I haven't taken you Estate Sale-ing with me for a couple weeks ~ so let's go to last week's biggest sale ~ and have a look around.
When I got there 2 hours before opening there were already at least 50 people waiting on the front lawn.
Seeing stuff all over the front porch, I had a pretty good idea that there was ALOT inside.
No, I didn't buy that iron urn on a pedestal by the front door ~ it was $90.
The elves were cute ~ but were plastic and broken. That tent has hundreds of molds to make ceramics in it!
There were also hundreds frames all over this house. All pretty uninteresting. I know some of you who love to make things with frames would have been in heaven.
And then the stuff really started........It was a ranch style house with probably 12 rooms full of stuff including the basement.
That is a tote full of doll hair!
This was a pretty "sunroom/greenhouse". I found 2 pieces of ironstone out here.
Over the years when I start out to a sale I often have no idea what it is going to be like....now sometimes with Estate Sales.Net and Craig's List I have seen pictures.
With this sale I had seen pictures ~ but the extent of the stuff was not fully captured!
I did find 3 nice metal urns buried in all this stuff and a few other small things.
Looking at peoples' stuff I try to figure out their STORY?
Were these people in the gift business?
Did they own a ceramics store?
Why did they have all of these faux flowers?
What is up with the wall of unused Christmas stuff?
What do you think? Would you have loved or....
hated this sale?
