While this may be your primary goal, there is something else you can do along the way: learn!

Here are three interesting things you can learn by spending time at an estate sale:

1. The value of particular items. Not only can this be interesting, but it will give you the knowledge you need to make more informed purchases in the future. It may even give you the idea to sell some of your own items.

2. What others are interested in. What types of items are for sale? Did the person have a big collection of something, such as sports cards or art? It can be fascinating to see what other people have in their home.

3. How other buyers react. Let’s face it: you won’t be the only person at the estate sale. Don’t hesitate to watch others, converse with friendly people, and share your own stories. You never know what you can learn by opening up to other people at the estate sale.

Every estate sale is unique. Every estate sale can teach you something special. If you open up and are willing to learn, you never know what type of knowledge you will collect.
