Upcoming Estate Sales and Auctions for November 24 – 27

Today I am so thankful for so many blessings in my life, but I’ll focus on all the amazing things that happened last weekend at Bella Rustina. Last weekend’s event was the largest show I’ve promoted yet, so it was very important that we had the largest show attendance yet — and it happened! We blew our old record out of the water and I appreciate all of you (exhibitors and customers) who supported the show! I had multiple exhibitors tell me they broke 2022 sales records – meaning out of all the places they travel over the country, they beat those sales in Conway, Arkansas! This has been my dream for over 10 years and 64 shows so I’m on cloud nine. I’m thankful for Robin, who used 10 Robin-hours before the show to do tasks that would have taken me 20+ Ashley-hours because I have so many interruptions with phone calls, etc. And of course Robin stays up all night with me to get things done on show weekend and she is an encouraging friend when I want to pull my hair out. Erin is a huge blessing with her help during setup. I was invited to go on KARK Thursday afternoon during setup. The timing was perfect for that segment and I appreciate Lindsey for inviting me. Erin manned setup like a pro while I was gone so I had no worries. I’m excited I have found another person who will start helping at the January 6-8 Antique Alley Arkansas. Sandy will be a helping hand with exhibitor load-in and out and other things I should have delegated years ago. I’m thankful for Mandy, my sister-in-law, who helped me put together the selfie stations, balloon swags, and TikTok videos. She even put fake eyelashes on my deer head mount. We were laughing so hard! I’ve had that crusty, old deer head for years with plans to use it in a selfie station and finally got around to it. I didn’t get a good photo, but the deer will be back. I’m thankful for Evelyn who takes promotional cards far and wide and talks up the show for me. Doris, Carolyn, and Brenda are always so faithful to be my cashiers – they were rock stars last weekend. I am also thankful for each and every one of those 73 tables I had to bring to the Conway Expo Center. Why? Because I had to make two trips home to unload my trailer, so I left earlier than usual Sunday night. When I pulled forward my trailer wouldn’t budge.  Either I didn’t properly disconnect it when I parked the trailer or someone took my trailer brake clip. That clip is what activates the trailer brakes when you have a runaway trailer, so when the clip is pulled out, the trailer brakes activate and there’s no going. Shane, one of my porters, came to my rescue. He has worked with me for years but I had no idea he works at Superior RV. He called his boss, who allowed him to go to the shop and get me a new clip. No way I was going to find that part on a Sunday evening otherwise! If I hadn’t needed to make two trips home, it would have easily been after midnight before I noticed the pin was missing. I am thankful for Shane and Superior RV for saving the day. And of course all the porters who helped load in and out thousands of items over the weekend. I am blessed with an amazing crew and the Good Lord who takes care of me.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Roy Dudley has our lone sale this weekend, but it looks fun! Twin City Antique Mall has their open house (their address is
