Estate sales are a great place to find antiques, furniture, collectibles, and common household items. Here in Mississippi, a common activity on the weekend is attending an estate sale. Even though the sale usually doesn’t start until 8 am, many people arrive a couple of hours early to secure a place in line. Items are marked with a price, so there is no bargaining. The second day of the sale, items are 50% off.
We went to a sale this past weekend, where I picked up a coupld of faux wood lamps, a retro magazine holder, and a bamboo kitchen table and chair set, all for under $100. You can check your newspaper for sales, or visit www.estatesales.net for sales in your area.
