Mid-week I saw an “Estate Sale” sign as I was headed home after my daily walk in the park with my two dog friends. I stopped to see what was for sale. It was a professional Estate Sale team selling off the household of a lady who had moved.
There was jewelry, antique and contemporary furniture, LOTS of books. Lots of linens. Some Lalique glass that was lovely but way out of my price range.
I was tempted to buy the $10 TV/VCR. The program to record function on mine doesn’t work any more.
They didn’t have the manual and although there were three remotes none of them was the same brand as the TV. It was still hooked up to the Direct TV box so I really couldn’t test out the TV alone. They offered to drop the price to $5 but I felt it was too much of a gamble.
Then I started looking around in the kitchen where I found a 10 1/2 inch cast iron skillet, $6.
The food in the pantry wasn’t marked but seemed to be for sale too. When I enquired, I was told to just gather up what I was interested in and they would give me a good deal.
The cashier charged me a total of $10. $6 for the skillet and $4 for the food.
My next trip to the grocery store I checked the prices of the estate sale food. $44.09
I got a 90% discount! not bad:)
