Charlie and I have been to quite a few estate auctions through the years but we had never been to an estate sale until this past Friday. When we arrived a little early, there were a few people there already. I overheard a couple of people from the neighborhood talking about what a wonderful man he was and how sad they were that he had passed away.
Upon entering his home, I started to look around and began to feel sad myself. I didn’t even know this man but my heart ached that all of his personal things were literally just thrown everywhere. And when I say everything, I mean everything…..it truly was a mess! Charlie caught up with me inside the home and I quietly shared with him how I was feeling and asked him if he was ready to go. He said he was but there was one thing outside that he was interested in. It was a set of car ramps. When we were leaving, I noticed these four wicker plate chargers that were sitting in a box all by themselves.
Of course, I picked them up and thought to myself….maybe I was meant to buy them because they were the only thing that didn’t seem tarnished.
I know that many of you have been to estate sales. Are they like that in your area? I don’t know if they are all like that here or if it just happened to be this particular company that was doing the estate sale.
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
