Another Great Estate Sale - Another Beautiful Pink Bathroom! Status: Got What I Went For.
No...I didn't buy this AMAZING pink Caloric Range...but it was Seriously hard to resist!
Isn't that an amazing range and fridge? The fridge sold right away. I had made my
round through the house (I was third in line today) grabbed the tags off the few
things I knew I had to have then made my way back through with the camera. I
made it back down to the basement within 20 minutes of getting in and the fridge
was sold. I had to ask the buyer if he would wait a second for me to take a pic of it
before he started moving it out! Someone pulled the tag off the range right away
too but by the time I got back to it to photograph it they must have taken a look at
the steps they'd have to negotiate to get it out and changed their mind. It was
$300 and still there when I left at about 10:45am.
Then of course there is what I was Really After! I got up early and arrived at just a
few minutes after 8am. There was a couple who had arrived just a few minutes
before me so they got in first and second. The people running the sale gave out
numbers so there was no messing about with who was where in line. Plus we all
got to wait in our cars or where ever we chose. And there was a LOT of people
there. The last line number I spotted was 42.
I was pretty excited about the black lounge chair but it was marked at $110 and it
wasn't an Overman like I had hoped...or at least it wasn't marked as such. It wasn't
a high quality chair anyway. The vinyl felt cheap. I passed. The other item I wanted
pretty bad was the Cherry Red Weber Kettle. I was not disappointed! It was $45
and in Very VERY great condition! The sellers said it had only been used twice.
It's a very early example too. After I do a little research I'll feature it and my other
The only other thing I picked up was a set of three stacking tables that I'll also be
featuring soon enough. They have great blue "marble" looking tops. I had to get
out of there and back home to unload so I could go pick up a Heywood Wakefield
table and chairs that I got a lead on earlier in the week. I also picked up lots of
cool stuff during the week. Man, I got lots to share with ya'll! Plus the Girlfriend,
Illuminate and I are hitting the Wentzville Flea Market tomorrow (well, today I
guess!) morning. Whew!
