Why Shop Estate Sales?
From Antiques to Collectibles to Fine Jewelry Estate Sales are a Treasure Trove Awaiting Your Discovery
When you’re looking for vintage, antique, or just unique items to add to your collection, where do you shop? If you haven’t considered estate sales, then you should. Even Martha Stewart vouches for estate sales as a great method for finding valuable items ranging from the common to the exotic! In this article, we at Judy’s Jewelry Antique and Estate Jewelry, your trusted local antique dealer in Fort Myers, will explore the benefits and enjoyment that come from shopping our estate sales for your next find.
The Trials and Tribulations of Shopping for Collectibles
You’re ready to track down that antique piece or collectible you’ve been wanting for weeks. Not all shopping experiences are created equal, and for collectors like you, some of the most popular options carry at least some amount of risk and frustration. Let’s take a look at some of the options people typically use, and then compare them to estate sales.
Online—You could spend hours scouring through Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, eBay, Etsy, and all the other usual sites just to get a single item you’ve been seeking. Then what? There’s no telling if you’ve overpaid or been scammed until you receive your package in the mail—if you receive it at all.
Flea Markets—Are you prepared to walk thousands of steps and dig through mountains of items you’re not interested in, all in the hopes of discovering that one special find?
Garage Sales—These can be truly hit and miss. Nothing can be more demoralizing than driving to 10 houses in a weekend only to come up empty-handed.
With any of the above methods, you also run the risk of paying for counterfeit knock-off merchandise—shelling out top dollar and getting ripped off. You work hard for your money, and your free time is precious, so why should you continue to shop in one of these dissatisfying and frustrating ways? Whether you’re shopping for your business or personal pleasure, you need to change up your routine. You should be shopping at our professionally run estate sales.
At Judy’s Jewelry Antique and Estate Jewelry, when we run an estate sale, we take the time beforehand to go through everything in the house and organize it well for when customers show it. It’s not like a messy garage sale, making it much more fun to shop it
