This Just In: Rainbow of carnival glass shines on our eBay store

Mar 6, 2015

We jumped at the chance to purchase this collection of vintage carnival glass from a client in Alexandria, Virginia, who won’t have space to display it in his new home. We picked up more than 40 pieces in all and began placing them for sale in our OrionsAttic eBay store on March 6, 2015. See the Decorative Glass section to soak it all in. We hope to have the whole collection up within a few more days, including some Depression glass that came with it. My personal favorite so far is the L.E. Smith teal green carnival glass bowl. I’m not quite sure why that one grabs me. Maybe the color reminds me of the day I spent in Florida with my sister Heather, when I confronted my life-long fear of water by attaching...

Great thanks for estate sale and clean-out in Great Falls VA

Dec 16, 2014

Testimonial from Art Reinhardt of Great Falls, Virginia. Orion’s Attic performed a two-fold service on his huge home. We conducted an estate sale to sell his vast collection of antiques, collectibles and household items and also provided a clean-out service – leaving the home broom clean. (We also took a few items that didn’t sell to retail stores where we rent space.) Sept. 25, 2014 To:  Orion’s Attic: Facing a real dilemma of downsizing from a multi-bedroom home with a massive 36-year accumulation of “stuff”, finding your service was a godsend.  You not only exceeded your professional promises (and my expectations) but carried out your services flawlessly and ahead of schedule. This relieved us of so many burdens and enabled us to make a worry free move. Orion’s Attic are experienced professionals, trust worthy,...
