IT took a few years but Rachel Reeves of Long Beach, Calif., found the exact bedside tables she was searching for at an estate sale last month. Made in the 1950s from cherry wood, they had a colonial revival look,
with tapered legs and carved ridges in the drawers. And at $20 for the
pair, the price was right.
It’s so exciting to have things that don’t look like what everybody else has,” said Ms. Reeves, 30, a stay-at-home mom with a 3-year-old and a baby on the way. She has been shopping at estate sales for affordable
furnishings since she and her husband bought a house five years ago.
“And I like that the tables had a life before I met them,” she said.
“They had meaning for someone else.”
Driven by nostalgia, thrift and the thrill of the hunt, more people like Ms. Reeves are shopping at estate or tag sales, lining up before dawn
to be the first to rummage through other people’s discards, hoping to
find inexpensive and one-of-a-kind items for their homes or to resell
online for extra spending money.
