Here at Amber Ostrich Estate Sales, we have many shoppers who are business owners and come to our estate sales to buy for their businesses.

This shopper profile is part of installation of a blog series about our shoppers who are also business owners.

Have you ever wondered just what dealers or buyers do with the stuff they buy at estate sales? Shaylene Spaniola, owner of Bunglo, a textile design company, is just one of those buyers who takes the old and makes it new.

At our last estate sale Spaniola bought this vintage sofa, designed a fabric for it and will be selling it at Mockingbird, a local Austin home furnishings store.

Here is Spaniola on the sofa on the day she bought it at the estate sale:
