    - - Hi everyone, my name is Lindsey with Maxsold and we are pleased to bring you trending items in downsizing estate sales from this past month. There have been numerous articles about no one wants your parents' stuff. And to add to this, CBC and New York Times have released videos about pianos ending up in landfills. The video is heartbreaking. At Maxsold, we are on a mission to reverse this trend and not just for pianos, but for everything. And the results of this environmental cause by Maxsold is promising. Re-use is the highest form of recycling and Maxsold buyers are some of the best at coming up with ideas for things others no longer want or need. Even if pieces like pianos don't go for thousands, or even hundreds of dollars, they do end up in a new home opposed to a landfill. So, starting at item number 10, we have a baby grand piano sold on Maxsold for $1,051. They don't always do this well, but at least they're paid for and taken away by buyers, as opposed to the owner paying to get those into the landfill or put them into storage, paying storage fees for decades. Item number nine. As Maxsold does not cherry pick items, everything is sold, even pots and pans like these in a Maxsold Virginia downsizing auction which sold for $295. Item number eight. Mason jars are very popular and these sold as part of a downsizing sale in Ontario for $291. Item number seven. At Maxsold we do auctions across the US and Canada. And a trend that we've seen is reel to reel and it is making a comeback. These sold for $285 at a Maxsold downsizing online auction in San Francisco. Item number six. Speaking of music, these vintage speakers are hot right now. These sold for $1,630 at a Maxsold downsizing auction in Pasadina, California in the Los Angeles metro. Item number five. At Maxsold we sell items that are very unique. Some that you just don't often tend to see like this gas pump for $1,550 in Saverna Park, Maryland. Item number four. We sell outdoor items on Maxsold all the time like garden tools, wheelbarrows and we even see things like this on Maxsold. A wooden ladder with a rung missing which sold for $125. For sure, this would have ended up in a landfill if it weren't for Maxsold. Item number three. We find that despite Forbes and New York Times and other articles about no one wanting your parents' stuff, that Maxsold reverses this trend. We can still sell things like figurines and collector plates as part of our downsizing and estate sales. These Royal dolls and figurines sold for $55. Item number two. Who doesn't like spending time with friends and family at game night? These boardgames sold for $295 as part of a Maxsold downsizing auction in Bronx, New York. And as for item number one? A snowblower. Yep, we sell snowblowers in the height of the summer because at Maxsold we do downsizing and estate sales all year round. And we do sell lots of snowblowers. We sold this snowblower in Ontario as part of a Maxsold downsizing auction. Enjoy the summer knowing that winter is just around the corner. If you're planning to relocate down south this winter, yep it's tempting isn't it? Be sure to give Maxsold a call before your move so that we can help you sell everything. Show less
