Trending Items Sold at an Estate Sale or Downsizing Auction: June 2018

June was an exciting month for MaxSold! Not only did we have a TON of auctions this month, but we also helped so many customers find new homes for their used goods. We've seen a lot of articles lately about how "No One Wants Their Parents Stuff," and even videos of pianos being thrown into landfills! However, at MaxSold we are on a mission to reverse this trend. Re-use is the highest form of recycling, and although we may not always get 1000s or 100s of dollars for items, they are being re-used and re-purposed, and not ending up in a landfill! So with that being said, check out the monthly highlights below!
