8108 Mesa Drive, Suite A-100 "An Estate Sale in a Shop!"
Sometimes there are good reasons not to have a sale in your home, such as location, lack of parking, quick home sale, subdivision restrictions, or not enough items to sell.
We can facilitate your move or estate liquidation. We specialize in downsizing situations and also work with storage facilities. For a fee, we offer a packing team complete with boxes and wrapping paper to carefully pack up your treasures. Items should be clean and in good condition. If not, you will be charged a cleaning and/or repair fee which will be deducted from your check.
We will research, advertise, and will take into consideration pricing suggestions from you, however we will have the final determination on pricing all items. Pickup from our professional movers is available for a fee which can also be deducted from your first check.
All merchandise brought into our shop will be showcased for 60 days or three sales. Items that are $75 or over will only be reduced 25-30% per sale until sold. At the end of that time, they can be reclaimed or we will donate them for you. Checks will be mailed once a month along with an itemized spreadsheet listing all items sold over $50. Other items will be listed as miscellaneous.
We can expedite the move for you or your loved one into their new home, apartment, or senior housing. We measure rooms, suggest furniture and decor, box up personal and other items and move these things for you. We then stage your new home and the remaining items can then be moved into our shop or your storage facility leaving the former home ready to be listed or leased.
We look forward to working with you.

>> Your parent has died or has gone into assisted living and you need to sell the house to settle the estate. We can keep you and your sister from fighting over the crocheted doilies. Plus, we can research and price items accordingly so that you don't sell a $1000 item for $10!
>> You're getting married and consolidating households. Do you really need two sets of sterling flatware?
>> You're getting divorced and want to keep it simple -- sell everything and split the profits as well as the sheets.
>> You're tired of high taxes, high house payments and are downsizing. Tell the children to take their junk and let's sell the rest, not move it to your new house!
>> You're moving out of state or out of the country and don't want to take more than a suitcase full.
>> The kids are grown and you're buying an RV and hitting the road to spend their inheritance. Don't store it, sell it!
>> You've stored your parent's treasures in your garage long enough, they'll forgive you for selling them!
If any of these scenarios sound like your situation, then the professionals in our company can assist you. Our focus is helping families liquidate, downsize, eliminate packed storage, and move on with their lives!
For many years, I dreamed about opening a shop, yet because of other commitments and our travel schedule, a standard retail store was out of the question. I tried the antique mall route for four years, and the rent versus income just didn't add up. Nearly four years ago, I had an epiphany -- what if I rented a space and opened it only a few days a month and operated it like an estate sale? Wow, what an idea!
We now have a 4 day sale here every two to three weeks with 60-80% new items each time. Discounts start on the 2nd day AND we still have our normal discounts on the last day of the sale!
This allows me to bring in estates from areas either too far away, from restricted communities, from occupied homes, from those who only have a partial estate, storage facilities, downsizing situations, or from homes sold too quickly for a sale onsite. For estates at the shop I am only accepting very nice items or collections such as furniture, antiques, china, crystal, jewelry, art, mirrors, lamps, books, decor, and unique items. NO clothes (unless vintage), shoes, tools, electronics (exceptions are flat screen TVs)!
If you can't deliver it, I can arrange pickup and delivery to the shop as well as the actual packing (boxes and wrapping paper included). Those costs will be deducted from your first check.
I really appreciate your support over the last eight years. I could not do this without all my wonderful customers, clients, staff, husband, and friends!
