Children at Estate Sales

Learn: Estate Sale Etiquette: Children

It is not a good idea to bring children to estate sales.  There are several reasons for this and most important is the safety of the child.  There are huge crowds present and a child may get hurt accidentally.  Also, it is most company's policy that if an item is broken that the customer pay for it.  Small hands and breakable items do not go well together.  Please think about a few things before bringing a child to a sale; child safety, company policy, other customers.  We have even seen people trying to bring a stroller into a sale. Try to imagine pushing a stroller around a crowded house.  What was the parent thinking? They weren't! You should know the policy of the company holding the sale.
