I can't buy everything I see, but it is difficult even with the things that are small. Old pencil boxes are on my kryptonite list and if the top was present, I would have bought it. #found #pencils #old #drawing #cool #estatesale

Out on the hunt early - I bag an Alligator Bag

When you see animal skins and furs at estate sales I always pause (not paws) and ask:"Is that endangered and can it be sold?" If you purchase Ivory someone may read you the riot act, or to force you to read the reams  and reams of documentation about what Ivory is legal to buy. Alligator is not currently on the endangered species list, but I could be wrong. Asking an Alligator, however, could put you on the endangered species list. It is best to check the laws of the State you are purchasing it in. Me? I only take pictures...much safer.
