Last week I spotted a bright pink sign in front of a nice little house on Winston, the by-pass street. I just had to stop and see what it said. I'm that kinda gal. It was a little late for yard sales so I wondered what it was.
Magic words: Estate Sale
Magic words scribbled in magic marker, with the dates wrong and no time. So I stopped and asked, very nicely, what time on Saturday the sale started. The nice gentleman said around 8am. Yipee!!!
My daughter, SmartA**, is in the process of purchasing a house. Set to close on Dec 27th. Hey, she needs furniture, therefore, we NEED to go to the estate sale. NEED to go, did you hear that SweetiePie?
So, I set the alarm and got up early. Had to wake SmartA** up because she forgot. She thanked me later.
Why would I thank Bruce for holding an estate sale? Because I don't think Bruce gets out much. He had things priced ridiculously low. Vtg dark oak bedroom set, twin bed(with clean mattress)$50, dresser $50, chest $50. Two vtg hooked rugs, one 8x10 and a small 3x5 for $25. A MCM blond wood bedroom set for
$125, bed, mattress, dresser, chest, two nightstands. Handmade wooden tables, $5 each. And on and on.
|Perfection in primary colors. Very light use, no chips!!!!|
|I had the scale already, but the other stuff I purchased for|
a grand total of $16. Oh, a plaid thermos in the back and
an old red, metal Thermos cooler, forgot to get a pic
|The leg had come unglued. We took the front fold down piece off |
to start cleaning. All of the pieces are there but need gluing and
|See the drawer on the bench behind the desk. Very ornate|
knobs. Got the drawer for the inside too and a shelf that
fits under between the legs
So, thank you Bruce. And if you ever feel the urge to have another estate sale, please call me.
