When my mother passed away my sister and I decided to have an estate sale to get rid of all of her belongings. We decided when it was all said and done that we would split the money with each other 50/50. Of course, we let family and friends come and get what they wanted out of the house first.
My sister did most of the setting up because I work long hours and it took her about two weeks between separating and pricing the items. I could not believe once it was all set up what a pack rat my mother really was! Her attic was just loaded with boxes and boxes full of stuff that we never new about.
She had so much costume jewelry, fine china, crystal, colored glass and porcelain in mint condition. My sister finally came clean after the sale and told me that mom was working for the Birmingham escort agency for many years, that is why she had all of these buried treasures put away for us.
