Thank you, Chris. 

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 16, 2014 at 12:00pm

We only turn them on for 'show' Betty. Although no one comes to visit except maybe our sons every blue moon or so.

Comment by Betty Proper on September 16, 2014 at 10:00am

Thank you, Chris, for the info.  Do you keep the lights on for extensive periods of time or just for "show" once in a while?  I am curious as to how long the batteries last.

Comment by Betty Proper on September 16, 2014 at 9:58am

Vicki, I have only ones with "regular" batteries.  I have some in my closet - and if I leave one of them on overnight a couple of times, the batteries are "goners".  But I bought those 2 or 3 years ago and I know that they are improving LEDs all the time.  I have a couple of clip-on LEDs for reading and while they do not go out out completely, they soon provide much less light;  I then give the AAA batteries to someone who uses them for another purpose.  I also find that the batteries in those tiny flashlights (3 AAAs) do not last very long.  I have a couple of plug-in LED goose-neck lamps that I like very much.

Oh My, That sounds great! and Yes, do check out the prints at your charity shops, they are often overlooked! Do you know who the artist was? Just curious if it was Currier and Ives, or Audubon? I've found both in the Salvation army, several years ago! :)

Thanks for the encouragement to! We have yet to sell a stick of furniture, and really need to move at least some of it! Geez Louise! I priced it very inexpensively too! It has been so tough to move lately - it's really hurting the biz! Hopeful, if nothing else, we can make up some with the fab linens and clothing - they just don't sell any where near the prices for larger pieces - drives me nuts!

All the young one's SAY they want the MCM, but it would seem none of them purchase anything - UGH!

Comment by Donna Cook on September 15, 2014 at 9:18pm

The economy is hurting everyone.  It's almost a miracle to sell anything.  I posted a pink bowl awhile back - Shirley just ID it for me it's a console bowl by Fenton -  Ming pattern  - $4 find looks like a $50 find.  I found a few nice pieces of jewelry.  I found a $3 Madame Alexander doll that sold for $110 - Bumblebee doll made for Lenox Lt Ed.    Today I talked to a man that told me he found a 1800's print at my GW for $4 a few months ago and he sold it for $22,000.  Now that's what I need.   It's a pickers dream.  Good luck wrapping up the Estate sale.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on September 15, 2014 at 9:00pm

Thank you very much Donna! Except most of it is already sold, as of today - LOL

As did the antique Razors, and TONS of beautiful linen and clothing. There are some really nice things here, but this is also an area heavy in "older Italian and Chaldean" folks, who dislike intensely paying the price asked - LOL

They will come back each day to "haggle some more" with us! Oh Well, it's the way of the world today, I guess!

Any good finds for you lately?

Comment by Donna Cook on September 15, 2014 at 8:45pm
Vicki - the Estate sale looks interesting. I'd love to look through the jewelry. You did a great job setting it up.
Comment by vicki hufstetler on September 15, 2014 at 8:32pm

I think those would be perfect! Thank you Chris and Betty! :)

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 15, 2014 at 8:24pm

Thanks Donna, this gives me (or Judy) a chance to group colours together on the shelves leaving room for clear in the big cabinets. Vicki, these use 3 AAA batteries each take a look at the link I posted to Betty, this may be what you're looking for.
