Charles - Florida is beautiful in springtime.  Gardens are abloom and the last of the Northerners selling at flea markets. Garage sales are in swing and more than our share of thrift stores open for business.

Staying ahead of the trends in collecting is a key. Lots of collectables coming back into popularity - (but I'm keeping quiet until its time to sell).

I'll be doing the PBS Antique Road Show here in June.

I was thinking of getting take-out food or pizza the day before and put it in the fridge. I can just nuke it a few secs when I get hungry. Thanks for the suggestions.

Lillian, When I  sell at flea markets/ trrade days, I have my cooler with sodas, water, snacks, and lunchables.  Everything is with me in my booth or spot.  Perhaps this will help you.

Does anyone have any tips on how to handle meals when doing an estate sale? I am at my house, so I have access to fridge & stove, but last year I burnt up a batch of tater tots when I got busy with customers. I only remembered them when the smoke alarm went off. After that, I vowed not to have meals that require time consuming or time critical preparation since I am alone. Beverages are not a problem. I always keep a goodly amount of soft drinks on hand when I am having a sale. It's the solid food. I'm looking for things that can be eaten out-of-hand with little or no fuss.

I am in the "Twilight Zone" of merchandise - it's too old to be new and too new to be antique; too fancy to be utile and too plain to be artsy. I have a large Bennington Pottery bowl ($10), when I see people pick it up and look at it, I point out that it's Bennington. They usually respond that "It's too plain."

Thanks for the tips, guys.

For clothing just make a sign - With the info listed - rather than pricing everything individually. Shirts - Skirts - $3

                                                   Dresses     -       $5

etc. I agree w/ Charles - you do need prices - at least signs with prices, because otherwise they will walk away, thinking your going to want a lot for stuff. It also unnerves me, when going to flea markets etc. If I see that dealers don't price their wares - I want to know if I can afford, or even make an offer on some things before I ask.

Hopefully, w/ your Aunts things you will do better this year! :)

lillian, that might be the problem no pricing,

It's over for at least 2 weeks and I'm exhausted. It took me over 2 hours to pack up yesterday. When I did I found the horn of a slag glass bull broken off and the top to a cruet also broken off just where it goes into the bottle. Whoever did this never "fessed up". I also did see may people drop and knock over things. Is this the year of the "clumsies"? One woman stopped and looked at the ladies clothes I had and asked the price. I said that dresses were $5, blouses and skirts were $3. She looked through and pick out a blouse and handed me $1. I told her the blouses were $3. She replied that I had told her $1. I tried to compromise with letting her have it for $2 and she still said that it was too much. She finally relented, but she was very snippy afterwards and wouldn't pay $1 for an exercise ball the boy with her wanted to get. She said to the other woman with her "C'mon, let's go. This place is a rip-off!" Imagine all that consternation over $1! She looked like she could well afford anything. She was impeccably dressed and groomed. A lot of people complained that there were no prices on things. I just have too much to put tags on everything. I figure if they're interested, they'll ask.
