Stewartsville Barnsale specializes in vintage sales by consignment, resale pricing consultation and appraisals, and partial contents, off-site sales for clients whose homes are logistically difficult or too small to hold a sale in the home.
Although we do whole-house on-site sales once in a while as well, the majority of our sales are set up gallery-warehouse style at our home base, usually combining two to three estates in one sale even or by advertising individual items of note in a marketplace setting and selling those items consignment style. This is similar to what auction houses do, simply without the auctioneer and without the urgency of having to unload the entire contents in one event weekend.
2018 was our 5th anniversary in business, and we have held over 125 estate sales to date. We are open and selling on a weekly basis throughout the year, full time, and our sell-through rate hovers between 60 to 80% for most of our sales, which is above-average in our industry.
We began over 5 years ago simply holding our own estate sale for our family's vast collection of antiques and vintage, and we are collectors and shoppers ourselves. So we understand the market from both the buyers' and sellers' perspectives. We treat every sale as if it were our own, and we have a great knowledge base with which to help customers find special items they are seeking.
Our warehouse in northern NJ is centrally located between New York and the Lehigh Valley, so we are easily accessible to several regions. We serve both the Lehigh Valley and upper Delaware River Valley as well as northern NJ. We are currently using appointment-only business hours as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Masks must be worn to visit our warehouse or any of our sales events.
We have a slightly different approach to estate sales- by taking the smaller jobs and combining them, offering customers easy delivery and even storage for large items, and by truly showcasing individual items through social networking, and presenting them with great ambience, we give our clients and customers an enhanced experience that keeps them coming back.
Our business or our items have been featured in local news media, internationally renowned pricing guides, off-Broadway stage productions, television show and Hollywood movie sets, and our warehouse in NJ has been filmed for reality TV. Our combined advertising efforts achieve more than 250 thousand views on average annually. We take great pride in our success in the industry and our careful, thorough treatment of all the items we handle for both the buyer and the consignor.
We hope we can be of service to you!
It'll be sunny (we hope)! Temp 3192.
