Shop Like A Pro At Your Next Estate/Garage Sale
 
     School is out for most of us and summer is here. Are you thinking about going to a garage or estate sale? Here is a list of things you may want to do to make your next trip a success!
  • Map out your route the day before.
  • Check craigslist, the newspaper and be sure you are signed up to recieve email newsletter to be notified of Hidden Creations next estate sale. 
  • Look for multi-family, church or organizations that sound like they will have lots of things you are interested in buying.
  • Make a list of things you want to buy and set a budget.
  • Know the fair market value of the items you want to purchase so you don't overpay. If things are overpriced asked if they will come down. If they wouldn't there are always other sales.
  • Bring small bills so that you have exact change. 
  • The early bird does find the best items. I always say at my estate sales come early for best selection and come back again for best deals.
  • Flashlight, measuring tape, paper, pencil, gloves and a mask are always handy to have in your bag.
  • Enlist friends and family to go with you. You can divide up and look for certain treasures, one can guard your pile and even help you load the big pieces.
  • Bring bags, boxes and packing to wrap up your fragile items. If you plan on buying large items or are an impulse buyer you may want to throw in rubber snubbers, blankets and rope.
  • Bring water and snacks
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Dressing in layers as you can remove them as the day warms up. 
  • Bring an umbrella just in case it rains
  • Be kind and have fun at your next estate/garage sale!

Thank You For Your Kind Words....
     
     My recent estate sale staged by Gail Smith of Hidden Creations, was a big success. Mutual respect existed between Gail and her friendly crew as they worked at my home, each worker assigned to an area of his or her expertise. All were kind and respectful throughout, from preparation through end of the sale itself. My home's contents were downsized and cleared according to my wishes. In only one week following the sale, the final clear-out was finished and the business end of the sale was completed. Gail is a skilled professional in the estate sale business, and I highly recommend her!
