Weekend Update - Estate Sales and More

Estate Sale in Buckhead
Yesterday was a picture-perfect day in Atlanta.  The morning started out at just over freezing and my trusty minivan's windows were covered with ice but the skies were crystal clear and bright!  I bundled up for a round of morning estate sales with a focus on the Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and Buckhead metropolitan areas.

I have been registered with EstateSales.net for about half a year and find it a useful site - they send messages 3-4 times a week with upcoming sales including photos of items for sale. I find the pictures give me so much information about the type and quality of items for sale.

I traveled to several sales (bought some great table-scape candles to add to my holiday decorating) before landing at the day's BEST and most INTERESTING sale.  The sale was located on Woodhaven Drive, at a huge home behind the Governor's Mansion in very upscale Buckhead (actually a neighborhood in the City of Atlanta).  The house was spacious and elegant and there were quite a few nice items for sale - most either already sold or pricey or both!

The motherlode for me was to find bolts of great fabrics at great prices (as little as $35 for 25 yards).   I purchased 4 bolts!

I joyously brought the bolts home and tried to get them into my "fabric room" before my husband noticed that I was acquiring even more fabric!

Needless to say, with successes like this, I will be out again today hoping for even more great bargains.  I do love the sales!
