An Estate Sale is a way of liquidating the belongings of a family or estate. These are usually much more than garage or yard sales. They are used when someone is in need of a way to sell items due to downsizing, moving, divorce, bankruptcy, or death. The public is invited into the home and given the opportunity to purchase any item that is priced for sale. At times there are items that are not for sale because the family has decided to keep them or new owners of the house have made them part of a contract to buy the house.

ESTATE SALE ETIQUETTE
We ask that everyone respect others in line and treat them as you would expect to be treated. Hold your place in line with your presence and do not cut in line. Do not rush the door when the sale opens. Do not block others from entering. Everyone has just as much right to be there as you, whether they are making a living at it or just enjoying a day out. If someone picks an item up, do not grab at it. If something is marked sold do not remove the sticker. Do not hoard items you do not intend to buy. Honor your bids.
