At least the abundance of greenery had been removed enough to see that there was actually a house there. The daughter and son of the owner (a lady in her 90s who is deceased) weren't very organized but they had been working. This was apparent from thelarge dumpster sitting in front of the property already partially filled. Apparently, there was a termite problem. Definitely ruled out any furniture possibilities.
When we pulled up, there was no sign of anyone at the house. A couple of other customers drove up, too, and we got out of our cars and discussed the fact there was no time given and no one in sight. A neighbor across the street heading out to work told us that the family members sorting out the items had been working until very late last night. Hmmm... not good. We got back in the car to wait awhile due to the mosquitoes. By 9:15 am, we decided to drive back down the street to Duane's house to see if the ad had been updated with a time and so that I could once again email the poster and let them know that people were waiting (tapping of feet) in the driveway for someone to show up and let them (and us) in. We drove back to the house and two of the other buyers were still there. At this point, a neighbor volunteered to call the family member(s). We decided to make a quick trip to Starbucks for take-out. All three of us needed caffeine and sugar. By the time we got back to the house, the owner's son and daughter were finally there.
The Humble Stitch Project for others to make into hats, scarves, gloves, etc.
Duane may check back again tomorrow to see if the daughter and son have had time to go through the rest of the items to see what else is for sale. It's very convenient for her since she's just two blocks away. This is what we love about estate sales -- you NEVER know what you'll find.
