Love Your Mother & Save Some Green
Shopping estate sales is a blast. You never know what you’re going to find, and oftentimes, you walk away with a smile and a one-of-a-kind treasure, all at a great price. Not only is estate sale shopping a fun hobby with great rewards, it’s an excellent way to save the world.

That’s a bit of a stretch, isn’t it?
No way! Shopping estate sales is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint and practice sustainability! In honor of Earth Day, we’re spreading the news. It’s up to us to do our part to protect this beautiful plant that we call home. After all, it’s the only one we have!
Think about it. It takes a whole bunch of machinery, gasoline, water and electricity to create and ship the billions of goods that are sold in big box stores every day. Unlike traditional retailers, we estate sale pros don’t have to use the elements or energy necessary to run a brick and mortar storefront. We temporarily set up shop right in the home which means a lot less stress on our earth and our natural resources!
When it comes to reducing waste, we act as a great line of defense in making sure that perfectly useful, beautiful, collectible and downright cool pieces don’t end up in landfills. When we conduct a sale, our number one goal is to find new homes for once-loved items! It’s truly amazing to know that each piece we sell goes on to live a whole new life with an excited new owner. Over the years, our franchise locations have re-homed thousands upon thousands of lightly used, quality goods, and that feels pretty great!
Whether you’re searching for something to accent your home, complement a collection, use in your workshop or kitchen, wear on a date, drive around town, upcycle or even stock in your own store, sourcing that special something by shopping estate sales makes a difference! You’re increasing the lifetime of each and every treasure you find, not to mention supporting your local economy. Every little bit helps!
