Estate Sale News - December 2015


Estate Sale News - December 2015

Every month we scour the internet for the latest estate sale and auction news to share with you.  We also add a few links we think you'll love if your into estate sale shopping.

Estate Sale & Auction News

Mound City Auctions and GWS Auctions of California have announced the largest abandoned property auction in California history. This is an onsite only auction and contains a massive amount of items including jewelry, cars, boats, antiques, collectibles, appliances, antique furniture and what really intrigues us -- thousands of unsearched boxes. Public preview exhibitions will be held on 1/7/16 & 1/8/16. The auction itself occurs on 1//9/2016 at 9 AM.

153 items from JFK's Palm Beach estate are going up for auction on Saturday, January 23rd. Items up for auction include furniture, including the twin beds the President and his brother slept on as children, and family portraits. The estate, known as the Winter White house was the family's vacation home. Bids will be accepted online, on the phone and in person. You can view the catalog on the Leslie Hindman Auctioneers website.

Links We Love

Expert Estate Sales by Lisa Kroese is sharing news, tips and trade secrets in her estate sale coaching group on Facebook. We are super impressed with the quality of information - this is a great resource for estate sale companies looking to grow their business.

Melanie of the Fiscal Family shows us how beautiful and frugal it can be to take an estate sale piece and 'redo' it. We love the finished product! What a transformation.

Love fruitcake (we do, yes really!). We also love that Crystal Maurizi of The Crystal Chef shared a fruitcake recipe she got from a collection of recipes she bought at an estate sale - Helen's fruitcake to be exact, named after the original owner of the recipe collection! Looks yummy.

Heartbreaking letter found at an estate sale.
