It's coming along... One more day for the event...



Phew!  Our container was delivered on time!  One of the nerve-wrecking things about planning for a container sale is that you never know exactly when it will arrive.  Once it's picked up and leaves the port, you get an estimated date of arrival, but there are other little surprises, like strikes at the dock, or it takes a while to clear customs, or the trucking company that brings it to your place doesn't have a driver on the day you want it. Aye, Aye, Aye!



Well, it worked out just fine this time and everything's coming along wonderfully.  Almost everything arrived safely and we were able to unload everything without anyone getting hurt.  Each time I open a new container it feels like Christmas! 


Here are a few pictures of the unloading and of some of the items as we set up.  We had very interesting weather: not the best to receive a container for an outdoor sale.  We started the day with rain, then it cleared up, then we had strong wind, then the rain started up again, and then we even had some hail!  Luckily it settled down finally, and it promises to be nice for the weekend.








Hope we will see you this weekend.  Looking forward to it!

Hi,

Even though I am unable to attend your sale since I live in Canada, I am still excited that I'll be able to view the video for this event. Last night, I invited my Mom over to my house so that we could watch your past videos. We kept moving the mouse so that we could get a second chance at viewing some of the items. The way in which you create enchanted rooms with your furniture and garden accessories is just breathtaking.

May I make a suggestion? For this upcoming video, could you please zoom into those items that have intricate carvings such as your mirrors, commodes and side tables? We couldn't get enough of it!

Thank-you for sharing your beautful antiques with us. I wish you the best this weekend.

Have an exciting day tomorrow,

Sandra

P.S. Thank-you for taking photo's while you're driving throughout the French countryside. I appreciate it!

Oh my gosh! The galvanized baskets are wonderful! Do you have any left, and if so, do you ship to those of us unfortunately enough to live on the east coast on a day such a great sale is happening on the west coast?

Thanks!
