Telling the sellers story of an estate sale draws audiences for estate sales.
Understanding who the sellers were, why they collected, what they did, and where they shopped is insightful. The sellers story in estate sales provides provenance to what is for sale.
Here is a partial story about a sale taking place this week in Los Angeles, CA starting on Wed. July, 27 by Again L.A. Estate Sales. “Huge USC Exec Estate – Mid Century, 70s, Toys, Tools, Hoarder Sale”.
“This is the estate of an incredibly interesting couple – both were incredibly dynamic individuals! Leonard Wines, hereafter referred to as the Mister -was a career University of Southern California figure who began his USC career as Coordinator of Communications and then ultimately Director of Pubic Reltations. He took an early retirement in the eighties and dived right into the world of computers…becoming a product manager with Data Desk International and a faculty member with the annual San Francisco Macworld Exposition. His Missus – Clara Vines was an equally dynamic individual! Clara spent the 1950s working the with State Department serving through the Middle East and Asia before marrying her lifetime partner and raising two sons. Clara loved the arts and being an artist at heart – her greatest love was working with her hands creating many wonderful pieces of pottery, sculpture, jewelry, textiles, and more! The couple loved music and acquired a large collection of jazz records and literally every room on the property was wired for sound. Their property features a large garden area filled with plants and it must have been quite the retreat in the past!
This is a wonderful example before a list of the major contents that let’s buyers know what and why this home is so filled. Here is a link to this sale to read more.
Many estate sale companies write these stories opening life’s journey.
Every weekend thousands of estate sales take place across this country and most offer contents priced well below retailers.
Consider that the two day estate sale has now become in many cases a three or four day sale to facilitate selling off the entire contents of the property and allows for discounting at a certain point.
Each estate sale company has a different policy about discounts or price reductions. Most estate sale companies will not offer discounts on day one. The sale is just beginning. Usually by day two they will offer some discount either on all or a part of the contents they are charged with selling. By day three the discounts may become greater. If the estate sale goes into a fourth day the discounts are usually quite significant.
Considering this information, when you see an item you are interested in acquiring, make the purchase. You may be making a mistake if you choose to wait for it to be discounted. The prices of items estate sales are already below what you pay at a retailer. It becomes a gamble to wait on the possibility of a discount, return another day and find the piece you wanted to purchase sold on day one.
Time flys and once again it’s estate sales Friday and many sales this week started early. Some as early as Wednesday.

Vintage has become a generic term for anything that has been used in years past, but does not qualify as an antique. Most items date from the 1930’s to 1980. Mostly in the mid 20th century.
Antiques are items approximately 100 years old.
Let’s look at some vintage items that are for sale at estate sales now or in the near future. Many people have appliances restored or repurpose them.
