A Hoarders Estate Sale!!

It's Saturday morning and my sister and I are heading out to find that ultimate treasures at the local estate and garage sales. I have mapped out 12 stops on my Yard Sale Treasures MapIf you have not tried Yard Sale Treasure Map you should try it...it will give you the garage sales listed on Craigslist in your area plus you can add the sales listed in your local paper then it gives directions to each one.  Sure makes finding the sales much easier!

We stop at the first sale which is only about 2 miles from my house, there are things in the yard, garage and all three floors of the house!  Inside the front door was the living room filled with boxes and things piles all over the floor, then to the right was a room filled about 3 ft. high with boxes and lots of clothes and just a little pathway to walk through!  I headed for the basement (I always find great things in basements) it also was filled with boxes loaded with all kinds of STUFF.  I started to load up my big bag with all the things I found interesting and thought I could sale on Ebay..nothing was priced..so with my arms and bag full I found someone to pay - I asked how much? She said what do you want to pay I said $5.00 she said OK.  WOW can you believe that!! She helped me take everything to my car then I went back into the house to find more treasures! 

I must have carried treasures out of the house 6 or 7 times with as much as I could get in that big bag and load into my arms and each time I paid only $5.00.   My sister also found lots of clothes most of which had never been worn.  OMG what fun we had! 

We had been there about 3 hours and my sister had to go to work so we left and had some lunch she when home and I headed back to that house!! Never did make it to the other 11 garage sales!

These photos are a few of the treasures I found

I'm keeping this lamp!

My husband wanted to go to this estate sale also so the next day Sunday we went back and I carried more things out of that house (the first photo of the car is from the second day!)  I asked if they would be having a sale the next weekend and was told this had been the 4th weekend of sales the other 3 where for family and friends!  I'm waiting for another estate sale like this one...so much fun!
