The next estate sale was really an estate sale! YAY! It was located at 6261 St. Albans in Dallas. Although there was nothing there for me, there was some good stuff marked at good prices. There were lots of china sets...

When I first walked in, I saw a little table with some nicely displayed jewelry on it. Nearby, there was a couple digging thru a big bag of jewelry. I realized they had swiped up just about all that had been on the table to sift thru all for themselves. When they decided which pieces they didn't want, the man just sorta wadded them up and threw them back on the jewelry table. SO RUDE! If I had been working at the sale, I'm pretty sure I would've gotten ugly with them. After they weeded thru their bag o' jewelry a second time, there was one more piece they wanted to discard. The man tried handing it to me and sorta nodded over at the table as if to say, "Throw it over there". I instead, I just looked at him and said, "Um, no, A-hole. Just put it back yourself." (Ok, am only acting tough. I didn't really call him an a-hole. But in my head I did.) Then the lady working there got the beads he was trying to cast off to me and said, "I'll just go ahead and reorganize it since he made such a mess of things." But she said it sweetly, and she just went about her business and was so nice to everyone she encountered. Props, Lady! You got way more tolerance than I do!
If you like blue and white china, go to this place! There was more of it there than I've ever seen.
|Just one cabinet full, but trust me- There was lots more!|
|Joy to the World!|
Here were the little somethings I found...
|another lipstick holder because I just can't pass those up. Ever!|
|An angel bell- because I collect bells, and Mom always collected angels. This one made me think of her.|
|vintage necklaces, bracelets, and beads|
