Holt Ennis likes blazing speed of Orion’s Attic junk removal, estate sale services...

Apr 30, 2013

Testimonial from Holt Ennis. Orion’s Attic provided two services for his brother’s estate in Silver Spring, Maryland. We did a junk removal job to remove an enormous amount of trash and debris from the home — filling a 30-yard dumpster and using two huge bulk trash pick-ups from Montgomery County. We then organized the quality items that remained and conducted an estate sale that cleaned out the rest of the home, generated revenues for his brother’s beneficiaries and made the home itself ready to sell.

Large amounts of non-valuable material and ordinary household effects were mixed with the valuable items. I tried to separate out the more valuable items and sell...

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.
