Items that can be sold at estate sales are often overlooked. Consider some of these suggestions.
Stair lifts, walkers, crutches, canes, and home health aides (that are sanitary) may be missed opportunities to be included in an estate sale.
Estates being settled for heirs may include refrigerators, or unattached appliances. New or almost new washers and dryers are appliances that can be sold at an estate liquidation.
Customers at estate sales will usually purchase cleansers (used or partially used), draperies and curtains. Gardens are also a great source with decorative ornamentation, and plants. Especially in warmer climates where plants grow year round.
Buyers that enjoy crafts and hand work items such as knitting needles, yarn, needlepoint patterns (still packaged or partially worked on), and sewing items will look to see if any are included in the estate sale.
Partial sets of towels, sheets, and blankets are also marketable.
Lawn tools, snowblowers, leaf blowers, lawn mowers, and grills are other items for sellers to decide on. Sellers relocating to areas that do not require these lawn items will probably sell. Each situation for a seller is different.
Consulting with an estate sale company before anything is thrown out or given away is important. Sellers or heirs want to assure that none of the items mentioned above and other personal property are not discarded.
People disposing of estates or moving are not always aware of items that can be sold. Every item sold at an estate sale counts financially.
EstateSalesNews.com wishes all the men out there a Happy Father’s Day. May it be everything you enjoy whether you are a father or not.
Here at Estate Sales News we are celebrating Flag Day today. It is important to hoist old glory and celebrate and embrace the freedoms she stands for on this day proclaimed to celebrate our flag.
If you are shopping at estate sales be sure to look for antique and vintage flags. Today we show a 48 star flag before Alaska and Hawaii were admitted as states.
The 13 colonies adopted the flag of the United States (which has evolved over the past two centuries) on June 14, 1777. Although it would take President Woodrow Wilson to issue a proclamation in 1916 as June 14 as Flag day.
The United States Army also celebrates its’ birthday on Flag Day.
We honor Flag Day and hope you will too.
