You are driving down a street and see a vivid neon estate sale sign – you follow the arrow, continue to follow it and arrive [usually ten minutes later] to a house that is so busy you cannot find parking. This is the story of my life and something that has happened to me time and time again.
I must admit I am a little ill prepared in moments and don’t check for upcoming estate sales in advance. Partially because my Saturday morning ritual is somewhat jammed with garage sales and partly because I have not found any regular “go to” resources that advertise them (Estate Sales & Auctions) in an easy to read or “one stop shop” calendar view.
Over the years I have added these websites below to “my favorites” they outline some regular estate sale and auction events in the Ottawa, Ontario area. I thought I would save you some search time…
- Mary Frances Estate Sales and Abraxas Ottawa (Estate Sales, Appraisals, Liquidation and more)
- MacLean and Associates (Estate Auctions, Storage Unit Sales and more)
- Michael Spooner & Sons (Estate Auctioneers and more)
- Heirloom Consignment & Estate Services
- Walkers Auctions (Auctions, Auctions and more Auctions)
- Kijiji (I look under Garage sales or Type in Estate Sale in the search box “All Ads”)
- UsedOttawa (Auctions & Liquidation Sales)
- Ken Finnerty Auctions (This is in the Kemptville area but it is so great it had to be mentioned)
