Garage Sale, you say

by - Thursday, June 19, 2008

I guess rich folks have garage sales just like the rest of us. My friend Toni sent me this link. By the looks of the goods on sale, you won’t be finding any “2 for $1” tables anywhere. You could probably find some good deals though for high quality pieces at less than astronomical prices.

I’ve never been to an estate sale, though I always tell HandyMan we should drop by ones we’ve seen advertised in Rosedale or Bloor West Village or other hoity-toity areas of the city. I did score this chandelier though years ago on ebay. Supposedly it came from an estate sale in Kentucky. It only cost me $45 so its lofty provenance was doubtful. No matter. It looked smashing in the old condo. But with all the renos going on in the new house (and the lack of any progress in renovating the bedrooms), the chandelier currently sits wrapped in blankets in my basement. What a shame. Let’s get a move on, HandyMan… I want to hang up my pretty little light.

  1. Oh, I'd love to go to an estate sale but Im not sure how to find where they are. Ive never seen an ad in the paper for them or anything like that. You should totally go - you never know what you might find!
