I cannot tell you how many appointments I go on and they have cleaned out all the "trash" from the house or they took all the clothing to the local charity. People do not realize that everything is worth something to the right person.
Let's talk about clothing. Vintage clothing is in style and can go for big bucks. Look up vintage band t-shirts. You will be shocked to find out what they are going for online. We had an estate sale a couple months ago and found a lot of vintage clothing in the attic. Names like Lillie Rubin and Neem Kahn to name a couple. We found some nice clothing. The one gem was a Neem Kahn Full Length Sequined Evening Gown from the 1980's. New they go for $3,000 to $8,000. It was in very good condition, so we asked $750 for it. This goes to show that if you clean out yours or your loved ones closets you could be throwing out hundred of dollars in sales.
Now lets talk about the trash. "One Mans Junk is Another Mans Treasure." What you think is junk and needs to be thrown away might be the exact thing someone is looking for. I cannot tell you how many times when I was an Estate Sale Buyer that I would purchase the most random things. I have purchased pressure cooker jigglers, old broken lamps, old water can spouts and tons of everyday useful items. Like half bottles of laundry detergent, hand soap, WD-40, and the list goes on. Bed linens, towels, and sheets are very sell-able as well. People like to save money and this is a great way for some.
All of the small items add up in the end. You can have all the big furniture in the house but if you do not have smaller items to fill in the sale it will not go well. People want a variety when shopping at an Estate Sale and we give it to them.
So, please do not throw anything away before you call an Estate Sale company. The more stuff you have the better. We love this business because we love to hunt treasure and the more we find the more we dig. So let us dig.
