Avoid The Hassle Of Retail Shopping With Estate Sales

Recently as I have traveled, so many people have chatted about how the holidays stressed them out shopping in a retail store with lines, coupons, and all the craziness that goes with it.

Every opportunity I have had I suggest shopping at an estate sale. Explaining that you not only save dollars. You avoid coupons, check out lines with often grumpy check out clerks exhausted by long hours and low pay.

Estate sale staff choose to work long and hard, enjoy serving customers and they want you to leave happy so you’ll keep shopping at their estate sales.

Estate sale companies are charged with selling the items in their locations. They can’t afford keeping stock. Their business is to sell and over a period of days sell off as much as possible. Some choose by discounting and others by looking at offers. Keep in mind this is not usually the practice on the first day, but on the days that follow.

From holiday decorations for Hannukah or Christmas to unique and special gifts estate sales have so much to offer buyers.

Christmas 2 Weeks From Today – Estate Sale or Not? ThrowBack Thursday

Vintage ChristmasThis is the last weekend before Hannukah and two weekends before Christmas.  The decision whether to run estate sales at this holiday time is a tough one for estate sale companies.

The area you are located in, the retail shopping available to the community is a consideration. Another concern is how does your staff feel about working so close to the holidays. Each company must make their own decision, but a word of advice to estate liquidators, especially newer ones in the industry, ask them. A cheerful smile and a happy tone in their voice helps create sales. If they are tired or feeling remorse about not being able to share in pre-holiday family events can add frowns to faces and even make some people cranky. This time of year can be stressful for many and hopefully you have give consideration to this before accepting sales. You also want to consider the results your clients may expect.

Again it depends on what part of the country you’re in and the community as well.
