You can find some valuable, unique items from estate sales at our local, family-owned pawn shop. Discover the Howard’s difference.
Why would items from an estate sale show up at Howard’s Pawn and Jewelry? Because we are a smart,
hassle-free way for an estate to liquidate. Whether you’ve had a death in the family, or you just have too
much stuff, an estate sale is an easy way to get rid of the stuff and make some money. Here’s what you
need to know about how we manage items from estate sales, and why.
What Is an Estate Sale?
An estate sale is one
way a family or estate liquidates belongings.
They’re often significantly larger than a yard sale and can have items of
greater value. We tend to think of an estate sale as selling items that once
belonged to a person who has passed, but that’s just one source. An estate
sale can contain items people are selling in an attempt to downsize, as the
result of a divorce, to raise funds after a bankruptcy, to reduce belongings
before a move, or simply to make some quick cash by selling off household
and personal property. While these types of sales are often run by auction
houses or estate liquidators, some people choose to go another route – a
Why a Pawn Shop?
People tend to have a hard
time parting with things.
We’re keepers, and this is especially true after the death of a loved
one. It’s hard to get rid of the things that were once theirs, which is
how a pawn shop can make the process easier. During an already
difficult time, we can sell the collection without the estate having to
manage the process.
Collections from Estates
What we tend to see the most at Howard’s when
it comes to estate sales
are guns and jewelry.
If someone dies and leaves behind a collection of firearms, the family might
not know exactly what to do with all of it. That’s where we come in.
At Howard’s Pawn and Jewelry, we can evaluate the various guns, determine a fair value, and purchase the collection outright from the family. If it’s a significant number of guns, we’ll come to you to assess the collection, create a detailed inventory, and transport it to our shop. If there are fewer than 20 items, we may ask that you bring them to the store at your convenience. If this isn’t possible, we can work with you to accommodate your needs. Either way, we will give you a fair price and make it easy and stress-free for you to manage the guns left behind.
The same is true for jewelry from an estate. We can evaluate the pieces and offer a fair price for the collection, making it easy for us to display them in our store and sell them to the right customer. Instead of having to take the best offer from several random shoppers, we provide an easy way to manage the collection from an estate.
