Carole Kralicek, The AZ Wardrobe Lady owned and operated four successful antique malls in Bismarck/Mandan North Dakota. Families brought entire estates for her to sell in those stores. Often a full grain truck or horse trailer of items would be dropped off and Carole would be told to "send money".
Her reputation was that of a very honest dealer.

Eventually, her team began conducting sales in homes. She also conducted "road shows" for non profit groups at no charge to them. This number now totals 52. She also took part in an afternoon call in radio show to appraise items.
Following her husband's death in 2005, Carole moved to the Twin Cities to be near two grandaughters. She began conducting sales for friends and family and in 2016 completed her 425th sale!!
Carole provides the first home visit and verbal appraisals free. She advises families about what she feels may be their best option to dispose of items. Sometimes, a family wishes to conduct their own sale and she prices those items for a fee.
Since purchasing a permanent home in Mesa, Az, Carole plans to conduct sales in the Mesa area. Retirement is wonderful and the opportunity to meet and work with interesting people during estate sales is the best of both worlds.
