Your Newest Obsession Unlocked: Estate Sale Shopping Tips

Are you a treasure hunter at heart? Do you love the thrill of finding unique items with a history of their own? If so, estate sales might just be the perfect hobby for you. Whether you’re an enthusiastic bargain-hunter or a connoisseur of luxury or one-of-a-kind pieces, estate sales offer a treasure trove of hidden gems waiting to be discovered.

At Blue Moon Estate Sales, we understand the excitement that comes with finding a piece of furniture, artwork, clothing, or appliances at a discounted price. It’s more than just a purchase; it’s a connection to the past. Each item adds a layer of history and character to your collection, making estate sale shopping not just a hobby but a journey of exploration and discovery.

How to Spot Upcoming Sales

There’s an exhilarating rush that comes with waking up on a Saturday morning, knowing that it’s time to head out on a treasure hunt. As you step outside, you’re greeted by the familiar sight of colorful garage sale signs scattered across the neighborhood, begging you to explore. However, seasoned estate sale hunters know that these garage sales, while exciting, often pale in comparison to the richness and variety found at Blue Moon Estate Sales.

The allure of estate sales lies not just in the items themselves but in the curated collections, storied histories, and often unmatched quality. In order to find an upcoming sale, Blue Moon Estate Sales makes it easy to discover local treasures in your neighborhood. With our user-friendly location search, discovering the next estate sale adventure becomes effortless. 

Plan Your Schedule

Before embarking on your estate sale hunt, it’s important to plan your schedule accordingly. If you’re looking to spend a day exploring multiple sales, be sure to start early to maximize your time. Begin by mapping out the locations of the estate sales, taking note of their opening times and distance from each other.

Additionally, you should take a look at some of the available items listed online to get a better idea of what to expect at each estate sale. This way, you can focus on specific items or categories, such as furniture, artwork, or jewelry, and prioritize the sales that will feature these items. You can browse our website listings or sign up for our weekly newsletter to see sale previews in your email inbox each week.

Tips for Finding Suitable Items

Searching for the perfect piece for your home or office requires dedication, commitment, and time. The most important tip we can provide you is simple: take your time. Don’t rush the process or settle for an item that you “sort of” like. The perfect piece of furniture, clothing, or trinket will arrive—usually when you least expect it.

To make sure you’re prepared for an all-day shopping adventure, we’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks to make the entire experience enjoyable and successful.

  • Bring a tape measure: There’s nothing worse than finding a coffee table or television console that fits your aesthetic perfectly but having no idea whether or not it will fit in the space. By bringing a tape measure with you, you will know the dimensions, and decisions can be made about purchasing the item. Have measurements written down before venturing out to explore an estate sale. This way, you’ll know with certainty what type of artwork, lamp, or appliance will complement the area.
  • Bring photos: When you take photos of your home or office, it’s easier to picture the item actually living in the space. This also gives you a much clearer perspective of how well it complements your other decor, paint colors, and overall theme of the room.
  • Know your budget: Consider how much wiggle room you have and think of a few things on your wishlist. Look for items you need, but leave some flexibility for items that surprise you.
