful treat to get to go into the house and shop a day early. The next day (Friday) I worked for my friend in the morning and saw a huge crowd waiting to get in. I arrived earlier than I usually would to work so I could have a place to park on the street. When I left the street was one way with cars on either side all down the street.Whew!
But the sale I want to tell you about is one that Hubby and I went to in Alexandria, VA in thos wonderful neighborhood of mid-century modern homes! Silly me, I forgot to bring my camera. The estate sale was wonderful! Full of delightful little stuff that I love. I had to dig dig dig through some dusty, musty, boxes. It was nasty dirty grungy work, and I came out filthy on the other end. I poked around in every nook and cranny, got on my hands and knees, but who cares? I found two bags worth of fabulousness!
I got to the sale almost near the end of the day and was surprised at what I still found hiding at the bottom of boxes and drawers.
The gentleman running the sale took a brief glance in my bags and said: "I don't know...hmmm...you might not be able to handle what I'll charge for all of this." He smiled and said, "Four dollars...and twenty cents for tax."
I nearly passed out. Then I paid my money with a huge grin on my face!
~~~Hope you all hit an estate sale as good as this one!~~~XXOO, Beth
