My web site, www.etcantiques.com will have pictures of some featured items by Tuesday evening, July 13.  Also
see our ads on Craig's List and the online classifieds of the Wilmington News Journal (www.delawareonline). The
ETC website also describes the lottery process for those who want to be among the first group admitted to the
sale on Thursday morning.  Please note: if you sign up for the lottery on Thursday morning starting at 6 a.m., you
must stay until the numbers are given out at 8 a.m., or else your name will be removed from the list (this is
standard practice at tag sales, and keeps people from signing up "phantom" customers for unfair advantage).  The
garage will open at 8 a.m. on Thursday morning only.


I always appreciate your thoughtfulness and respect for the property of the owner and of the neighbors, as
shown by parking clear of driveways and mailboxes, keeping traffic lanes open, and by staying off of their lawns.  
Remember that most items are discounted 20% on Friday and 20% to 50% on Saturday for even greater

I will be grateful if you forward this message to family and friends who might enjoy the excitement of an
estate/tag sale where they can get quality goods at bargain prices.  You may e-mail me with any questions.  I
hope to see you there!
