In this day and age, we’re all looking for ways to reuse, reduce and recycle. Shopping at some of the estate sales Memphis has to offer can be a fun and effective way to save money and help the environment.


Shop Green and Save Some Money

At estate sales, we recycle antiques, collectables, furniture, home décor, electronics and appliances. We also sell these items at a deep discount (often 70% off of what you would pay at retail).

Going green at Memphis estate sales is easy. When you’re shopping for long-lasting, antique furniture in Memphis, consider heading out to an estate sale before going to a chain retailer. In earlier posts, we’ve mentioned that furniture purchased an estate sale will often outlast cheap furniture by decades. The longer you can use item, the longer it stays out of a landfill. Over time, this makes a big difference in reducing the amount of unwanted refuse that’s dumped.

The chance for environmental impact is not just limited to estate sale shoppers. If you have a large estate that you need to downsize, considering hiring a Memphis estate sale company before throwing unwanted belongings in the dumpster.

We’ve all heard the cliché “another person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” This can definitely apply to merchandise in an estate sale. Items that you may think are junk, may be worth a substantial amount to a collector. Before you start throwing away, call an estate sale professional.

Hiring a professional estate appraiser will prevent you from throwing away a priceless collectable or one-of-a-kind antique in the trash. This way, you can “go green” and earn some money in the process.
