On the Hunt: Your Guide to Estate Sale Shopping


Cheryl Luckett

By Cheryl Luckett

It’s hard to believe summer is over.  I will admit, I’m more than happy to wave goodbye to the sweltering heat and humidity.

If you know me, you know I’m always on the hunt for good deals.  One of my go-to sources for some of those great finds are estate sales.  Lucky for me, one of my good friends owns and estate sale company.  She’s made it her goal to educate consumers on the ins and outs of hosting and shopping estate sales.

So many folks assume that estate sales are packed with tons of high priced valuable antiques that are well out of reach of the average person looking to score a good deal.  While many estate sales do feature fine furnishings, so many families are just looking to liquidate their possession that are much more like what we all own.  So, in an effort to prove my case, I snapped a few photos at a recent sale in Gastonia, NC so you could get a little taste of what’s often available.

For starters, there is often great vintage furniture.  Depending on the estate sale liquidator, the prices can be pretty competitive with sources like Craigslist. Pure and Simple is known for their organized sales that also boast great prices! couch-1

Even more than the furniture, I love the decorative accessories.  From mirrors to artwork to books to little what-not’s, estate sales are a great place to snag unique items at very reasonable prices. What many may not realize is that often the family needs to get rid of everything – so linens, tools, dishes, appliances and even cleaning supplies are often available.


In fact, cleaning supplies are among my favorite items to pick up since they’re usually group priced for a buck or two.  Have you checked the price on Swiffer refills lately?  Just sayin’.

Seasonal items are also typical staples at these sales.  You can really score when it’s off season as many customers aren’t thinking of Christmas décor when it’s August and 92 christmas-itemsdegrees outside. Luckily I am, because I picked up two rolls of wired ribbon and three rolls of wrapping paper for just $2 on Saturday!  I’ll be thanking my lucky stars come December.



My best estate sale shopping tip is to take your time and really think about how you could reinvent the items that are for sale. glass

Sometimes all it takes is imagining them in a different context to make you pull the trigger on a great deal.

So, wondering what I went home with?  Wonder no more.  Here are just a few of the goodies that made their way home with me.

  222. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any
    assistance is very much appreciated.

  223. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But
    he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about
    a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  224. I’m not sure where you are getting your information, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.

    And he in fact ordered me dinner simply because I discovered it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this subject
    here on your website.

  227. This is the right web site for anybody who would like to understand this
    topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with
    you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put
    a new spin on a subject that has been discussed
    for decades. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!
