Estate Sale Searching – Who, Where, And How

Almost two years ago actor Lance Bass while on Cupcake Wars announced his new website, famousyardsale.com. Estate Sales News wrote an article about this new concept and up until three weeks ago we had it in our archives. Unfortunately the NSYNC stars’ site was removed months ago and so we decided to remove this article due to the large number of people searching and not finding any viable information.

We value our search engine visibility, but our mission isn’t to collect clicks on Google, Yahoo, Bing, AOL, or any other search engine. Our goal is to provide you with useful information.

Searching on the internet is always a great way to find information, but you have to consider the sources you come across that offer information including estate sale information.
