There are some people who love to buy the newest products on the market, whether it be technology or cars. But, there are also a lot of us out there who absolutely love the history of all kinds collectible items. (And Sal at Judy’s Jewelry Antique and Estate Jewelry is one of those collectible connoisseurs). What exactly is a collectible and why do people fall in love with certain categories? A collectible is anything that can be sold for more cash than it was originally valued at. Collectibles value increases over time. It may be because it was not mass-produced, or was only produced in limited quantities. Or it may be that it is a bit of nostalgia from a time gone by. One thing is for sure, if it’s an antique collectible, finding what you want, and in good condition, can be difficult. But at Judy’s Jewelry Antique and Estate Jewelry we’ve come across a large number of really fantastic collectibles when we’ve run estate sales for people. Here are a few reasons you should stop by our estate sales to look for your favorite collectibles.
Bargains—The general premise of an estate sale is that everything has to go—and we do mean everything. Although the reasons for having an estate sale might vary, when we run the sale we are typically looking to liquidate a bulk amount of items, usually over the span of just a few days for the people who’ve hired us. Following the simple rules of supply and demand, this means you can find a wide array of great deals at our next estate sale in Southwest Florida.
Joy—Whether you’re hitting the resale market as a hobby, or as a way to make a living, most people in this realm of shopping are motivated by the same things. Mainly, they enjoy it. They like the thrill of the hunt as they seek out and then find that next new thing they’ve been seeking. They like the sense of accomplishment that comes from making the discovery, completing the purchase, and having that coveted possession. They also feel a sense of satisfaction for getting a great deal on a purchase that will have either financial or sentimental value. At Judy’s Jewelry Antique and Estate Jewelry, we understand. We share your passion for shopping. And, as fellow shopping fanatics, we’re here to tell you that there is no better form of instant gratification than making purchases at one of our estate sales. You don’t have to wait for an item to be shipped to you. You don’t have to drive around or search for hours to make your find. While people who buy online still might be waiting for their new items to arrive, you already have your prize in hand, with a story to accompany it as you tell friends and family the tale of capturing your latest find.
Convenience—When you shop at our estate sales, everything is stored in a single location. Not only that, but the items you’re perusing have been organized, priced, and properly displayed. Gone are the days of you rifling through boxes of haphazard items. That means you can browse and shop at your own, leisurely pace.
Still not convinced? Well, if you’re reading this, you’re probably in the market for jewelry—either for fun or profit. And, you should know that the consensus is that jewelry is one of the “best buys” at any given estate sale. If you’re in the market for costume jewelry, you can expect some great discounts in particular, whereas fine jewelry pieces are likely to be sold closer to market value. And at Judy’s Jewelry Antique and Estate Jewelry, Sal really knows his jewelry, so you can be sure to find pieces that are genuinely valuable.
