Our first stop was not the greatest. There was no sign on the door and most of the house was already stripped of most of the items (by the family members). We did get a few things.
On the side of the stairs to the basement we saw what was left of the pencil sharpener!!!!
The GPS directions were really messed up for the next sale. We circled around some street where the numbers ended and finally we found the place after checking the cross streets on Craigslist. This one was just a garage sale rather than the Estate sale which it seemed to be in the ad. We did get a couple of things here though!
This is a sign for the third sale. It was a lot better than it looked. The interior was Miami Viced out (according to Monica). We got a lot of great vintage Christmas items here. We had to dig though a bunch of new Christmas items to get to them. We knew the Estate sale people from another sale that we call the "Mr. Ed" sale. The "Mr. Ed" sale had a split door leading from the kitchen into the living/dining room area. Rob poked his head through the door and said "Willlllllbur". The tag sale ladies remembered Rob right away and he was asked to do Mr. Ed impressions four more times today. He accommodated their request!
The next one had a lot of newer items in it. We managed to get a few cool items here.
Monica in the basement hoping to find something good.
Knotty pine, boomerang counter tops and old appliances (and the 1970's groovy wallpaper).
The wall oven was pretty cool.
A top loader dish washer! Super cool!
The man who lived here was a pediatrician. The house is a split level style and the Doctor's office was in the lower part of the house. Here is the bathroom floor in the office.
And here is the patient bathroom.
Another level down was the BAR! Rob is checking our the stirrers.
Rob crawled under to get to back to check out the barware.
Here are some items we got today!
Assorted books. There are three drink books from liquor stores. One is from The Farmer's Market that we both used to go as kids. Another was from "M & R Liquor Store". That is Monica and Rob!
A cool football game that Rob mentioned that he had "something similar when he was a kid" at the sale...twice... and that became the catch phrase of the estate sale while we were there. The ladies kept saying that Rob had a similar football game as a kid. A Santa plastic door cover still in the package. A bar aid that tells us how to make drinks (made in Japan). A newer rubber duck (we must get the duck). A serving tray that Monica had as a kid. Her mother ONLY used it to serve the canned shaped cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. Her sister uses hers for ONLY the canned shaped cranberry (Monica got it for her at a garage sale years ago). Now we have one that will only be used for the canned shaped cranberry sauce too when we host Thanksgiving at our house! It does show it on the outside of the box.
