I scouted some awesome items in a estate sale recently. Oh, and by awesome I mean … “you are selling it for what low price?” .. queue in fainting scene. The above large 36″ square mirror (do you seeee that amazing peacock feather-like detail?) was grabbed at $20. How much do you think this storage trunk below was sold for?
We got it for $15 buckaroooos! It is in perfect condition (with ultra detailed carvings!). And this mask ……
Here’s are some closer pics of the trunk …. doesn’t it look MAGICAL?
Estate sales are EVERYWHERE. I use Estate Sales Net for my sourcing. You simply sign up providing your email and zip code and you get a list of sales near you. The items featured today were all from an estate’s moving sale - a family (very nice couple!) that were moving over seas and basically did not want to ship all their stuff. I grabbed these custom made horsies as well ……. how much for the set of two?
Yep, $10 for BOTH! Hint: for tag/ yard/ flea/ estate sales have low bills ready! Oh, the couple ended up gifting to us the xmas sleigh below (which totally made my hubby’s day … 1) he loved xmas decorations and 2) did I mention it was free?!!!
Oooh, I almost forgot to share … I was emailed that there was a Hollywood movie prop and furniture sale near me for a newly released movie!! Here’s the email:
The movie name is only shared upon arrival, so of course I HAD TO SEE which one it was – turned out it was Hope Springs. I didn’t buy anything, not much of my style (plus I went on the 2nd day …. so all the goodies were gone). Here I am on the warehouse that house all the props.
Now with this ‘tag sale fever’ that I currently have, I have been thinking … should I start going to more tag sales to start collecting unique items for clients and resell them? Hmmmm, what do you think?
