This weekend I went to an estate sale in my neighborhood (actually went there 3 times, is that considered stalking?).

I know how difficult it is to loose someone close to you, so I have empathy for those that are grieving, and at the same time letting go of some of their loved ones "things".

This estate sale was run through a liquidator (which is a business I am thinking of getting into), but some of the family was there. I've been to estate sales like that before, and it's nice. You're not just buying "things", you are buying a part of someone's passion. It's great to have a story behind these items that we love!

I met the daughter's of the wonderful lady that this estate was being held for (and there was a tear or two). I also met one of the granddaugher's, Catherine, who told me her Grandmother was a beautiful lady, inside and out.
I enjoy the treasures I purchased, but I enjoy the stories behind them even more.
That is the real reason for my passion for antiques/vintage!
