5 Estate Sale Items That Offer The Best Value

 

If you’re new to estate sale shopping, you probably don’t know what is worth buying.

Before you begin buying everything you see, you should know about which are the best estate sale items worth investing in.

We put together our five favorite items.

1. Silverware

If you’ve ever looked into getting new silverware, then you know how expensive it can be. Now, if you want real silver, it could cost a small fortune.

When you go to estate sales, you can get them for a fraction of the price. Keep your eye out for silverware sets.

If you don’t find real silver, you might also find nice ones for less than at a home goods store.

2. Big Furnishings

As much as everyone enjoys those trips to Ikea, and putting together your furniture, those pieces don’t last forever. When you go to an estate sale, make sure to be on the lookout for big furnishing pieces.

Most older furniture is better quality and tends to stand the test of time. Watch out for demilunes, tables, bureaus, shelving units, and other statement pieces.

Generally speaking, older wooden furnishings are solid wood and better crafted which makes them great options to buy at estate sales.

3. Jewelry

Estate sales are a paradise for ladies looking for some unique jewelry pieces.

You might be able to find great deals on gold, silver, and diamonds and pay less than their value.

Custom jewelry and designer pieces might also be available at estate sales if you know how to recognize a great piece.

Plus, you’ll also get the satisfaction your friends will wonder where you got such a cool piece of jewelry.

4. Paintings

While it might be difficult to tell a valuable painting if you don’t know about art, you can still get some interesting paintings at estate sales.

When you’re at estate sales, be on the lookout for paintings to decorate your home. It might surprise you the great paintings and illustrations that make it to these sales.

5. Kitchenware & Glassware

As you might be aware, high-quality glassware can be quite pricey. But at estate sales, you might be able to find them for a fraction of the price.

Think top quality wine glasses, champagne flutes, punchbowls, and more. You’ll pay a perfect price for high-quality drinkware.

Also, be on the lookout for quirky and useful pieces of kitchenware.
