|First sale. Cool terrazzo floors.|
It was a cool mid-century house with pretty terrazzo floors. The house wasn't very big but the lot was huge and there was a big kidney shaped swimming pool, a workshop, and a gazebo in the backyard. I was the only one who bought something at this one -- a DVD. The owner had great taste in movies but I had already seen or owned most of them.

Then we hit the last of the three sales which was much further to the northwest of town. It was being held in a really nice retirement/assisted living type of place. I had been to a couple of sales there before but decided that it wasn't a great place for them because people looked like they had already downsized before moving in. However, the person or persons who had lived there had great taste in movies and books. Duane and Linda both bought books. I bought another DVD. Once again, I had already seen most of what they had but we certainly shared the same taste!
This house also had a beautiful wood chest made by Lane. I'd love one of these if I had a place to put it. Our buddy David currently has a gorgeous one in his store, A Modern Line, and I've drooled over it the last couple of visits.

|Books and movies.|

We made our way back to a Panera's to get a snack and stretch our legs. Honestly we were in the car longer than we were at the sales. Maybe next time the estate sale gods will be in our corner.
