Thrifty Gift Shopping Ideas

Here’s a great tip when it comes to gift shopping for your loved ones:  estate sales.  With a little luck and a bit of planning, you can find all kinds of great deals in one place—a good estate sale is the ultimate in thrifty one-stop shopping.

Mother’s Day is coming up in May, so how about showing mom how much you appreciate her by gifting her with a something unique?  How about a lovely porcelain bowl, Fenton glass, or a vintage brooch?   Looking for presents for the men in your life?  Think power tools, antique appliances, or baseball cards.

Some finds need to be fixed up and shown a little love, so if DIY is your thing,  get ready  to dive in with tools and paint!  Not into getting your hands dirty?   That’s alright, many items at estate sales have been gently used.

Whatever you end up going home with will be personalized and unique, not something from a big box store.   And just think, not only are you helping your bottom line, but the planet as well, by re-using and recycling!
