For the first time I happened to stop at an estate sale this past weekend. It was the second day of sales so everything marked was half the price. How I wished I'd have gone the first day because this was the home of a woodworker and a seamstress. One of the things I had to share was this sweet little doll bed. The above photo the bed is in the "holding area" purchased and I was bummed! When we were leaving the sale I saw a gal loading it in her car so I inquired if it was for her or a resale. I tell you it never hurts to ask because she didn't really want it and was going to paint it and sell it in her booth downtown. I was able to get this sweet little doll bed for $8. I took it home and gave it a good washing. I will make doll quilts and watch my "someday" grandchild play. Yep, that would be the inner little girl in me talking!
While this was my very first time at an estate sale it really was kind of sad to rummage through somebody elses treasures and keepsakes; the things they worked their whole lives for and then strangers come in and swoop them up like a bunch of vultures. It's truly heart breaking.
