Estate Treasures Galore

I've finally emptied my car of the 1st load of boxes
from the Estate a few weeks ago...
Then I offered to help a friend with a moving
sale last week & my car is full again.....

It's amazing & actually
quite overwhelming the amount of
that I have to unpack & List on

I also have lots of Christmas 
Treasures that I am wondering when 
is best to list....

Do you think the week of Thanksgiving
wait till the week after???

What Do You Think?

  1. Nice finds. The busts are adorable. I don't know if there's a magic time to list your Christmas items. Either would probably be okay.

  2. Hi Cheryl,
    So nice to hear from you. And next summer... I writing it in my mental calendar. In ink... I hit an estate sale yesterday. Then I promptly went back three more times! Wow! Those babies are addicting. My best score was two handmade quilts for $2.50 a piece, and one in beautiful shape for $10.00. My mom is drooling for them. They are so beautiful.

    Love all your scores, I would maybe list them the week before Thanksgiving. I think people are looking for on-line presents at that time. I think they do that a little earlier than Black Friday, to allow for shipping times. And then if they have to ship the presents from their house...

    Have fun listing all your treasures. I think yesterday got me addicted to Estate Sales. It was a very good one. Very good. So good, I almost bought their tractor for my dad. My dad, who lives in the middle of the city. Let's just say it would have been a HUGE impulse purchase. I came to close, even getting out the checkbook and starting to write the check... Oh my...

    Have fun Cheryl. I do wish we lived closer. We could drive around looking for sales like two escapee's on the run. ( I didn't actually know what to put there, but you get the drift...) You and I would have fun together!

  3. Such awesome stuff Cheryl! You always unearth the best treasures. I can't think of too many things I enjoy more than going to estate sales with my daughters. Our only problem is that we all love the same things so I have to really sharpen my 'hone in' skills to beat them to it :)
    I hope you have been well and it was SO GOOD to hear from you!!!!
    hugs from me...


Thank you for visiting... Have a Happy & Creative day ~ Cheryl
