Apr 17, 2013

We had a great turnout last Tuesday at our newsletter subscriber-only advance sale but even that didn’t make a dent in the bounty of good stuff stored inside the home of our next estate sale. The regular sale is set for this Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2028 Forest Hill Drive in Silver Spring. [See hundreds of photos on our Facebook page.] If you’re a tool guy or gal, you may faint when you come to our Silver Spring MD “Tool Time” estate sale.

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...
