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.

What’s Driving Thousands Of Buyers To Estate Sales – Resale And Baby Boomers

lining upSpring fever for parts of the country that have endured a hard winter is bringing out buyers to estate sales, but that isn’t the only reason.

1000’s of estate sales are taking place every weekend all over the country. The baby boomer generation is retiring and on the move. You would think with the large volume of personal property for sale this would prevent estate sales from selling to the walls, however, that is not the case.

Estate sales are a good place to buy reasonably priced used furnishings, household, clothing, jewelry, art, and more keeping green and that continues, however, other reasons are now driving estate sale attendance to higher levels than we have seen in the past.

Whether it is to earn extra money, or as a full time entrepreneur working from home people are showing up at estate liquidations to look for items that can be either repurposed and then resold or resold as is on eBay, Craigslist, Facebook, Amazon, NextWorth (electronics), Etsy, Copious and Threadflip (clothing), in consignment shops, and the list continues growing. There are names here you may not be familiar with, but they are on the Internet and online resales are going strong. Online magazines and blogs are out there to provide further information about these websites.

Everything from clothing, jewelry, records, magazines, electronics, linens, home furnishings, cars, lawn furniture and tools is being bought and resold.

Estate sale companies are increasing their marketing reach and that has increased the attendance at their estate sales.

Another week has started and estate liquidators are already at work preparing for sales this weekend. Next weekend celebrates Passover and Easter so the number of estate sales will probably decrease with families spending time together, but there may still be sales in your area so check out estate sale listing websites and when you see a long line think about other businesses that have been created by the estate sales business.

Estate Sales News is Traveling Today to Michigan

125px-Flag_of_MichiganEstate Sales News is flying to Michigan today to cover two fabulous and unique estate sales and an auction that is working along side an estate sale.

Known as the Wolverine state or Great Lake state we have an opportunity to interview three very experienced individuals in estate sales, one of whom is also an auctioneer and one is also an appraiser.

The estate sales are in two different areas of Michigan and one will be taking place this weekend, the other estate sale and auction will be next weekend.

These estates are very diverse. One is the estate of woman from a nationally known family and will feature collections that are seen once, maybe twice in a lifetime along with a classic car and the other is the estate of a well known sportsman and will have an estate sale starting on Friday with an auction of a taxidermy collection on Saturday.

We hope to have two videos for you for the sale this weekend and two for the estate sale and auction for next weekend.
