I went to an estate sale today at a very nice house I'm guessing from the 80s. The sale itself was boring but the kitchen was fun. I spent awhile in there looking at the appliances. There was a Hotpoint range very similar to mine but this one was much more deluxe, possibly TOL. It had a surface light and possibly a Sensitemp, but I'm not sure on that. It was a very nice range though and very clean. There was also a Kitchen Aid dishwasher with a black acrylic panel door from the same time. The fridge though was a newer white Kitchen Aid badged Whirlpool SXS.

But all in all it was nice to see these appliances. I do like when estate sales have nice vintage appliances to look at.

Plus right before Easter I went to another estate sale and there was a nice Kitchen Aid Superba washer and dryer set in the laundry room, also very very clean.

Mobile, AL estate sale

I went to one here yesterday - started at 8 and I was there within 15 minutes after starting.  I went specifically for this laundry pair, but was told that they were sold.  No prices on either appliance, and I'm betting someone either contacted the seller in advance, or a friend of the family put 'dibs' on them.  The house was built in 1976 and they were the first and only washer/dryer for the lady.

Look at that water heater next to the washer! I hope that your ground water is warm because I would hate to heat water for a 1-18 electrically.

Not to worry - our ground water is most certainly warm.  Takes very little warm water mixed with a lot of cold to take a shower.


Mobile, Alabama, remember?

I hate estate sales where items are already pre-sold.  None of the estate sale companies around my area do it.  It's first come, first served or you're just out of luck.

Yes, and some

estate sale agents are also dealers, so they are there first.

Then they make a nice mark up on it.

I think all dealers here ascribe to that code of ethics - no advance sales, no advance pricing.  But this particular sale was being conducted by the family, so.....
