You can find great vintage furniture and accessories at local estate sales. Estate sales don’t just occur when grandma passes on. Many baby boomers are holding estate sales because they want to downsize to a smaller house. These homes often have mid-century modern treasures! Check out estatesales.net for notices about upcoming sales. Try to hit sales on the first day and make sure you bring cash and a big car so you can take your treasures with you. Bonus: if you’re looking for a fixer-upper house, watching for estate sales can be a great way to get leads (and a sneak preview) on houses that will hit the market soon. If you’re in the market for a fixer-upper, give me a call. I love the thrill of the hunt too and would love to help you out!
