What To Buy At Estate Sales?
Do you love finding new things but wondering what to buy at estate sales? Look at some of the items purchased and some ideas for your next estate sale find.
New Items To Buy At Estate Sales
Quite often, everyone thinks that estate sales are for finding unique, old items that aren’t found in local retail stores. This is far from the truth.
Estate sales throughout the country have everyday items like dishes, new furniture, electronic equipment, vehicles and more that you buy at the fraction of retail.
Families throughout the country are saving money on everyday items their families can use and enjoy without paying the high retail prices.
Buying Vintage Furniture
If you’re into the quality, and style of a past era, there’s no better place to find well made vintage and antique furnishings other than an estate sale.
Since all the items in the home are for sale because someone has past on, moved, or downsized, you’ll find that the furniture has been well cared for and priced fairly.
Estate Jewelry Finds
At estate sales you’ll generally find a nice variety and a little of everything. From costume jewelry, to silver, and fine jewelry, it’s crazy to shop retail when you can get a wonderful piece to add to your collection at a fraction of the price.
China and Serving Pieces
Some fine porcelain china sets cannot be found on the open market anymore. Limited patterns and designs are hard to come by. The only way to replace a missing piece or purchase an entire china set would require you to pay top dollar on sites like Ebay or Replacements. Almost every estate sale has a complete China set. Once you visit a few sales you’ll realize estate sales is where it’s at.
If you’ve never been to an estate sale, or haven’t been to one in a while, make a plan to visit a few this weekend.
During an estate sale you’re not only getting your hands on some beautiful items and not paying retail, you’re also helping a family during a difficult time, or someone finally downsize into their dream home.
