a conclusion about people

scarf: Express shirt: F21 skirt: PacSun bracelets: antique & F21 shoes: Go Jane

I have come to the conclusion that people are nuts. Bonafide insane. What made me come to this conclusion? Going to my first ever estate sale. However, this was not just any estate sale. This was like "operation drain these people of their money" estate sale. This event was going on Friday and Saturday for a few hours each day. I was on the late train because I went on Saturday. While we were waiting in line to go in the house, yes a LINE, people were saying they had been there since 7:30, had gone on Friday as well, and spent over $300. Am I convincing you yet? Also, there is a number and bidding system on items. As you arrived, you received a number. That number was the order you would be let inside the house. If you found something that you liked, but it wasn't the price you were willing to spend, you could write down a bid, and they would call you if you won. At that time, you would return and pick up your purchase. All a bit too technical for this traditional garage saleing girl. As soon as the doors opened, people flooded the house, marking anything they saw with a sold sign without a hesitation of "can I afford this?", or " is it good quality?" Nope, they just had to have it, because, if they didn't, someone else would come up and take it. That's the way they steal your wallet; it's all psychological. In the end, I didn't end up buying anything, probably because I was too shocked by what was going on. Please let me know if you've attended one of these events. If I haven't convinced you yet, well, maybe I'm the crazy one.

Happy Monday!

I have been to a number of estate sales before...but none as crazy as this! There are always those that seem to have "hoarding tendencies" at yard sales, estate sales ect....but my goodness, I probably would not have purchased anything in between the chaos either! lol

Your whole look in this post is.amazing. by the way . You rock that topknot look!

That is nuts! I haven't been to one but it reminded me of when I went to the library book sale at my town. There was a line formed out the door beforehand, then when it opened people ran in, grabbed whatever books they saw only to then sort thru their pile to see what they wanted to keep or not. NUTS!
