My web site, www.etcantiques.com will have pictures of some featured items by Tuesday evening, September 1.  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.  We take cash or checks
as payment.

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 need to be aware of safety signs and markings.
