    Fun stuff, fun stuff. But I have a jealous, as they say. We have no estate sales as you describe out here. An estate either turns it over to an auction company (which can sell the house, too) or the family has a bigger yard sale than usual.

    But at the estate yard sale you still get the items snatched back out of your hands as some member of the family decides it is not for sale or the price is wrong. I hate that!

    I had an auctioneer tell me once that when he has the time before the sale, he had each book opened and “shook” to make sure the family member hadn’t kept his spare cash there. I bet it doesn’t do the books any good at all.

    Fun article! Makes me hunger for the next sale. But Please have somebody proofread (“their” not “there”, “yuppie,” not “yuppy.” It takes away from your credibility.

    1. I’ll fix that right up Kathy thanks..
