Picking Estate Sales To Resell On Ebay!

PICKING ESTATE SALES TO RESELL ON EBAY!

Wasn't planning on hitting an Estate sale this past weekend but glad we found this one! This property was sitting on at least 1 acre of land and  the home has been empty best we could tell since around 2004. The property includes the 4 story brick home, a carriage barn, shed and storage building along with the breeze way attached 2 car garage. Courtyard area in the back with a pond and outdoor hot tub...



I enjoy garage sales but estate sales can be a lot more interesting as the families are not always looking to just make a few dollars. More so they are just wanting to clear out the unwanted items so they can move forward with plans of selling the property or continuing to use it.




Many times there is a lot of history involved with the property.  It is a great time to meet the family, network a little bit with them and they may even lead you too particular areas of the home or items of interest that others have over looked. 

This particular sale was being ran by a company we have bought from before and they do a great job. I keep an eye on there web site for new sales information!

Join us in the video below as we explore this old house and find a few treasures to resell on ebay!





 As stated in the video there was "ton-age" to look at and talk about. A lot of the pieces were outside of my "wheel house" as they say. I took pictures of several items with plans to do a little research and get a better idea if and when I run across similar pieces in the future.  

Here are a few items I want to re-visit and learn more about....



Cub Scout Shirt with vintage patches...



Antique Type Writers ...


Antique and Vintage Vinyl...


Vintage and Antique Toys...

Military Gear ...

Boys Scout Patches...

Good friend and storage unit buying partner "Steve" knows the patches and boy scout market very well. He thought there was over $150 value to these patches but ... we were a day late and dollar short, as they say, to grab the contents of that box. I need to learn about this market so I can buy more effectively when he is not available with his experience.

I see in the Facebook groups people talking about attending their first Estate sale and being a bit apprehensive about it. No worries folks! Normally it's just a big garage sale but you get to wonder through the building or onto the property to do your picking!

Keep an eye out on the local news papers and web sites for Estate Sales and Estate Auctions. There are some great finds out their just waiting on you to come and get it!
