Precious resources

Visit these websites to buy, sell, and learn about antiques and old objects and to find local sales.

Estatesales.net: If you can bear the sometimes aggressive elbow-to-elbow crowds at estate sales (the payoff: fantastically low prices on stuff), then sign up for e-mail alerts for sales within a certain range of your location. The site also tracks tag sales and auctions.

Collectorsweekly.com: Contains fun, well-researched articles on collectibles, like “Black is Beautiful: Why Black Dolls Matter” or “Take That, Instragram: The Enduring Allure of Vintage Photographs.” The articles connect a compilation of current eBay auctions of related items, such as vintage cameras, and offer plenty of high-quality photos.

Tagsellit.com: This site is both a virtual tag sale (you can buy and sell objects or list your own tag sale), as well as a directory of garage, yard, and estate sales, flea markets, pawn shops, and consignment shops by state and ZIP code.  Download the smartphone app to find local sales events.
