Ohhh myyy gosh!!! I just paused our DVRd Celebrity Apprentice to read this to Aaron. Holy Crow! We can toootally imagine being there. Wowzers! What a story!

Thanks for sharing!!

Yikes! I was nervous just reading this! I've been to a few sales where people clearly weren't emotionally ready to sell their stuff, but never quite to this extent. Glad you got out with a few things (and your dignity!)

That is a great story and what an awkward situation to find yourself in! You really truly never know what you will encounter at an estate sale..another reason I love them!

Wack-a-doodle indeed! This is first time I've ever heard of it not being a good thing to be first at en estate sale.

Wow. Seriously awkward and not your own fault! I can't imagine how uncomfortable that must have been.

Wow! I thought that the sale I went to with the family talking trash about each and every member of it while the sale was going on was pretty bad, but that takes the cake. Sounds like Mom was not ready to let go. I also went to a sale of a girl that recently lost her Mother and had to clean the house out as the landlord wanted to rent it. All the prices were ridiculous. I overheard her saying she would get there late on Sunday and went back. The gentleman she left there was willing to deal as he would be moving it all back to his place if it didn't sell. It is always a sticky situation when the family runs the sales.


While I haven't ever found myself in quite this position I have grown tired of the fighting and shoving at estate sales. So I have resigned myself to my favorite company and visit her sales when ever she has them. You did the right thing and honestly the only thing you could...thanks for sharing...smiles...Renee


The sad, sad truth is that is probably reflects their relationship from way back when. You were very kind to the daughter B - I would have hightailed it out of there at the first sign of conflict! Looking forward to more stories from the frontline :)...J

I have been to a sale like that. I was with my best friend and I wouldn't have gone in if it weren't for her. This was a small house owned by a bachelor and he was selling everything with the help of a few of his friends. He was still living there and nothing was priced. It was so weird. I don't remember buying anything. I just remember how uncomfortable we were.

Oh, how odd, and how sad. Can you imagine what it must be like seeing your "life" being sold off at a yard sale? Someday we may be in the same place. Yikes. I need to get my heart ready for that!
