Tomorrow, now that's another story. I'm planning on checking out an estate sale that has vintage dresses listed as something that is being sold. I'm not a fan of Estate sales in winter because it's cold out and you basically are standing outside freezing as they auction stuff off. It's very rare that there are estate sales in the winter and this one is listed as only lasting 2 hours. Plus, there are no picture to show what kind of vintage dresses are being sold. So, vintage dresses could mean anything from 1900's-1980's. It's a real hit or miss kinda thing. The one thing that is nice about not listing pictures is that less people will attend. Unlike me, if they can't see what they're driving an hour for they won't bother driving just to look! Not me! I'll drive an hour just for a look because you just never know and the surprise is half the fun...I love a good surprise and the unexpected!
A five years ago, I went to an estate sale that had listed they were selling vintage clothes. No pictures just a listing in the paper. So off I went to have a look see. OMG what a selection of clothes from late 30's-80's! It was a little old ladies whole life in clothes!! I bought everything for $230 bucks. To my surprise a lot of the clothes fit me. I also sold some on ebay. I still have some yet to go through. Here are some of what I found! No drooling on your keyboard! Remember all these great clothes came from one estate sale and was sold to me as a complete lot! I would also like to point out how RARE it is to come across a find like this...if certain dealers would have shown up that day, I would have never gotten all this for what I paid. I was very lucky!
