Estate sales are aways great places to find treasures. Yesterday I went to an estate sale and came home with some of the treasures in these pictures. I got to the estate sale a half an hour before they opened the garage and was given the number 79 to get into the sale. That meant there were 78 people ahead of me. While that appears to be a discouraging bit of news I have discovered that this first group of diehards that often get there ahead of me(sometimes they are there a 4 and 5 oclock in the morning) usual leave me opportunities to buy enough product.
The garage and basement are always my first favorite places to go. Cj usual heads to the bedrooms to look over fabric and vintage clothes. We have discovered that while we have to have to move quickly and make decision just as quickly it is also important to spend a lot of time looking over a crowded room very carefully. It is so easy to miss things. Often, the items that sit on the floor under tables have some of the best overlooked treasures.
Well, there are lots of Estate sales in our area this week so I need to run. But, I will report more this week about what we find. We are trying to place a number of our finds on Ebay or Etsy. We be can found on ebay under the name HATTIEMAEVANDAFF and on Etsy under the name HATTIEMAE. Take a look you may found some of our treasures from this sale.
