Target the Suburbs!
Many great pieces are found in the homes of the rich and famous, but when you live in a unique city like Washington DC, the best things can be found in the homes of the wealthy politicians, the CEO’s of one of the many Fortune 500 Companies, or the wonderful authors, artists and activists that can be found in the area. Moreover, when an estate sale opens the doors to their private lives, who wouldn’t want to explore? When researching to find the next hot spot for an estate sale, target the suburbs. Though many are able to find rare finds in the bigger city row homes and condos; some of the best can be found in the wealthy suburbs that are on the outskirts of the cities. In the DC Metro Area, neighborhoods like Alexandria, Arlington, McLean, Great Falls, Bethesda, and Chevy Chase are some of the most affluent suburban areas in the United States. You, as an estate sales shopper, are bound to find some great antiques and possibly exceptional jewelry. There is no way to pinpoint which sale is best to go to on the weekends since every sale is different, but some companies offer consistently better events than others. Exploring the suburbs would be a great way to find it! It isn’t a bad idea to look around at more than one estate sale, might as well when you are in the neighborhood, right? When you do this you can heighten your shopping success rate, which we all like to hear. Map out your adventure and discover the many estate sales opportunities in the area, and have an idea of what you are going out on the prowl for!
