With all the work we have preparing complete estate sales in the northwest, people are often surprised to see us also participating in big antique shows like the Christine Palmer Expos in Portland and Puyallup, and Spokane's Custer's Antique & Collectors Sales and The Farm Chicks Antiques Show.
Why do we do antique shows? Things that we find in our complete estate sales include antiques, vintage, retro and collectible items. While we leave those antiques and collectibles for our shoppers to buy at our estate sales in the Seattle-Tacoma area, we take consignment merchandise to sell at antique shows so we can keep current with what people are collecting now and with what things sell for at a retail antique show.
This helps our estate sale clients, shoppers and consignment sellers in several ways. For a client of Complete Estate Sales Northwest, our knowledge of the antique market in Washington and Oregon means we can spot and appraise vintage items they might miss on their own. For our shoppers, it means that we can correctly identify antique and vintage items and price them at our complete estate sales at a fair discount to their retail values. For our consignment sellers, our presence at the antique shows offers an avenue to sell their antiques and collections in a retail setting, even if they can't have a complete estate sale at their home.
