For those of you who don't already know this about Jesse and I, We are avid estate salers and occasional garage sale goers. We have found some pretty promising treasures on our adventures and LOVE when we discover new things! It's the best when you find something that's super cheap but worth a lot! The best ones are the estate sales orchestrated by the home owners, family members of the home owners friends because they don't usually know what they are selling. Their are a few companies who do this who skim through the items first, take what they want and leave the junk for customers. Or sometimes antique stores will come in and snag ALL the antiques it's very frustrating!
Anyways here are a few helpful hints to finding some good estate sales...
-Sign up for estate sale websites so you get alerted when their is something happening in your area. Click here to check one out.
-Scope out Craig's list.
-Drive through your neighborhood and see any signs that are posted.
-The penny saver is one of my favorites, it usually arrives in your mail box on Wednesdays, most estate sales start on Thursdays!
-Usually companies who conduct estate sales will have a sign up sheet to alert you of any new sales in your area, SO SIGN UP!
This is all I can think of so far but if you have any other ideas please share them!
*here is a helpful hint when estate saleing (i know this isn't technically a word but it's how I say it): check out the sale the day it starts or Friday because normally ALL items will be on sale the last day of the sale since the people doing the sale usually wants to get rid of everything as soon as possible. The downside to this is that you are risking loosing the item. Feelin' lucky?
I'll be attending some good ones this weekend and am super excited to share my finds!!!
