We want to thank all our customers that have been coming to our sales and hope you will continue to come in the future, our "sell-through" rate has been great. very little left at ALL our sales. we are often asked if we do "numbers", the answer is no, you can make your own but we don't "honor" any numbers. . .all we expect is a single file line when we open . . . on the other hand, we don't ask you to call for numbers (that's a good one) and we don't offer you free coffee and donuts or any of that nonsense . . . we are often asked, "do you open early". .the answer is yes... if we are ready... we open... .we are here to sell and you're here to buy. . . there are lots of "johnny come lately" estate sale companies trying to cash in on the TV estate sale and auction craze, we have been in the antiques and estate business for 30+ years, and have been successful for a few simple reasons . . . we offer great, fresh estate items at great prices, plus fast efficient service and more than anything IT 'S FUN TO ATTEND ONE OF OUR SALES!
Thanks. . .Brian & Bill
