Retro Is Making A Big Come Back In Cassette Tapes & Vinyl

Next time you are shopping at an estate sale keep your eyes alert for cassette tapes and vinyl records.

In the last few weeks cassette tapes have received a lot of attention.

Urban Outfitters has been selling vinyl records to collectors and now they are selling cassette tapes from numerous artists. Urban Outfitters is not only selling new cassette tapes, but also the boom boxes to play them on. You can read more about it in this article written by Sharelle M. Burt

Bobby Owinski of Music 3.0 also wrote an article on the return of the cassette tape. In it he provides more information from the National Audio Company.

The video below about the National Audio Company is from Bloomberg Business.

Fascinating that what was old is now “new” again. Watch for them at the next estate sale you attend.

The Stock Market In Chaos The Best Place To Buy Is An Estate Sale

As I sit and listen to CNBC’s the Closing Bell Wrap Up with Kelly Evans, and Bill Griffeth this Monday, discussing the upheavals of the stock market and the uncertainty associated with it, Ms. Evans commented that most people are not going into a Nordstrom (a high end retailer) right now looking for shoes. They are concerned with their portfolios. The graphic above is used with the permission of Microsoft.

Ms. Evans and Mr. Griffeth are absolutely right unless the wealth one has is infinite.

That is just another good reason to be shopping now more than ever at estate sales. Last week in Chicago Gucci, Coach, Judith Leiber, and other designer handbags were being sold at an estate sale well below full retail price. Jewelry, both gold and silver were also being sold. Designer clothing was featured at several sales across the country.

Whether your looking for designer apparel, kitchen dishes and glassware, lawn care equipment, linens, art, furnishings, and many other items you can find them for sale at an estate liquidation and right now with the market in flux this is a great time to save $$$ and help keep the planet green. It also still allows you the opportunity to buy those sought after items with out the guilt of paying retail while the stock market rides a roller coaster.

Antique Flemish Art Pyrography – Find Them At Estate Sales

The Flemish wood burning art called pyrography used to create artistic designs mostly on wood is still collectible. Dating from the late Victorian era into the early 1900’s many beautiful and unique pieces were created along with such items as glove boxes, plaques, tables, and the two examples below. Some were plain while others featured color like these. Treasures I cherish and hope you will enjoy.
