May 1st Graduations, Weddings, Moving & Estate Sales

May 1st has arrived and with it the season of graduations, weddings, and moving. Estate sales can be a major help with these events.

Looking for a graduation gift? Check out jewelry, designer handbags, shoes, wallets and other sought after high end items that are well below retail at estate sales.

Weddings and estate sales can be their own marriage. Estate sales are great sources for sterling flatware, holloware, china, crystal, high quality cookware, flat screen televisions, lighting and art. You can buy more or buy better items with what you save at estate sales.

The moving season is in full gear with baby boomers downsizing, generation X moving up and millenials creating their first residences. Moving can be challenging for any reason. Estate liquidators can help relieve some of the stress that accompanies these moves.

If you are looking for estate sales to shop at look at the websites listed below. Many estate sale companies do not list on all the websites. Check your area out on each site.

Support The US Economy And Buy American At Estate Sales

Support the US economy and buy at American estate sales. These sales are run by American small businesses. Their staffs as well as the liquidators spend their dollars here in America. Although many household items may have been made overseas, buying it from estate sale companies supports our small business owners and the people that work for them.

Several articles have been published lately about estate sales and all the items the reporters have said are selling. These articles are based on interviews with a few liquidators and a few auction companies.

With 15,000 plus estate sale companies across the United States and more companies forming everyday, the interviews of a few do not speak to the majority.

Yes, there may be some areas where estate liquidations aren’t producing the results hoped for, but there could be several reasons for this, including the number of estate sale companies in the area.

We encourage estate sale companies to remind their buyers to buy American. After the recent election where millions of Americans wanted jobs brought back to the United States here is your opportunity.

Estate Sales Make Holiday Events Unique On A Budget

An article by guest author Dan Jordan, Again L.A. Estate Sales

Having been an estate liquidator for more years than I can remember- I have learned a great deal from our always amazing buyers! Estate sales are a great resource for the holidays in so many ways… from the ever present collections of holiday and tree trimming ornaments and decor to the not always thought of entertaining supplies. Now is the time to start buying!

A formal dining room is a fixture in most traditional estates…we have all seen the ubiquitous china hutch and matching server and dining room table that seats 6-8 people. These sets are great for those who are furnishing their homes and want quality hardwood furnishings to a add a vintage flair and complete the formal dining room in their homes. But what about the contents of those drawers and hutches? Those items are what can take your holiday event from great to spectacular…and save you money aw well!

Older estates date from a time when entertaining at home was the norm – not just a special celebration a few times a year! In these estates you will find a treasure trove of fine cotton damask and lace tablecloths and serving linens at a fraction of the cost of new! Granted, they may be a bit yellowed from being stored for decades – but quick soaking and hot water wash with bleach and a good detergent will return them to the dazzling white of new! (you can do an old school rinse starching then steam press or spray starch if you prefer.)

3 Weeks ToThanksgiving Estate Sales Black Friday Is Now

Estate sales are Black Friday opportunities every weekend.

Yesterday on the news they were talking about Black Friday shopping. The Friday after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year for most retailers.  Many stores and online retailers are already offering significant discounts. This may reduce the number of people shopping retail on Black Friday.

People wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to buy for themselves and Christmas.

Another weekend of estate sales starts today. Opportunities for buyers are at estate sales every weekend.

Why pay retail when you can pay estate sale prices which are significantly below retail prices?

Now is the time to shop for your Thanksgiving needs and Christmas gifts. From flat screen TVs to brand new clothes with the price tags still on.
