The joys of estate sales

We went yard selling/estate selling on Saturday. We arrived at this one estate sale a little early, so we decide to walk up to the house and see if maybe they will let us in. The first thing the lady says to me when we walk up is "We don't open till ten" in a snooty voice. I smile and say, "Ok." (Tip- no matter how rude people can be, kill 'em with kindness. They might give you some good deals) Anyways, I am telling you about this estate sale because the house was HUGE. From the outside it looked like a 1800 sqft home, but it just kept going and going. This maze of a house was more like 3000 sqft. Annnnd it was made in the 1970s and not updated. LOVE! The architecture...well... they just don't make houses like that anymore. hhhh

There was about 15 people waiting to get in when they opened. I expected people to run in, but nope. No running. I did walk briskly. I say, Be aggressive! (not rude, there is a difference) But who cares if you look like an idiot when you are going to get the good stuff. Its not like these people will ever see you again. And besides, you will regret it later if you lose some great finds just because you were being shy. GO GET THE GOOD STUFF!
