** NEW NOTE:  due to compleeeetely unforeseen circumstances, the relatives of the family are keeping several items and have been removed from the list below.  The items previously listed and now “not available for sale” are the 2 cream couches, a Trek bicycle, the teak furniture, and the pool table.   Thank you, everyone, for your understanding and look forward to seeing you Wednesday!

Allow me to share the joy that I am fortunate enough to call my ‘job’.  The homeowners of this sale are an older couple ~ second marriage for both with a genuine love and respect for each other, which, in itself is a blessing to witness.  On first morning setup, we had the privilege of hearing him share his life story; began working at age 13, lived through 2 wars, lived on 35 cents to a dollar a week as a veteran doing any job he could get his hands on and would take ketchup from restaurants to eat as meals.  Through a strong work ethic, he worked his way up in a trucking company and then took off, quite successfully, on his own.  Reminded me of my dad <misty>  Sooo much more to this, HIS story, but wanted to share as a reminder that when you attend Estate Sales … when we have the great fortune to be invited in to someone’s home, into their family, into their world … that there is a story there.  A life.  Thanks for letting me share 🙂
