3 Cool Ways to better Enjoy your Time at an Estate Sale

KeswickDo you enjoy spending time at estate sales? It doesn’t matter if you are looking to buy a car,boxing memorabilia, or simply looking around, this is an experience that is sure to put a smile on your face.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could take a few steps to increase your level of enjoyment? Here are three ideas to consider:

1. Connect with others in attendance. You never know when you could strike up a friendship with somebody who is attending the same estate sale as you. You already have something in common (the fact that you like to visit estate sales), so don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with those who appear friendly and willing to connect.

Tip: it can also be a lot of fun to speak with the person managing the estate sale. Talk about a great way to add enjoyment to your day. On top of everything else, this person can provide you with valuable information and advice.

2. Set out to learn something new. There is nothing more enjoyable than adding to your knowledge bank. From speaking with others to comparing items for sale to those in your collection, there are many steps you can take to increase your level of knowledge.

Before you ever leave home, set goals based around what you want to learn. This will ensure that your time spent at the estate sale is of great value, even if you don’t end up making a purchase.

3. Never settle. Let’s face it: you may be so intent on making a purchase that you talk yourself into buying something you really don’t want. There is no point in doing this. You know what you want and how much you want to pay. Don’t stop until you find it. This may be a challenge upfront, but over the long run it will add enjoyment to the estate sale experience.

By implementing one or more of these tips, you will better enjoy your time at the next estate sale you attend.
