Buying from estate sales is not only smart shopping, it’s an important way we can support our neighbors and communities.
Most estate sales are due either to downsizing or a death in the family. Whether a loved one is moving to assisted living, or the surviving children are liquidating an estate, the best way we can offer support as neighbors and friends is to lessen the burden of stuff.
Moving is stressful, as most people have experienced for themselves, and the addition of life changes such as a death in the family or finanacial burdens of end-of-life care make the task overwhelming.
You CAN help!
If you see an estate sale in your community, stop in! There’s absolutely no pressure to buy, and you may find something just right for your home, or a friend’s. Not only will you be helping a family unload their unwanted items, you’ll be helping them financially as well.
