At estate sales, people find more than just “stuff”

on March 25, 2013

Every weekend there’s a sign posted on some telephone pole for an estate sale.  Maybe you’re someone who follows the signs, but if you’re not, you might be surprised by what people can get out of these sales.

Listen to the audio piece to hear more about fans of Oakland’s estate sales and the people who make them happen.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
    both equally educative and interesting, and let me
    tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

    We appreciate this information on this site. We have been in the estate sale business since 1993.
