The first weekend in August, we'll be ready to throw open the doors on another of our infamous estate sales. Infamous, you ask? Yes, we're the only estate sale company in the ATL with a certified sense of humor and a state-of-the-art check-out system, designed by a GA Tech braniac, so that most of the items are barcoded. You won't have to stand in line forever, while an invoice is hand written by a fossil, like me!
This couple has made the timely decision to sell everything in their house, make a life-altering move and start from scratch. They are both on their second marriage (we must always get that starter marriage outta the way) and the house is stuffed with furniture (some good antiques) from three households. This house has two bedrooms, a downstairs office, dining room, kitchen, den, breakfast room, a garage FULL of whatzits and doohickeys - mainly Christmas decorations, tons of good art supplies and last but not least, a yard maintenance department that'll have your neighbors GREEEEEN with envy.
Yes, the house is also for sale. Represented by the lovely and talented Alison Hutson-Douglas, of Sotheby's International Reality, you can reach her directly at 404-386-5260; click on the link for a comprehensive listing: http://www.sothebysrealty.com/eng/sales/detail/180-l-1486-4ncydq/elegant-buckhead-living-atlanta-ga-30342.
Please feel free to check this listing frequently, as we will continually update and add pictures/descriptions as the sale morphs and unfolds. We emptied the attic and a couple of their storage units, so the house is completely full of everything you need and a few things you don't want.
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.
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 3247.
