Lladro At A Garage Sale

SONY DSC

Well, it really turned out to be an estate sale even though it said garage sale on the newspapers online garage sale page.  Beautiful stuff, some of which I had to pass up because it didn’t meet the rule for myself that it 1. has to fit in my vehicle and 2. I need to be able to carry/move it about on my own.  I did luck out when I saw these Lladro Geese.

Lladro was mentioned in the ad, but I never thought there would be any left when I got there or they would be priced too high.  For $12.50 a piece I came home with three!

I cleaned them up and put them in my curio cabinet in the living room, which holds all my Lladro pieces.

A nice little find that made me feel like I got a beautiful bargain!

What a lucky find. Somebody didn't know what they had. We had a tag sale once and out neighbor brought over a lladro to sell for him - I said - oh, don't sell that. We looked on line and the same style was selling for $400 to $600. Crazy!

WOW what a score. I collect Lladro pieces too. I have many that they don't make anymore. They were collector club pieces. Many of them are beautiful. You got a really great deal. I also like your rules. They are a good idea so you don't wind up buying things you may regret.
