Thanks to everyone who made Bowie estate sale great!

Apr 28, 2014

Thank you, Bowie, Maryland! We never have enough time to thank everyone personally for the tremendous support you give us at our estate sales. While a 60-second video and a note here can’t fully express our gratitude, do click on the Bowie estate sale video for a more personal gesture. The sale exceeded all of our expectations. We cleared out most of the house, connected people with all kinds of treasures they love, created great new car restoration projects for several buyers and even found a new home for the humongous rusted dump truck in the field. A man with a love for “ostentatious” yard art claimed it thanks to a friend who stopped by the sale. We also thank all the shoppers who provided us leads for future estate sales and buying opportunities. Double...

The joy of being wrong — you never know what’s behind the next door...

Mar 15, 2014

I hit the ground running on a recent morning, knocking out a little marketing from the ol’ home office and then dashing across the Maryland line to a moving sale in Northwest, D.C. I was excited, my picking engines roaring and my pockets full of cash. The family running the sale had announced it on a neighborhood list serve — hyped it up good and said only people from the neighborhood would be allowed in on the first day. Awesome. The fact that I am almost always wrong about what I think I’ll find on a buying run — how good or bad it will be — had already faded from my mind. This had to be a good sale, right? I make it through the door first. The place was a mess. It...

Thanks to everyone for massive turnout at McLean estate sale!

Mar 14, 2014

On behalf of our entire team here at your favorite anti-snotty estate sale firm, we would like to thank everyone who made last weekend’s McLean VA estate sale a tremendous success.  We miss you already. Turnout was massive and our client is thrilled that you all cleared his house for him! At the risk of cuing up Academy Awards music, we would especially like to thank the exceptionally patient people who arrived long before the sale started, got numbers and waited in line to get in. We would like to thank the people who packed the jewelry room and made all that glitters disappear — and the great Fairfax County police officers who protected it. We thank the shoppers who took time to teach us something about items we were not that familiar with. We...
