A “beary” good day of picking in Silver Spring MD and beyond...

Oct 15, 2014

Won-ok and I got up early on a recent Saturday and pounded the streets in our Silver Spring, Maryland neighborhood during a community- wide yard sale. We’re always on the prowl for great stuff to buy and sell and it’s not often that we get to do so in our own back yard. The first dozen sales we visited tanked. Nothing there for us. We hit pay dirt on the next stop, catching a former foreign correspondent for a newspaper (yes, that job used to exist) just as he was setting up.

Daughter appreciates McLean estate sale service

Aug 28, 2014

Ann Reavey     Testimonial from Ann Reavey.  Orion’s Attic conducted an estate sale for her father in August 2014. We sold almost all of the contents of the home, consigned a few high-end pieces remaining from the sale, transported a number of other items to charity and left the house broom clean. Fantastic!  Thank you so much! I can’t tell you how pleased I have been with working with you and your crew. This process has been difficult logistically and emotionally, thank you for making it much easier for me on both fronts. Please know that I will enthusiastically recommend you to others!...
