Always Be Prepared for the Holidays
Get ready for the holidays by finding fine collector china or decorator items to enhance your holiday presentation. Some great examples are the perfect centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table, a vintage Johnson Brothers “Friendly Village” china set, or finding the perfect silver plate serving platter for your turkey. Estate sales are a one-stop-shop for finding the perfect holiday must have for Thanksgiving or Christmas!
Spode Christmas Collection China has been around since the 1980’s and the company issues a new piece each year to add to the massive collection. As each new piece emerges, another is discontinued- making the hunt for specific items that much more fun. If you happen on the right estate sale, it could offer dozens of pieces of the vintage Spode collections that have made such an impact on holiday traditions around the United States. Spode place settings average from $75-$150, so when you find these great finds at estate sales you are sure to find a money saving deal.
The perfect Thanksgiving table arrangement of fresh flowers can cost up to $200, but finding a faux flower arrangement can be a timeless money saver that looks just as good each and every year. Also, if you are hosting a wonderful gathering for this thankful holiday you can find place settings and china for your extra guests.
Anything that you need to prepare the meal is sold at an estate sale – crock pots, silverware, spices, wine glasses, place settings, carving knives and more.
Make an estate sale one of your planned shopping visits to get ready for the holidays.
