Excerpts From “Pass It On- Wild Tales and Estate Sales”
From Chapter 17:
“ Early one Saturday morning, I opened my home for my own sale. My first customer arrived at 7:00 sharp, asking if I had a king size mattress for sale. I thought for a moment, thinking of Jimmy asleep in our bed. It was king sized, and really, we weren’t fond of it.”… “I led the man back to our bedroom where Jimmy was still asleep. The man stopped short of entering upon seeing the mattress covered in linens and a rather large lump in the middle of it (Jimmy). ‘Jimmy, Jimmy wake up. This man is here to buy our mattress.’ Jimmy is long suffering and so very patient with me. He vacated the bedroom and I went to work. I said, ‘Here take a look , it’s for sale and it’s still warm!’ The man bought the mattress and box springs on the spot, and my very patient husband helped him carry it out and load it up. Thank goodness Jimmy has a sense of humor.”
From Chapter 14:
“ During the sale , many guests, my staff and I gathered in the large kitchen, conversing and milling about, when a customer, with her two children opened the door of an old freezer that stood in the corner of the kitchen. My faithful staff backed away, mouths agape, faces pale the door swung open. The inquisitive woman stood there, pressing her face into the freezer while her children screamed. The woman shrieked, and Ed jumped forward slamming the door shut. No one said a word, or moved. I crept forward and slowly eased the freezer door open. “
