Buying jewelry wholesale at estates sales is
actually quite easy. In fact, in most cases, this is
the easiest way to get very rare or old pieces at or
below jewelry wholesale prices! There is, however,
a method to the madness when it comes to walking
away with an heirloom piece at a rock bottom price!
Most people have estate sales when a person has
died. Unless the person was extremely wealthy, an
appraisal of all of the items that will be sold is not
done…and in most cases, the people holding the
sale are heirs that simply want to cash in. They
have no idea what the real value of what they are
selling is. Furthermore, these sales are often run
just like your average garage sale, with items
marked at incredibly low prices! You can literally
walk away with thousands of dollars of jewelry for
just a few dollars.
Even if the jewelry is not that valuable, the pieces
of the jewelry may be of some use to you when you
are constructing your own pieces. You can
carefully take the pieces that you buy at estate
sales apart, and save the reusable gems, chains,
settings, and other pieces. You can typically buy
these pieces far below jewelry wholesale prices!
