So I thought I would start blogging about the estate sales I thought were worth visiting each week/weekend, if you're into that, and you live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Most estate sales run about 3 days, with mark downs beginning on the 2nd day of the sale. More than likely, you still find great stuff and you'll get it for a better price than I could have by being an early bird!
This morning, I went to 3 estate sales, and all of them had lots of 1950s-1970s stuff- Clothes, artwork, furniture, etc. That's a sweet era for me. All of these are in Dallas, mainly in the Lake Highlands area.

|vintage watch faces, and a few bands- 9 of them!!|
The next estate sale I hit was at 6840 Northridge. This one was put on by Clutterblasters. The name makes it sound like it's just a bunch of crap they ticketed to sale, but it's not clutter at all! Look what I found today... and there's still plenty to find once mark downs begin tomorrow!

And the last sale I hit today was at 10748 Eden Roc Drive. (Someone doesn't know how to spell! Roc? What? hahaha) Lucy and Ethel Do Estate Sales is the company that organized this one. Here's what I found there:
|carved wood box and fancy glass candle holder|
|small metal trivets and the coolest, ever!, toothpick holder|
|let's get a closer look at the toothpick holder!!! C'MON!!!!|
Although all of these estate sales were put on by companies rather than just a family, they're all the fair, non-snobby ones. Pricing is fair, the people are fun to talk to, and it's pretty well organized, but not too organized to take away all the fun of hunting! Oh and they don't charge sales tax like a lot of the people who put on estate sales do.
