Estate Sales

Matt and I recently got into going to estate sales (and by "recently," I mean last weekend...). 

There is something so creepy about it. Just walking through someone (who probably recently passed away) else's house and buying their stuff. The first one we went to had everything (and I mean EVERYthing) still in it's place. You could literally walk into this woman's closet and buy her grandma-looking clothes right off the hangers. This particular house also had some really great deals. There was a HUGE brand new sectional in the upstairs area that had a sign on it for $1400. Way too much for us, plus it would never fit in our apartment, so we just passed it on by. Next thing you know, a man runs up the stairs and says that the price on the sectional is slashed down to $400! FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS!!! I wish we could have snagged that up!

The next sale we went to was even better! We went to an estate sale in a nice area of Nashville in a 4-story house where we had to call and get the address because it was in a gated community! 

It. Was. Awesome.

I will say, it surprised me. The house was super nice on the outside, but everything inside, while expensive, was super outdated. The best part for us was driving around the neighborhood as we were leaving. Hey, we were already "in," so why not snoop around?? We saw cars that cost more than an average house, houses with AMAZING views, and even a special "members only" exit out of the neighborhood. 

We're planning on going to even more estate sales soon, so I'll keep you updated!

  1. This sounds fun and borderline terrifying like you said.....haha!!!! Ps- just saw your comment about liking Feedly (yay!!) and wanted to say thanks for the feedback! I just want ahead and got signed up (at 5 a.m. because I'm insane and the mini was up crying at 4, so now I'm wide awake).

    Anyway, wanted to let you know that your email isn't linked to your blogger acct, so ppl aren't able to just reply via email to your comment (so I dropped my over here and am leaving this comment). Google "no reply blogger" and you'll find out how to easily fix it.....it's a game changer and you hear from so many more people! Hope that helps!! I had the same problem a year or so ago and someone finally told me how to change it!

    Happy Friday!!!!!!

    1. Darci--Thanks so much for the info about replying via email! I had no idea! I'll be googling and fixing that tonight!

      Let me know how you like Feedly. It's different, but if you play around with it, there are ways to make it pretty similar to Reader! The feedly blog has some helpful tips!

  3. Hi Ashlee! I found you because you started following me on the instagram! So, here I am and you seem adorable. We live in Nash, too. Maybe our paths will cross one day. (Oh, and we were just discussing the Farmer's Market, I've always wanted to go to an estate sale, and I too love dry shampoo.) Ha! :)
