Estate Sell at Lepanto

On a Friday in July I was invited to go to an estate sale at Lepanto, AR. Well, if you don’t know where it is, “it’s a fer piece over yonder.” You go to, Conway, Beebe, Searcy, Newport, Harrisburg, Marked Tree the Lepanto. Marion is east of it and Jonesboro is north. Population 1,856. It was a doctor’s widow’s estate next to the school. We left at 6:15 and got there a little after 9:00. They opened at 10:00. We  were the first ones there. When the doors opened there was only about 8 people waiting in line. The house was full and we both got goodies. My treasures included: 2 glass Christmas trees for $3.00 each, a silver and glass covered sardine tray with a fish on the lid for $3.00, a Victorian china salt shaker for $1.00, a metal frog for $2.00,  a silver candle/match holder for $1.00, a silver bowl stand with 2 cherubs for $5.00, 2 crystal tooth pick holders for one for $5 and the other $2, an old oriental bowl for $10, a china duck figure for $5, a blue and white china cigarette lighter, 2 hand-painted china plates $2 and $3, miniature brass iron with wooden handle for 50 cents, a silver gondola for $$2, a metal purse for $5, a silver table Christmas tree for $3, a Pyrex casserole for $1, two English metal trays with ducks for $1, and a metal and tile table for $30. I didn’t spent over $100 and I got 6 Christmas gifts out of the stuff. My friend got several large items for a few costumers and a couple of thing for himself. Worth driving over.
