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.

You CAN do it. What is that you ask? You CAN drive outside the perimeter to attend a good estate sale. This sale has nothing to do with Swahili or singing swans, but it IS located in Suwanee. Kind of lyrically lulling, no? Feel free to check back often, better pics will be available as the sale morphs and unfolds. 

We were contacted by excited homeowners who have decided to move cross-country (L.A.) by achieving escape velocity from the confines of the ATL.  They were known to haunt a few antique stores, antique shows and consignment shops. Their home reflects their taste level and there's something here for just about everyone.  

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.

Aretha Franklin first sang about our company in 1967 - all we're asking for is a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
