Outstanding Estate Sale - LINDA SHOGREN ANTIQUES
TAG SALE: For those of you who have never attended an estate/tag sale, here are a few things you need to know.
First, this is an in the home tag sale -in other words - everything in the house is tagged and priced. This is not an auction. When you enter the home, you are free to purchase any and everything in the home at the price shown on each of the items. Every item in the home will be priced. There is no haggling on prices.
SIGNING IN: The sale will start at 8:30 am. A sign up sheet will be posted at the front day the morning of the sale. When you arrive, sign the sheet on the
door and stay on the premises until numbers for entry are given out at 8:00 am. If you sign the sign-up sheet - regardless of WHEN you signed it, you are obligated to stay on the premises until the door opens for the sale. If you sign and leave, your name will be removed from the list and you will have to re-sign once you return. No exceptions! Please sign your name only - do not sign for family members or friends who have yet to arrive at the sale.
PAYMENTS ACCEPTED: We accept the following means of payment: Cash, Checks (with two forms of identification), and charge cards. A 3% fee will be added to all purchases made with a charge card. All checks must have the following information: phone numbers of home, cell and place of business, current address and driver's license number. NO other checks will be accepted. There will be a $50.00 check fee for all returned checks - regardless of reason. Those returned checks not made good within a 7 days period from notification, will be turned over to the Attorney Generals office and your check will be posted at all future sales until said check is paid in full.
SOLD STICKERS: You are welcome to use your own sold stickers - even though our workers are there in each of the rooms to mark things for you - but your sold stickers must have you name and phone number on each sticker. If a sold sticker appears on an item and we cannot identity the owners within a few minutes, we will remove the sticker and the item returns to the active sale. Make sure you want to purchase and item because if you mark something sold, it is yours! There will be no removing of sold stickers once they are placed on an item! If you have questions, please see one of the workers.
EARLY SALES/PREVIEW: There are NO early sales and NO previews of the sale. Pictures and descriptions are on the web and should you have a question, please feel free to contact me via the website to answer any questions you might have concerning a particular piece. If you see anything in the pictures, rest assured that those items WILL be at the sale when we open up. Our workers are not allowed to buy anything from our sales until after the doors have been open for at least 2 hours. We want everyone to have a fair and equal chance of purchasing anything that has been advertised and photographed on the website .
BIDS: On the first day of the sale, a customer can leave a written bid, offering at least 60% of the asking price. The bid sheets are located at each of the cashier's tables. These bids are sealed and opened by me at the end of the first day of the sale. I do not reveal anyone's bid so please do not ask me to do so. The winning bidder will be notified by 6:00 Monday night. The winning bidder must return the second day to pay for the item they bid on. I will only notify the winning bidder.
HELP IN LOADING: We do have a couple of on site people to aid you in loading your furniture items - but they WORK FOR TIPS! If you do not plan on tipping them, then do not ask them to help you! And, please leave them a LEGITIMATE tip, based on what they helped you load. Fifty cents and a dollar are not a legitimate tip. We also have a moving company available to help you with larger items. His name is Jeff Boswell - and should you need his services, you can contact me during the sale - I will contact him for a price he will charge you to deliver your piece(s).
FINALLY: We are not responsible for accidents- nor is the home owner. Please enter the sale at your own risk - paying attention to the caution signs posted all around the home.
I am open to all inquiries as to price, location, size etc on any particular items in the sale. If you wish further information, please feel free to email me via this website and I will be happy to respond to you. Please note: the last time I will be monitoring this website will be the night before the sale. I will not see or be able to respond to your emails the morning of the sale. I prefer you request additional information through this website and not calling me on my cell phone. Thank you for your understanding!
