The sale starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. with no early entry or sales.
SIGN-UP SHEETS: Please stay on the premises once you sign ONLY your name to the numbered sheet posted on the door. The first 50 people in line will receive numbers a few minutes prior to the start of the sale and will be the first shoppers allowed to enter the door.
PRICING: Everything will be full price the first day and half price on the second day UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED. Only workers may mark items sold; we do not use stickers from other sales. You must give your name and phone number for items to be marked sold. We do not change or haggle on prices. Everything is sold “as is.”
RECEIPTS: The yellow copy of the sales receipt, which is the customer’s proof of purchase, will be checked as you exit the sale. When items are paid for but are to be picked up at a later time, the yellow copy must be presented. Everything must be picked up by 1 p.m. on the second day of the sale unless by prior agreement.
BIDS: Bids will be accepted on individual items that are priced $100 or more and all bids must exceed 60% of the posted original price. Bids by other customers WILL NOT be discussed or revealed. Bids will be opened at the close of the first day of business and the highest bidders will be notified between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Unanswered calls will result in offering the sale to the next highest bidder. Items won by bid MUST be paid for and picked up by 10:00 a.m. on the second day of the sale or the item will be offered for general sale.
PACKING: We have very limited boxes, bags and packing materials; please provide your own. We reserve the right to inspect bags if necessary. We are not allowed to pack or carry any items for customers. Movers are usually on site, but the price of tips, moving and delivery is solely between the customer and mover.
PLEASE NOTE: Sale locations are usually small and confined, so we ask that no baby strollers or large shopping carts be brought into sales locations. Most sales are in private homes and are not generally set up for handicap maneuvering. Customers enter locations at their own risk. Neither Michael Respess Estate Sales or the owner of the house is responsible for accidents.
Bathrooms are used for our personal storage and ARE NOT open to the public.
