I am really trying to bulk up my inventory before upcoming fleas this August and September, and scouting with my little four door Hyundai Accent is really not cutting it. I keep having to make multiple trips after I scratch, ding, and peel the rubber off the car doors trying to fit furniture in that just won't fit. I am also combating my own irresistible desire to keep almost everything I find...
|YAY! How adorable is this?|
* Which leads me to a little sidenote:
* I met the nicest people at Sassie's Glenview estate sale this weekend. After the owner's husband tried his hardest to fit this desk into my puny car, a lady who lived somewhat near me offered to put it in her hatchback and drive it to my house for free! How nice is that! Not only were they extremely nice, but the people running the sale were nice to - friendly, and super helpful. I've been to estate sales where the people won't do as much as hold a door open for you while you drag six typewriters and a chair out, let along help you carry them and put them in your car. As a woman who goes to these sales alone when Mr. KnickityKnack can't come, I really appreciate that kind of customer service/ kindness. Thanks!

|Beautiful, girly jewelry boxes and such...|
Well, I pretty much want to keep all of this in my house... I would love to use the desk as my sewing stand, but right now it is next to this mid century buffet, and they look really weird together so I might need to find a way to make it work...
