The next one was people who buy storage spaces that people have stopped paying rent on and then sell the contents. We went because there was a ton of teacher stuff. Stephanie got a bunch of checkers games and a ton of stickers. 6th graders LOVE stickers- even the boys. I love the 6th graders and I will miss teaching them!
The last one was a real estate sale, run by a company, but the prices were reasonable. Stephanie saw a cute set of china for 75 bucks. It was a brown pattern with different views of houses, like a farm house, or a French Quarter house, etc. There were about 3-4 different images. This was the cutest:
That's just the picture, there was no coffee pot. So she decided to think about it while we looked at the other stuff.
This was the awesome wallpaper in the kitchen!
By the time we were done looking, Stepanie decided she liked the china and made me go make an offer. But some lady had bought it, WHILE we were looking around! Stephanie was sad. Lesson learned- there is no time for thinking at estate sales, you have to snatch up what you want asap!
Angie, a reader, sent me an email and suggested I should do a post on how to find good garage/estate sales. I would like to, if anyone else is interested, and then we could have a discussion and you could leave your tips in the comments! Anyone down for that?
Have a great 4th of July weekend!
