Smart Holiday Shopping at Estate Sales
People usually hold yard sales to get rid of a few things that are no longer useful to them. In contrast, estate sales are held to sell what is often a lifetime accumulation of many rooms full of useful, quality items that were once loved.
Quality Gifts, Lower Prices
As detailed in our article "6 Things You Should Buy at Estate Sales" many items can be found secondhand at estate sales at a fraction of the retail cost. Fine jewelry, crystal, sterling silver, old vinyl records and leather bound books are among the items that make great gifts for yourself or a loved one.
Nearly every home has a stash of holiday decorations - whether it be Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Hanukkah. You may find vintage Halloween costumes and Jack-o-Lanterns, turkey pattern dinnerware, Waterford, Orrefors, Lenox Christmas Ornaments, hand carved Nutcrackers, boxes of Christmas lights, and much more! Most of these items will be 50% off of retail!
We all know that household waste increases between Thanksgiving and New Years. Give a new home to second hand items by buying smart at estate sales!
