Some Estate Sales Require A Unique Approach & Presentation

A most unique estate sale in Oviedo, Florida. Five generations of Pennsylvanian historical families. It started with VIP galas 5pm-8pm August 17 and August 18 and opens to the public without appointments on Thursday August, 20th at 9am conducted by Cece’s Closet, LLC. What is unique is the idea of having appointment only VIP galas with what was called “superior purchases of $100” in certain areas of the sale. We have not spoken with Cece, however, with a short video and over 500 photos we thought this sale news worthy for several reasons. Here is a link to her website. To view more information and the photos click here.

This sale features everything from a Coco Chanel dog coat, Mercedes Benz, Civil War memorabilia, gold jewelry and more.

Estate Sales And Mother’s Day – Buying For Moms- Carousel Horse to Viking Stove

Mother’s Day is two weeks away. Let’s discuss buying for Mom for her special day.

There are so many estate sales next weekend, if you don’t want to give a traditional gift (flowers that last maybe a week and then go out with the trash) or taking her out to dinner, think about buying a gift for her at an estate sale. For many taking Mom out to dinner isn’t anything special. Unlike decades ago when the majority of middle class Mom’s prepared food and only ate out on special occasions, today many eat out at least once a week.  This is where buying at an estate sale can speak volumes and shows her how truly important she is to you. Taking the time to look on estate sale listing websites, choosing liquidations to attend, and then buying a special gift (collectible, antique, rare, or unique) let’s Mom know you went the extra mile to make her day special.

Here is a peek of some items at the thousands of estate sales opening this week across the country. Click on the link to view details about the sale.
