OA receives most viewed estate sale company in Maryland award

Apr 9, 2013

Countless shoppers at our April 6-7, 2013 “Fun House” estate sale in Glenn Dale, Maryland told us they had to drive a few blocks down the road to find a place to park. That’s par for the course at Orion’s Attic as we’re pretty good at drawing big crowds to our sales.  People love the kinds of homes we take on and they love the fair prices we offer.

NovaGold makes selling jewelry transparent and profitable

Mar 16, 2013

Selling quality gold, silver and jewelry can be a tricky, mysterious process that often leaves sellers uncertain about whether they received a fair deal.

We picked up Tomoko and Kaz at a D.C. hotel and headed north. Bryce Harper and his Hagerstown Suns teammates weren’t slated to take on the Asheville...
