Buying a Valentine gift at an estate sale is special.
Instead of overpriced flowers or candy and better than a crowded dinner out.
A Valentine gift purchased at an estate sale tells your Valentine you took time to be thoughtful.
Estate sales have so much to offer right now and you still have three weeks to find that special gift.
You may even find vintage Valentine cards to give. Romance, art and love were in the air then.
Here are some of the great Valentine gift ideas at estate sales. From jewelry to vintage, art to games you can find it at an estate sale.
Recently as I have traveled, so many people have chatted about how the holidays stressed them out shopping in a retail store with lines, coupons, and all the craziness that goes with it.
Every opportunity I have had I suggest shopping at an estate sale. Explaining that you not only save dollars. You avoid coupons, check out lines with often grumpy check out clerks exhausted by long hours and low pay.
Estate sale staff choose to work long and hard, enjoy serving customers and they want you to leave happy so you’ll keep shopping at their estate sales.
Estate sale companies are charged with selling the items in their locations. They can’t afford keeping stock. Their business is to sell and over a period of days sell off as much as possible. Some choose by discounting and others by looking at offers. Keep in mind this is not usually the practice on the first day, but on the days that follow.
From holiday decorations for Hannukah or Christmas to unique and special gifts estate sales have so much to offer buyers.
If you have put off your Christmas shopping check out the links below to find estate sales selling everything from A-Z. You’ll come out smiling.
20 days to Christmas and Hannukah if you have been shopping for those special people in your life while wait to receive the item by mail, or get a note that says it is back ordered.
Estate sales start every Thursday or Friday and offer and varied array of items, old, new, vintage and slightly used. They also offer a selection that can surpass what you will find in the store or online at a fraction of the cost.
NOW is the time to look at these websites and find the sales nearest you and get your holiday shopping done expeditiously. Just buy, save $$$ and wrap. Done!
Check out these sites and please when you visit estate sales let them know you read EstateSalesNews.com
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.)
Start shopping now for Christmas at estate sales.
Online retailers such as Amazon, Overstock and Wayfair are already advertising sales for Christmas.
What is more amazing is online shopping is becoming more popular by the day.
Thanksgiving weekend which use to kick off the Christmas shopping season is less than 5 weeks away.
Now is the time for estate sale companies to get their Christmas shopping advertising into gear. So much can be done by estate sale companies and gained by buyers.
This is the time to mention in each estate sale description what is available that would make great Christmas gifts or decorations.
Utilize social media to showcase your current and upcoming estate sales. Be sure to write in a way that the buying public can see the reason to buy their gifts at estate sales. Facebook is particularly beneficial to present sales to a broad based public audience.
It’s estate sales Friday. There are many estate sales across the country.
East coast to west coast, north to south estate sales are happening by the thousands.
High end estate sales, hoarder sales, estate sales with collections, privately listed estate sales.
If you are looking for an estate sale company this is a great weekend to go out and visit estate sales in your area.
Check out the way they handle entering the sale. How does the estate sale appear. Is it staged well? Are signs posted about all sales final, no returns, forms of payments accepted, security and more?
Look at the way items are priced and tagged. Did they use tags, adhesive tape, stickers and what type of items were they placed on. Ephemera especially should be carefully tagged (best in a plastic bag) and then a sticker on the bag so no damage to the item.
It is also time to think about what you might need for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. Now is a great time to start shopping for dishes, glassware, flatware, decorations etc.
A reminder – PLEASE read the terms, conditions, and descriptions of each estate sale on the various advertising websites. Being empowered with knowledge before attending an estate sale is very important for many reasons.
Bring you estate sale kit with you, including flashlight, bags and boxes, wrapping, water and a loop or magnifying glass..
Be sure to check out each one of these estate sale advertising websites. Many estate liquidators only use one advertising website. Don’t forget to check out Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too.

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.
Danny Triplett owner of Full House Liquidation spoke with EstateSalesNews.com and provided today’s headline “Family Says Final Farewell to Their 1950’s TIA-Adjacent Homestead”.
Here is an excerpt from Danny’s article.
“Full House Liquidation will be conducting an enormous farewell estate sale on the Jessen family’s TIA-adjacent property, coming up Sept.8th=11th at 5014 N. Hesperides St. in Tampa.
It’s located located adjacent to Air Cargo Rd, right up against Tampa International Airport. The family has been here since back in the 1950s when it was Drew Field.
Now as Drew Park, with mostly industrial type businesses, the family homestead is one of the last of an era, that will soon be gone.
As the family members passed away over the years, and others moved out of state, two of the brothers chose to stay on their family property for decades, and continued to live there together as bachelors up into their seventies.
Both were engineers, who enjoyed racing cars as a hobby. One was an architectural engineer for a local archtiectural on Howard Avenue and the other was a mechanical engineer for a big food processing company here in Florida.
