Dec. 6 – Dec. 8, 2013. at the Cielo Ranch home in the Cummings Valley.

Ms. Kroese told Estate Sales News that the Palance sale includes furnishings, contents of a huge working barn and two additional out buildings.  Items such as a John Deere 4100 tractor, a great collection of western gear, saddles along American antiques, pottery, bronze dore clocks,  three antique armoires, a collection of commercial sewing equipment, fabrics and more that Elaine used in her professional interior decor and design studio. There is also a collection of horse garden statues, antique wagon wheels, garden benches and the list goes on.

Hanukkah, Thanksgiving – Holidays Create Collections

Hanukkah starts tonight and we wish all who celebrate a Happy Hanukkah. It also is one of the holidays that many people collect Judaica for. Judaica can be found at estate sales. There are three sales currently advertising Judaica on EstateSales.Net and at lease one or two taking place this weekend. Just as Christmas, Easter, and Halloween collections abound so does Judaica. To celebrate these unique and distinct collectibles we have created a Pinterest Board on our Estate Sales News Pinterest page which show a sample of items that are at estate sales.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and Estate Sales News wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. No matter where you celebrate this American cultural tradition, we hope you enjoy this wonderful time. Estate Sales News will not be publishing tomorrow, but of course you can always find all of the hundreds of articles and videos we have published right here on EstateSalesNews.com.

Check out what you and your family are using for this turkey day. Chances are there is at least one vintage item, a plate, bowl, decorative ceramic turkey, vase etc. and these items can also be found at estate sales. 

From our house to yours may your celebrations be joyful.

Estate Sales On Black Friday And Thanksgiving Weekend – Advertising Is Key

ShoppingEstate Sales News is publishing today, Sunday, because with Thanksgiving Thursday this week it is very important if you are running an estate sale on Black Friday (the Friday after Thanksgiving) and the weekend that you have good marketing in place to compete with the big stores, Macy’s, Target, Nordstrom, Walmart, JC Penny, etc. It would appear that there will be 1000 plus estate sales starting on Friday, November 29th.

The big retailers have been sending out flyers in the mail and advertising on television and radio for weeks. Most estate sale companies cannot compete with that, however, there are ways to attract buyers.

If you are on Pinterest, have you created a board about your sale this week? Featured some items that will be better buys than what the retailers will offer. Have you been posting and updating your Facebook business page (and if you don’t have one you should). Today social media is the place where estate sale liquidators can get ahead of their competition. Sending out tweets on Twitter on a regular basis about some of the good buys and great items you have that would make wonderful gifts. This is a great time to encourage people attending your sales to follow you on Twitter and Like you on Facebook as well.

It’s also a great time to be advertising that if you are not required to collect sales tax that buying gifts at your sale is “tax free”.

If you happen to do videos and have YouTube on your website a short video might also be a good way to get the word out.

Any way you look at it although you have competition on Thanksgiving weekend, by using your marketing skills and knowledge you can make it a win win for you and your seller.

Estate Sales News -The Source For Estate Sale Information, News And National Blog

Carol Madden, Editor, ESNEstate Sales News has had a very busy November. Two trips to California in 12 days, Florida, Maryland along with a telephone interview for an upcoming estate sale in Tehachapi CA starting Dec. 6th.

We have many topics to cover in the upcoming weeks, but today we want to address next week, Thanksgiving. If you are on or follow social media you’ll no doubt have seen many posts and comments about stores open and having workers working on Thanksgiving pros and mostly cons. Having been an estate sale liquidator for 25 plus years your editor never worked the Thanksgiving holiday. It was important time for my staff and I to spend with our families and recharge our batteries so to speak.  This was a personal decision. Each estate sale company decides their own policy. Sellers, however, should have input about whether they want a sale conducted during this time period.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our audience who follows us, comments to us, and inspires us to continue to provide the most up to date estate liquidation information possible on estate sales, business and estate sale trends. “You are why this website exists”.

This year I will again join my family to celebrate Thanksgiving so no article next Thursday, November 28th. I give thanks this year to you, the EstateSalesNews.com audience. You have made this journey since March 6th, 2013, our launch date the best possible experience and we will continue. This truly is a labor of love for the profession. 

It’s been a fascinating week in Los Angeles. Meeting Eric from TMZ was a wonderful experience and as always we keep learning too.
