Why would someone have an estate sale if everything in their house is from Walmart?


We went to an estate sale and everything in the house was from Walmart or Gordmans.. the clearance stickers were still on the items… and they were asking more for the items than the clearance stickers???? WTF? I thought estate sales were typically for people who have somewhat valuable item in their home.. not walmart clearance specials.
