Hidden Treasure! Look in your Drawers People!

I have many friends who run estate sales. When they see me walk up they are quick to assess what they remember about me and what I look for - as good business owners, they do this with all their regulars. I’m more of a challenge because I’m looking for hidden treasure. “There’s nothing here for you at this one.” Lee, owner of Dancing Dog Estate Sales said sympathetically. This only charges up my resolve as I feel she’s thrown the gauntlet down and now I am up for a challenge. As you can see from the image I found a favorite hiding place for treasure. Usually it’s old papers squished behind a wardrobe drawer. This time? Jewelry! I asked Lee to come over and her staff followed. The heavily tarnished gold ring was accompanied by a pair of cuff links and a gold Lutheran pin. My favorite phrase to hear as I said goodbye was “I’ll let the owner know what you found.” The owner had an interesting history in TV production as the producer of the Phil Donahue show. There’s cool stories hiding everywhere!
