Ok, so I did not spell saling correctly. I do know how to spell it, but, I consider going through these garage sales as much fun as diving and sailing in the Carribean. (Diving there is a favorite thing to do for me.) Ok, so I went to 4 or 5 places today and got some neat things and found some friends. My purchase had a wide range. There was the high end; an 18th century teapot New Hall teapot and tray, some sterling Gorham candalabras, a 6 board Queene Anne bootjack end NH blanket box, 18th century Darby platter… Well, I also got some newer things that all of us can relate to. My house is kind of eclectic and covers the gamut. On the newer side, I found a cool 5054 Victorian townhouse that was retired in 1982 by Depatment 56. I got a neat “Ponytail” 45 vinyl record full of Elvis records, a mostly complete occupied Japan blue willow tea set, some great earrings for my daughters AND wonderful clothes for the 3 girls at $2 an item. They loved the Abercrombie. (I prefer the pre bankruptcy Abercrombie Fitch collectibles, but time changes all.) Thus today was a hit for the entire family. I also intoduce you to Judy, an old friend. I ran into her today and she will be including her conducted sales on WorthPoint soon, as will another friend I ran into later today. So look forward to them in December when our conducted estate sale listings are added in the Buy/Sell area. It is too bad we did not have that up yet, as there was a vintage Edison victrola with the wax roll records at one of their sales today. A great item, but the crowd was not biting.
