Okie dokie folks. Lots of people ask me where I get the stuff in my house and I reply "omg.. this amazing estate sale!!!!" (insert huge Melissa Mack shiny teeth smile)... and they reply "oh, yea... my mom goes to garage sales all the time." Ummmmm, NO! No. No. No. No. No.
Estate sale does not equal garage sale. Your mom does not go to estate sales. Your mom goes to some junk sale in her friends front yard. (No offense to your mom's friend... or her front yard.) But, NO! Not the same!
With that being said, I would like to clear up the difference between an estate sale and a garage sale. I will also give you some helpful tips and show you pictures of some of my favorite purchases.
