Hello, My Friends!~~~
Just a couple of minutes from my house, I popped into a fun family run estate sale. They had orginally advertised the sale beginning tomorrow (Saturday) but their sign advertised the sale starting today. I only saw it because the house was on the way to the post office where I was headed. I did a fast (and safe) quick left turn, parked, and fast walked up to the door. And would you believe it? I was the only one and the first one there!
The family running the sale couldn't have been nicer. They were spread out all over the house, giving rock bottom prices on everything I touched. But what I mostly touched was the array of vintage Christmas in the basement. I asked one of the guys down there how much and he dashed up stairs to ask his sister. I slowly stacked boxes of ornaments praying the price was right as I waited for the guy to return. He stomped back down the stairs with a large empty box and said: "If you take all of the Christmas it's $20 for everything." He didn't have to tell me twice. He was so super nice helping me stack the ornament boxes into the box he brought down, and he and his son hauled that box and the two others of vintage Christmas to my car before I even paid!
I poked around all alone at the sale, not believing I had the house to myself, like a private sale. I found more treasures for nice prices, but the Christmas goodies, which I need badly for use in future crafts for two shows I'm doing this holiday season, was the real score.
Allow me to buy and brag here and show you what $20 worth of vintage Christmas from the "private" estate sale looks like:
Lots of lovely vintage ornaments, light strings, and tree stands!
A great stash of holiday cheer destined for fun holiday creations!~~~Thanks for stopping by!~~~XXOO, Beth
