I have become addicted to estate sales over the past four years as a hobby that is hard to put aside. The thrill of finding something exciting is certainly compelling, and I find that the most appealing items are glass and china items plus old sheet music. Over this time, I have found a number of really nice items including depression glass, a set of Gone With the Wind plates, and an old Mae West piece of sheet music. To really do well in finding things at estate sales requires a lot of studying to be sure that I really know which items are real and which ones are fake. As a hobby, I spend 2-3 hours each weekend just looking at websites, at Ebay, and other sites where I can find antiques and learn how to recognize them. In the rural area where I live, there are an increasing number of estate sales and auctions as older people sell their homes; and I have found some amazing bargains from my selected areas of interest. It would be great if there was one web site that provided a catalog of depression glass patterns; however, I have not found that yet. If anyone knows a good one, I would appreciate the information.
