My web site,www.etcantiques.comwill have pictures of some featured items by Tuesday evening, April 11. 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 6:30 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 bargains.

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!

As with all estate sales, buyers enter the premises at their own risk and must heed and comply with safety signs and markings.
