Playin' hooky for estate sales

Hee hee!  Shhhh.  ;)  There was an estate sale I just had to go to yesterday.  I took some personal time...and headed on out super early to get first picks.  I pulled up, got a number, and a spot...

The view from my parking spot.
...pulled out some homework...

I'm taking a business class this semester.
...and waited for them to open.  I'm still new to this whole thing, so I kinda missed the starting gun.  :(  They started letting people into the outbuildings - which is what I was most interested in anyway - before the house - which is what the numbers were for apparently.

I missed out on a couple items (it was really a delay of maybe 3 minutes - geesh!) but that's okay.  I'm learning! :)  It's every man for himself and don't wait in your car too long.  I was trying not to be rude by hanging about the doors 1/2 hour before opening time since I had a number.  Well, now I know!  I haven't been to a lot of these things this early.  I prefer to just wander in whenever the mood strikes.

I plan on going again either tomorrow (today?) or Sunday to see if I can get any super good deals.  So I'll come back with more pics and share what I brought home then.  What about you?  Do you "estate sale"?

I've been to maybe two estate sales in my life, but they were ones I wandered up on by accident. Usually we're riding along and I see a crowd of people heading into somewhere, and I say: "Ooooo! Let's stop and see what they have!"..Then me and my hubby have 'that' conversation, abut how we don't need anymore "junk" in our house! LOL Then when he sees what I bought he goes on and on about what a good deal it was!...You know, 'those' conversations! LOL Anyway, I hope you find some good deals!
