Shopping Estate Sales

In my area of the country, as auctions dried up, estate sales began popping up.

They all seem to run 3 days—with discounted items on the last day.

My advice for shopping one of these is to go early as possible.  Walk through the house a couple of times to get a feel for what’s for sale, the cost, and if the seller has set prices.  Take a box or some bags for your purchases—and newspaper or tissue for glassware.

I have personally found as many (or more) bargains estate sale shopping—without waiting all day to bid on an item I never went home with.

What kinds of finds have you run across?
