News About EstateSalesNews.com

In March of 2013 I launched a free online magazine/blog about estate sales. EstateSalesNews.com

My goal was to educate sellers, buyers and estate sale companies based on my 25 plus years of experience as an estate liquidator and a retired owner of an estate sale company.

Now after over 875 articles during these four years the time has come to pass this labor of love on.

The new owner of EstateSalesNews.com is Estatesale.com. They have been a huge supporter of EstateSalesNews.com.

Continuing to offer estate sales news and information is a paramount concern and I hope you will continue to read and follow EstateSalesNews.com.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to provide free, useful information about estates sales without an agenda. This website was created as a resource for all. Free and unfettered. We have written about the good, the bad and the ugly.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the readers and followers of EstateSalesNews.com. my heartfelt thanks. The happiness and joy of writing about a business I care deeply about has been some of the best years of my life.

I will not say goodbye, simply – I’ll see you at an estate sale. Happy shopping.

Labor Day Weekend And The Flooding In Houston

by Carol Madden, EstateSalesNews.com

Labor Day weekend is usually a time we spend relaxing from our labors and enjoying friends and family.

This will not be the case for thousands of National Guard troops, first responders, emergency medical personnel, police, and an endless list of volunteers working to rescue and sustain those in Houston and the southeast part of Texas.

With record breaking flooding these men and women will be laboring far more than usual. Their job, to try and save as many lives as possible and provide support to those left devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

Support will be needed financially, food and water, utilities, clothing and of great importance, emotional care.

This weekend we hope you take some time to labor either writing a check, helping to provide food and clothing to send south, or just using social media to let those in Texas know that we are there for them.

A hamburger or hot dog would be a treat to those who can no longer cook them on their grills because they are gone. We should not forget them as we celebrate this weekend.

Let us labor each in our own way to help those who have lost so much and for those who are giving their labor, time, strength and even their life to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
