People attending a Complete Estate Sales Northwest event often remark how organized things seem. We always appreciate hearing this because the houses we handle often don't come that way to start!
We tell our clients not to throw away anything until we see it, since things which look insignificant or time consuming—boxes of old paper ephemera, grandma's old kitchen stuff, a box of tangled junk jewelry—often prove to hold finds which thrill our customers and benefit our estate sale clients.
In one of our Tacoma estate sales, an old rug in the attic was unrolled to expose a $1200 set of sterling flatware. In another recent sale, a 14k gold cross and chain appeared amongst the usual $4 costume pieces.
Our next Seattle estate sale features a big dig—a Victorian house full of decades worth of collections. We can see the paintings and some interesting clocks, but the home is loaded with boxes of who-knows-what. Once we find it, we leave it out for our customers to see...so keep following us.
