Falls Church VA estate sale features ladies watches, paintings, military uniforms and more...

Apr 29, 2013

A stunning array of sparkly ladies’ wristwatches and costume jewelry gave us a bout of light blindness when we first walked into the home of our May 4-5 estate sale at 1918 Pimmit Drive, Falls Church VA. View hundreds of photos of the sale on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/orionsattic. The elegant yet affordable watches, though, are just the start of a sale that packs a mountain of fun finds into a small home.

Live edge furniture craftsman makes public debut May 4 at Falls Church estate sale...

Apr 26, 2013

Orion’s Attic is adding a twist to the Falls Church estate sale featured above: We’re inviting Washington D.C. furniture maker James Navarro, Jr., of Live Edge Studio to make his public debut. Navarro makes handcrafted furniture with natural — or “live” — edges on a private commission basis but will offer several pieces to the general public for the first time at the Attic’s May 4-5, 2013 estate sale in Falls Church, Virginia (1918 Pimmit Drive). Navarro will be on hand Saturday May 4.) “I like to build organic, live edge furniture,” Navarro says. “I used to work in the environmental community and spent a lot of time fighting for healthy forests.

The gentleman hoarded tools — we’ve found a number...

Glenn Dale “Fun House” sale a hit — if only we had taken pictures...

Apr 11, 2013

We billed our April 6-7, 2013 estate sale in Glenn Dale, Maryland as the “Fun House” sale. Turned out to be exactly that. Won-ok and I love hosting these events because they’re not just about selling things and making money; they’re about helping clients eliminate headaches while connecting people with treasures they’ll love. The Glenn Dale sale created many great moments that put big smiles on the faces of shoppers and sellers alike. We only wish we had taken pictures of the sale while it was taking place. Take the eight-year-old boy who approached the pay counter and asked about the price of a toy figurine that had lost its tag. “Sir,” the youngster began, “How much is this?” I was so stunned by the fact that he was so polite that I knew I...
