Terms

We accept cash, credit & debit cards as payment, with a 3% credit card fee - nothing's free, someone has to pay for those sky miles.
We have a few boxes available, but if you feel motivated, please bring boxes and packing material - you'll need them! Always bear in mind that we're an estate sale company, not Nieman's.
Please make an effort to bring your own muscle (gardner/house boy) to load heavy furniture.

This estate sale came about when the owners decided to move to Presbyterian Village, to relax and enjoy independent living - no more mowing grass!  They were well-known dorm parents on the GA Tech campus for 31 years - lovely couple. Can you imagine the stories they can tell!?!

 Do you enjoy estate sales? How about scrunging at yard/garage/thrift stores? Please realize that there is a huge difference between authentic estate sales and the other venues to get your fix. I personally love to dig through any type of sale (hence my Ph.D in shopping) to find a hidden treasure that just "speaks" to me.

Just a word to let you know that estate sales are a real business. Surprising, huh? Please realize that we are a contracted company, whose job is to sell the contents of someones home. We do not personally own any of the items available at a sale. When tempted to ask "Can you do better on the price?" - Sure, we can double it!  ;-)

Seriously, we do a lot of behind the scenes work to prepare a property for a sale. We price, clean, stage, move, hang, repeat, so that your shopping experience can be fun and rewarding. All we ask in return is that you have fun, find some goodies and tell others about our sales.

The revolution of 1789 destroyed his business in Paris and in 1792 he opened a factory in London, leaving his brother Jean-Baptiste to carry on the French branch. By the 1820's, Sebastian returned to France and the center of innovation once again shifted in Paris, where the Erard firm manufactured pianos used by Chopin and Liszt. In 1821, Sebastian Erard invented the double escapement action, which permitted a note to be repeated even if the key had not yet risen to its maximum vertical position, a great benefit for rapid playing. The double escapement action became the standard action for grand pianos and is used in all grand pianos currently produced. A true innovator in his field, Erard made many lasting contributions to the design of pianos and harps. 
Grand pianos are now simply classified by size. Ah, I'll take better pictures of this wonderful piano. It is an antique French piano, manufactured by the Erard Piano Co., Paris, France, serial #73,986.                                        Sebastian Erard was born in Strassburg, Germany in 1752 and at age 16 he settled in Paris, working for a harpsichord maker. It soon became apparent that Erard was a genius at finding ways around mechanical problems and he started designing his own pianos. In 1777, he produced his first piano. Over the next several years, he designed and experimented with various types of keyboard instruments. Erard made a combination of piano and organ with two keyboards for Marie Antoinette.  The revolution of 1789 destroyed his business in Paris and in 1792 he opened a factory in Great Marlborough Street, London. Seemingly he left his brother Jean-Baptist to carry on the French branch. In London, Erard was able to focus on building superior pianos without the distractions of political strife.
