I agree w/ Charlene - That lady was a real "PITA" in my book!

Just who does she imagine herself to be I wonder, and has she ever tried to run a HUGE estate sale before? I think Not!

Charles - I'm sure you did a fantastic job! and it shows by the comments made by normal, appreciative folks! WTG!

Charles, you are so right in trying to let those negative people just run right off our back, but it can be difficult.  You know from all the posts from "Ann" she is a crabby, unhappy person.  And probably jealousy plays in there somehow.  She has no idea what it took to liquidate that estate and that your responsibility is to the estate and by doing it in whatever way you felt was best to gain the most for the famile/heirs/estate, etc, you did your job well. Pat yourself on the back and say a prayer for Ann, because she sounds very unhappy (and not very busy with her "business" if she has all this time to keep responding and criticizing :)

I've been trying to persuade our community government to combine the "village wide garage sale" day with Family Day since people would be coming into town for that anyway. I haven't heard anything positive yet.

So the chick didn't even know where she lives Lillian? LOL

Welcome to today, common sense may be lost for good, oh brother!

I don't know about the other's here - but that lamp would probably not sell in this area - it's very dated looking, and Rattan in particular doesn't go well here. I wonder if you just took the shade off, exposing the globe instead, you might have better luck?   

I'm sorry your having such a bad time there - I think I might just have one big huge sale with the whole lot, and donate whatever is left over, it's so much work for you, not sure it's all worth it?

I received a phone call this morning from a woman that saw my ad in the local classified ad magazine. She said she could come "right over" when she could locate transportation, but her phone ID indicated that she lived in a community about 175 miles away. I asked where she was located and she said "right down the road." I was confused. I told her, going by the info of her phone number, that it would be about a 350 mile round-trip for her. She was emphatic that she was just about 2 miles away, so I gave her the name of another close town near me and she said she never heard of it. Now I don't know if there are two towns in New York State with the same name or what. She said she'd call back when she could get a "guy with a truck", but so far she hasn't.

Would $25 be a reasonable price to ask for this floor lamp? It's just under 5 ft tall,  and there's a white glass globe under the large rattan shade. It's in working condition. The base and the shelf have some rusty spots (a few squirts of white enamel pain would cover them nicely).

After spending many cold, fruitless hours waiting for people that don't show up to pick at my aunt's estate, I now call them the morning of they day they promised to be there. When they call me from an advert I ran, I will have their phone number on my caller i.d. box. Most of the time they act like they don't even remember making the appointment (this explains a lot). What's going on with people's minds?

Brenda - good comes from good.  Glad you have a nice vending place that began with a good thought.

 

cheers

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on February 23, 2013 at 7:29pm

Two reasons she couldn't come - she was taking care of elderly people and couldn't leave them alone, plus she worked from 7am to 9 pm. Too early and too late for me to wait for her to show up. Plus my sidewalk and driveway are icy. I didn't want her to come in darkness to an area she is not familiar with and skip on the ice.
