    My Estate Sale HAUL

    I just had to share my estate sale haul SQ(single quilter) died without a crafty family member to leave all her goodies to! They were literally giving stuff away. I stopped them from the biggest travesty of selling her artisan quilts for $20 each...I just about cried when I heard they had sold about $4000 worth of quilts for $400... I help them price out what the remaining stuff was worth, so they gave me an excellent deal.Name:  2012-09-02_19-44-34_978.jpg

    Yeah..I'm going to be having words with the 'lady' who bought the quilts, she knew how much those were worth and didn't say a penny and when she asked if $20 was reasonable she said "I think so"....It's one thing haggle and get something cheap...but to me that was just dishonest...not something I could have done..although I will be taking the embroidery machine off their hands for pennies on the dollar, but I did tell them what it was worth on ebay before we settled on a price!

    First of all, let me commend you for having the honesty and integrity to assist the family members by being up front with them on pricing. And then a big WHOOP of excitement for your haul.
