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.
Lynn Godshall, owner of Estate Treasure Trove, is a regular member of the Association of Online Appraisers, an organization that complements her long-time, on-line shop at www.rubylane.com. 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, also selling from several antique malls including The Stalls in Buckhead, Sandy Springs Antiques and Interiors before it closed, Historic Roswell Antique Mall, and now City Antiques and Roswell Antiques and Interiors.
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; Mary Dial, long-time retail associate whose staging skills are unparalleled, Sue Griffin, whose real estate background enables her to see our staging efforts from the buyer's point of view, and make it even more appealing for prospects that come to the sale if it is still on the market. She was also a long-time retail staffer at one of the Sandy Springs malls where I was a dealer. 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!!
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 3166.
