ESTATE SALE TRENDS PART ONE
Believe it or not, but there are trends within the estate and tag sale culture. Frequent shoppers realize when certain buying or selling tendencies emerge and know how to act on them.
The Beanie Baby mania ended in 1999. For a few years, there were retired dolls, dubbed valuable and hard to find, mostly with a high asking price. But now Beanie Babies are mostly sold in heaps, well below the insane asking prices.
Kinkade’s famous oil paintings were once prized. But the incessant reproduction and licensing of his goods put the artist and his work into a commercial limbo. To many stores began to sell “Thomas Kinkades,” and before you know it, the value dropped. Now you can hardly tell the difference.
At Full of Surprizes, we are aware of these rising and falling trends. We understand how to correctly tag and market a particular item so that it is properly liquidated. If you need to hold an estate sale in Long Island New York, we can help.
