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.

Great sales can be found in most every state.

Estate Sales Versus Overstock And Wayfair

Why buy at estate sales? With Overstock and Wayfair and the ability to order on line they offer the convenience of shopping from your couch. However, nothing compares to hands on.

Buying at an estate sale allows you to thoroughly look over the items you wish to purchase. It also allows you to measure for fit or size.

Kitchenware, dishes, glasses, and linens are available at most estate liquidations.

When you buy at an estate sale you take the item home that day in most cases. You also do not have the opportunity to return items, as sales are final. The ability to look over your purchases closely before buying does allow you to avoid regret later.

Garden tools, yard maintenance equipment, even potted plants can be purchased at estate sales.
