Commonly Asked Questions
Who comes to an estate sale?
Everyone! Over the past 20 years I have had the privilege of meeting and becoming friends with so many of my my customers. Estate sale shopping is fun! Our customers come from all walks of life and have just as many reasons for shopping your sale. Many people cherish the vintage items and are looking for something special. Some people are looking to add to their own home decor, and others want to resell items as a side business. All are welcome!
How long does the
estate sale process take?
Once we have a signed contract, we begin work. You can expect the entire process to take about a month, depending on scheduling.
Generally speaking, you can allow two to three weeks for cleanup, setup, pricing, staging, pictures, advertising, and your estate sale weekend. Then allow one more week for us to thoroughly clean out the property after the sale.
Will you adjust the prices to move goods during the estate sale?
The answer is YES. A normal sale will operate Saturday at full price and Sunday at up to 50 percent off. Our prices are negotiable unless agreed on prior to the sale.
What are the hours of most Estate Sales?
We start early! Our normal Saturday hours are 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. We often add Friday sales with flexible hours.
