For most of the country, spring is in the air and the weather is warming up. For any vintage shopper that means it’s estate sale season. For those of us who live in more temperate states, estate sale season never ends. But, it certainly picks up steam this time of year. Even though us Southern Californians are blessed with great weather most of the year, we still see more sales come Spring and Summer. People tend to move more when its warmer and the kids are out of school. Spring cleaning is still a very real annual event for many families as well.
With all of this going on I have been busy with some interesting sales this season. Everything from sketchy warehouses to homes worth several millions and anything in between. It’s been a ton of work, but so much fun as well. In the last few months, I have sold everything from rusted yard tools to priceless paintings. We had one sale where a pair of lovely ladies came all three days and spent hours trying on clothing. They bought piles of goodies each day too, and we had a blast acting like a bunch of teenage girls at the mall.
Remember when shopping estate sales, look everywhere, ask questions, and keep an open mind. We sell everything from cars and tractors to diamonds and gold. You never know what you will find.
