The Modern Estate Sale: Not Your Grandma’s Attic

The Evolution of Estate Sales: Amazing Finds in Your Grandma’s Attic

Gone are the days when estate sales were simple events for thrifting enthusiasts. Today, people go to estate sales to hunt for some antiques and rare gems.

Blue Moon Estate Sales is proud to be at the forefront of the estate sale transformation. The brand has revolutionized the concept of estate sales as a modern marketplace for cool and contemporary items. Grandma’s attic used to be a place to rummage through old and dusty things. Not anymore. It is now a place to find unique stuff to sell or decorate your home.

Whether there has been a death in the family or you are simply downsizing, here is how we can help.

What Is an Estate Sale?

There is a need to clarify the term “estate sale” for some. Many associate estate sales with death, but the scope is significantly larger. The definition is “the sale or auction of personal items inside a home.”

So, when a person passes away, heirs often sell some of the items left inside the deceased's house to clear them out. However, an estate sale can also be done for the living—people who are moving to another property or simply want to downsize their belongings can sell off certain items for practicality.

It’s a lot of hard work to clear up everything inside a house. Fortunately, Blue Moon Estate Sales can help make it easier for you. Whether there has been a death in the family or you are simply moving out, we will assist in making sure your beloved things will find new homes.

It is important to note that estate sales are different from garage sales. The latter is the sale of unwanted items by people still occupying the property. So, the items are displayed on the lawn or in the garage.

Estate sales involve items that need to be disposed of because the house has to be cleared. They are also done inside the house.
