    Enabler Alert

    Anyone close to this estate sale should check it out. Huge amount of quilting goods, rulers, ect. Oh why do I have to live in the cold of Alberta.

    Either the woman was a hoarder or she was conducting classes and selling from her home. A lot of stuff was unopened items that were never used on the walls.

    Sometimes with an estate sale it is handled by professionals and they include what wasn't sold at other sales. I knew a single lady that didn't use woodworking equipment, however there was all kinds of tools and saws.
    Texas is a bit too far too.

    Looking closely at the picture, I didn't see anything I don't already have.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    The above comment is hilarious!
    This is a bit off topic but sorta similar: we were at an antique shop that was so jammed with stuff that you really couldn't see anything. I couldn't wait to get out of there. That's what this pic reminded me of.

    Jeez...I was kind of sad thinking about how these things probably meant a lot to this woman...and then she's accused of hoarding and selling...hmm...wonder how many of us could pass that smell test?

    I am going! Just 30 minutes away! I hope that lady loved every minute she spent collecting and using all of that.

    I would love to go. It is a 6 hour drive for me and I have to work. So sad I can't go.

    Wonder if the people did a lot of online shopping for so many things to be new and unopened.
    A friend has a neighbor that buys a LOT of dolls from QVC, just because she has money and likes dolls.

    I have been taking a lot of things from my house to an online auction place, as I want more room, I do not miss those things.

    I think it's a bit sad that all those goodies weren't taken care of in her/his will. Guess maybe no one in the family quilts or sews. Good reminder for us to think about where our stuff is going next.
