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're a legitimate business, so we DO charge sales tax.
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 Neiman's.
Please make an effort to bring your own muscle (gardener/house boy) to load heavy furniture.
Terms of Sale
Our terms of sale are very simple:
All items sold as is, where is.
All sales final.
No refunds.
No returns.
Honestly, that is about as simple and direct as we can make it.

To be absolutely clear there is no warranty or guarantee of any kind for anything we sell. We don't sell on-line or over the phone so you decide for yourself, in person, if you want an item and if it will meet your requirements. Once paid for it belongs to you and you are responsible for transporting it to its new home.

This week, 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 town with a certified sense of humor, a state-of-the-art check-out system (designed by a GA Tech brainiac) 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! Sic transit gloria mundi.                                                                                                                                                                          

The process employs a hand crafted pre-famulated modial amulite, with phase detractors in a logrhythmic hydrocoptic panametric fam, employing magneto reluctance and capacitative ambivatient semi-boloic differential girdle springs with semisoidal depleneration.

This little jewel box of a house is stuffed with furniture (some good antiques, rugs, mirrors & artwork), dining room, kitchen, living room, and three bedrooms. The latest owner was a confirmed bachelorette, whose namesake is the executor; we'll call her Jenny.  Jenny doted on her niece, bought her wonderful presents from all of her European travels  and loved this old wooden frame house she lived in for several decades.
There is even a set of 9 sterling silver goblets, that she had engraved for each of her friends, sort of a Marietta version of the Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood: Ola, Grace, Sue, Madeleine, Dara, Gen, Clarice, Agnes & Kay - SWEET!                                                                                             

Some information about this house, if you're interested:
The house was built in 1929 by W. P. Stephens (well known Marietta pioneer citizen) for his son. This home has only been owned by two families. Please park on Hazel Street, as Whitlock has no parking provision and tends to be like a Daytona 500 race.

The owners have sold the house and want us to hurry up and finish our sale!

I recently received the signed contract for the sale, so please feel free to check this listing frequently, as we will continually update and add pictures/descriptions as the sale morphs and unfolds. We had to hold the sale Thursday- Saturday, as the closing date conflicted with our usual Friday - Sunday sales. ALL items purchased at this sale must be picked up from the house by Sunday evening!

Be sure to use the rear entrance of the house, as you'll likely mangle your Manolo's if you try to scale the rickety concrete steps from Hazel Street.

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 someone's 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. Usually, after staging a house for our estate sales,  I need a cigarette, a shot of whiskey, a Valium, a brown paper bag, a chamomile tea, a General Foods International Coffee, a shot of vodka, a bong hit, a slap upside the head, a mani-pedi, a pint of ice cream, and a long walk on the beach in soft focus.
All we ask in return is that you have fun, find some goodies and tell others about our sales.
