We are currently booking sales for 2017!
On the calendar so far:
Chicago 1/13 & 14
Here is what some of our recent clients had to say about the work we did for them:
"Kathy, thanks for the terrific job that you and your organization did on our Estate Sale. Our belongings were shown in a professional and appealing presentation. The care that you showed for maintaining our home during the sale was outstanding and very much appreciated. We would highly recommend your services."
"We were overwhelmed, and you helped us put everything into perspective and move forward. You were so patient explaining how the estate sale process would work, and we were very comfortable leaving it all in your hands. Something that we had been wringing our hands over for months, you accomplished in just a couple of weeks. Even the neighbors told us how professionally you handled the large crowd and showed respect for the neighborhood. To us, that was a huge plus!"
"We had no idea all that 'stuff" mom and dad had been storing away was worth so much! We loved how you promoted it on your website, and how easy it was to just sit back and let your team handle it all. Thanks again!"
"I just want to say Thank you....for having to deal with the craziness that came along with this huge project that you & Jay took on. I think you did a phenomenal job and couldn't be happier with the effort that was put into the sale. You made this overwhelming project seem like a piece of cake. And I really appreciate the tasteful words you used to describe the sale in your ad. It made me feel proud (to think of my dad as a collector) instead of embarrassed (hoarder, even though he was) of the mess that was left behind. Thank you!!!!!!"

REMEMBER THE ESTATE SALE GOLDEN RULE:
One Man's Junk often IS Another Man's Treasure.
1. DON'T THROW ANYTHING AWAY until we've had a chance to look at it! Please take that literally!
2. DON'T GIVE ANYTHING AWAY, DON'T DONATE ANYTHING, and for goodness sake,
3. DON'T SELL ANYTHING until we've had a chance to look at it!
We did a sale in which more than HALF the value of the estate had already been bagged for donation. They thought it was just old clothes and bric a brac... we uncovered vintage designer pieces and rare pottery pieces that were among the first items sold and the most expensive things in the whole house! One day later, they would have all been gone. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!
EVERYTHING that can be sold legally can be sold at an estate sale .... and it will always be to the estate's benefit to let us find the buyer for you. We're as able to sell items worth thousands of dollars as we are to sell something for a buck. We do it all the time ... and that's why experience matters.
4. Don't think it's not collectible just because it's not a "fancy antique". The most collectible (and sometimes most valuable) items in an estate these days are circa the 1920s through the 1960s. It'll be in the kitchen cabinets. It'll be in the attic. It'll be tucked into a cupboard in the basement that hasn't been opened in 50 years.
It'll be the old costume jewelry in the dresser drawer, the vintage hat way back in the closet, or maybe the old bike in the rafters of the garage. It's behind the basement bar. It's in with the box of old Christmas decorations (or better yet: old Halloween decorations!).
It's often printed on a piece of paper, or a matchbook, or a ticket stub, or a photograph, postcard, brochure, menu, placemat, or napkin.
Spotting the "good stuff" takes years of experience, research, and instincts. We've got all that ... and we want to put it to work for you.
We've sold everything from Aluminum foil to Zithers, so keep it right where it is until we've had a look!
