Default A collectors estate sale

This one will make you break those vows not to buy anymore sewing related items. The sewing stuff start at photo #576 and go through the end.

Some of those pictures definitely show that the stuff was "staged" for the pictures. (I'm thinking about the one with the the peach colored buttonholer and the vase of (pretty sure those are fresh) roses. And they still have the machines backwards!!! It's just so sad.

That's the new thing in estate sales. They stage the photos to get your attention. They also the houses to the best of their ability. This is evolved as the national estate sale websites have come about. I assume it's happening nationwide, but it's happening here, for sure.

My poor computer had a nervous breakdown trying to get to #576. It "died" after the 1st 100. I had to reboot twice for it to recoop. Whew!! Did these people live in a warehouse? I thought I had a bunch of useless stuff!

Two wonderful estate sales that I attended come to mind:
1. the sale of the man who owned and operated the Singer sales and repair shop - tons of stuff!
2. the sale of a lady who taught the classes in a Singer sales and repair shop -- can you believe I found 2 FW walking feet in a box of other Singer treasures in a box in the back bedroom?
