Picture it......yesterday at the estate sale.
I make my way down this narrow road which is packed with cars . I maneuver my truck into a clear spot the size of a postage stamp.There are hoards of people. OOOH! excitement ripples through me ,at the thought of the treasures that surely await inside.
Hmmmm...none of the people leaving seem to be carrying any treasures. This is not a good sign. Must be so nice it's out of their price range.
I make it up to the house . It looks like nothing special. Vinyl siding, no style. But it IS right on the lake . So the back side is probably more special.
I enter the living room and ...whoa! I have just stepped into a time warp. I have just entered the 70's.
Hideous square ,uncomfortable looking furniture
Old black and white UHF t.v.s
Glasses from the 60's
Mixers, aprons, sheets, dishes from the 60's
An exercise bike that was so huge and old it took up half the basement.
Every lamp, picture, and shred of decor.
Curtains? Check . Hideous!
Oh ...and I haven't even made it to the bedrooms yet.
Imagine the horrors waiting in the closets.
If you have been searching for that baby blue or Realtor Gold leisure suit......here's your chance!
I don't know about you , but it has always been a dream of mine to see my husband in one of these.
Nothing screams sexy like a Mr. Roper suit.
Or better yet.....how about bold checks and some skin tight polyester ??
There were plenty of ties to match this snazzy shizzle. Believe you ,me.
And don't forget a nice 70's suitcase to put it all in.
Oh. My. Lord!
WHY would someone buy a brand new lake house and then furnish it with every hideous thing they have hoarded since the 50's?
Apparently the house itself is 17 years old.
Obviously ,these people had not bought ONE single thing for decades.
The house is also for sale . You could buy it furnished and live in your very own time capsule.
Here's the kicker.......this can all be yours for the measly sum of $ 889,000
Yeah....I know .....good thing I was wearing my depends.
Happy Friday peeps!
P.S. I wasn't really wearing a depends:)
