I have always wanted to attend an estate sale, but just never did for some reason or another. About a month ago, Big M was out of town and I was up early, so I decided that day would be the day to attend. I threw on a hat, hit the teller machine for cash and Starbuck's to get my blood flowing with some caffine.
I pulled up at the estate sale about 10 minutes early. It was still cold, so I decided I'll sit right here in my warm car - needless did I know estate sales have a sign up sheet. The clock struck 7am and I made my way up to the home. Not having a clue what I was doing, I walked around lesiurely in the home. To my dismay, things were disappearing and sold stickers were appearing everywhere within minutes.
It only took one sale and I had figured out the ropes. I knew the next time that I needed to arrive early, sign in, have a tote bag on hand to collect my loot and an ink pen for sold stickers. The next Saturday rolled around and I was off. Arrived early and made some scores. I was hooked. From that Saturday on, I have been scoping out the sales and making a plan of attack, which has become my Saturday morning ritual.
Here's some of my scores...
