Over the years, we at Amber Ostrich Estate Sales, we’ve gotten to know many of our shoppers by name and we love them all. But we notice quickly the differences in the way people shop at estate sales.
There are at least three different types of shoppers. There are the pros, there are the dabblers, and then there are the pickers.
In order to get the most out of shopping an estate sale, you must figure out which type you are.
The pro gets in line early and often. They come prepared to pile up items quickly and they don’t hesitate when making a purchase. These folks know what they want and they are fast.
Pros come prepared. They always have enough cash and they bring a good vehicle for hauling away their estate sale scores.
Dabblers come later on the first day and sometimes they don’t show up until the second day of a sale. They are more lackadaisical about their shopping, preferring to think about what they will purchase.
The pickers come early, middle, and late in the game. They like to see everything and they like to wait for the best deal.
Pickers are part “pro” in that on the final day of an estate sale, they still get there early and get in line before the doors open.
So, which kind of estate sale-r are you? A pro? A dabbler? Or a picker! We love them all!
Get ready, we are prepping for our next sale in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
