Vintage Slot Machines

Vintage slot machines can be found at estate sales and auctions.

Slot machines were invented in the 1890’s by Charles Fey.

With so many casinos now in almost every state using mostly video slot machines we wanted to share some of this vintage slot machine collection. They will be in an estate auction in West Virginia.

Items That Can Be Sold At Estate Sales Are Often Overlooked

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.
