RANDOM ESTATE SALE
before i go + forget. yesterday i did an estate sale the only day possible. 1st day. and still a liine to go in. only 10 in the house at a time. huge old 1880's or so brick home that had been a dr's house/office. looks like he stopped doing medicine in the 40's maybe. loved the deco xray machine. house was interseting, but dim and dusty and needed an airing. a GOOD WASH. full price, and not much i wanted anyways. but i did spend $4, will post my haul AFTER spring green. but here's the pics. i guess the house had been hidden by overgrowth in the yard. i bet it was stuck in probate. seemed it had been boxed up for decades i bet. i'd love to see the 'after' pics. and it was just blocks away from the framing shop i go to. my new roakill not ready. then off to organic food store. so, full day. his office was a pit. as was his little lab. why so few pics. maybe do a exterior shot before bay view frolics.
sunday lol cherch will be cancelled next week.
