Welcome, Prospective Seller
Please find complete details about Estate Treasure Trove and answers to many of your questions concerning the estate sale process on our web site above. We address every aspect of the business from contracts to pricing, staffing, staging, timing, advertising, etc.
We price items so that they are competitive with other sales but when we encounter high value items, we price accordingly. For instance, we just sold a vintage, five-piece set of Hartmann luggage for $825.00. Also a 5" Newcomb College vase for $1200. And a 2-volume set of early Chinese architectural landmarks for $900. Our customers were amazed and delighted that we achieved such prices on items they hadn't given a passing thought. As we like to tell our customers, "We pay for ourselves because we know how to price".
Lynn Godshall, owner of Estate Treasure is a veteran of the antiques and collectibles trade. She started in the business in 1988 doing antique shows along the East Coast from Florida to Washington, D.C., and from Atlanta to New Orleans. Simultaneously, she operated booths in several Atlanta antique malls, and one in Gulf Shores, AL. Later she opened her own mall, and then started doing online sales in the mid 1990s on ebay also on rubylane. She has had space in several antique malls including The Stalls in Buckhead, Sandy Springs Antiques and Interiors before it closed, Historic Roswell Antique Mall, and later City Antiques and Roswell Antiques and Interiors. She has been a gold member of estatesales.net for eight years, allowing Estate Treasure Trove to appear high up in the weekly listing and enabling us to feature an unlimited number of pictures of your treasures.
Her fabulous staff includes Judy Trask, cashier whose barter company background as controller of a large barter group for many years qualifies her as the world's foremost host and check-out expert, not to mention her encyclopedic knowledge of jewelry, furs, and records; Mary Dial, long-time retail associate whose staging skills are unparalleled, Lori Lane whose talents for staging and organization are unmatched. She makes our sales even more appealing so you don't have to dig through boxes of jumble to find what you are looking for. We augment their splendid efforts from time to time with the talents of other experienced staffers.
We do three sales per month, and sometimes four, so please call us as early as possible about your plans, and don't throw anything away that we might be able to sell--even if you think it's junk!! In this business more is better.
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 382.
