When is the Best Time to Shop an Estate Sale?

Best Time to ShopEstate sales hosted by Attics to Basements typically run Thursday to Saturday. All items are available on Thursday when the sale opens, but the best deals can be made just before the sale closes on Saturday.

So, what is the best time to shop an estate sale?

The best answer is, "It Depends." But, that's probably not the answer you were looking for.

If you are a value shopper (you look for the best price) Saturday is your day! Some of the more desirable items have likely been sold. However, there are plenty of deals to be made. And, Saturday is the day with the best discounts. In some cases, grab bags are available for only a few dollars. If you feel lucky, you could leave with some great stuff.

If you are a selective shopper (you look for the best or more desirable items) Thursday is the day for you. When the sale opens on Thursday morning, nothing has been sold — everything is still available. Selection is best on Thursday! Of course, if you find something you like, you can wait for Friday or even Saturday to see if it's still available and buy it then at a discounted price. But, if you see something you truly want or need, you should buy it on Thursday — there is no guarantee it will be there later.
