EstateSalesNews.com shares this weeks estate sales news, information and tips.
On Sunday, August, 20th The Orange County Register in California published an article “The 7 Things You Need To Know About Selling Everything In Your House”. This article featured Simone Kelly from Grasons and your editor Carol Madden of EstateSalesNews.com. This article went national through Google Alerts.
An estate sale company was conducting an estate sale and selling a gas grill. The estate sale company hadn’t cleaned it and when a couple went to steal it they were surprised by a massive number of bees nesting inside the grill attacking them.
A “real estate” firm from Seal Beach California wrote internet multi-page article “How to Choose An Estate Sale Company”. EstateSalesNews.com offers a link at the top left of our Front Page to assist you. The article appears to have been written with assistance from two of the three major estate sale advertising listing sites as they were mentioned and linked in the ad. Realtors now giving advice on estate sale business without experience. There is no mention of estate liquidation experience from the real estate company.
Collecting sales tax at estate sales is necessary unless the state the sale is being conducted in exempts estate sales from sales tax. For example Florida and California collect sales tax, New Jersey does not.
Two large estate sales will take place next week. One in Tampa, Florida is a 4 day estate sale with 20 shipping containers filled with multiple collections. The other estate sale will be 3 days and includes an entire village collected by one gentleman in Onamia, Minnesota. EstateSalesNews.com will feature pictures and information from both estate sales early next week.
20 shipping containers, cars (vintage and used), jewelry, coins at one estate sale being conducted by Full House Liquidation in Tampa, Florida starting September 1st.
I spoke with the owner of Full House Liquidation, Danny Triplett about this upcoming Tampa estate sale.
The sale is from two brothers who were hoarders. They even used twenty 40ft. shipping containers to store in.
This estate sale includes six cars including a vintage Corvair, Kharman Gia, and VW van. There are two Suzuki motorcycles. The sale includes 100’s of brand new diecast cars, six or seven late 1800 trunks. Lone Star Boy Scout magazines, crates of brand new mens clothing with tags still attached, jewelry, coins and they are still sorting through this enormous amount of items.
This estate sale is so large the preparation is taking four weeks with staff working long hours.
The estate sale will take place for 4 days starting September 1.
EstateSalesNews.com will report on this estate sale again before it begins.
Preventing theft at estate sales is important as more people attend the sale.
Estate liquidators are hiring off duty policemen for security and safety for their estate sales.
Estate sale companies can use this security to ensure orderly entrance into the estate sale as well as monitor those exiting. The off duty police officer may ask to see your receipt. He or she may also ask to look at the contents of your bags or boxes.
Estate sale staff are monitoring the personal property entrusted into their care. If staff see someone trying to steal or change a price tag, they will report this to the owner of the estate sale company and the security person.
Many estate sale companies that have caught thieves have taken to posting their photos on Facebook to warn others and hopefully prevent further theft attempts. They hope the embarrassment of their photo will succeed when viewed by the general public.
Estate sale companies can prosecute anyone caught stealing. Many use video cameras to monitor their sales.
Estate liquidators are now limiting coats and in many cases preventing pocket books from being brought into the estate sale. In Florida it is not uncommon to see yard signs that clearly say no large bags or purses.
On this estate sale Friday Estate Sales News stops to remember Nice, France.
We proceed with business, but we also keep in mind that our freedoms and those of all those affected killed, wounded and left behind by this horrific act should be in our thoughts today.
God Bless America, France and all who treasure freedom. EstateSalesNews.com stands with you!
Happy 4th of July from Estate Sales News. From our home to yours celebrating our freedom and independence. God Bless The USA.

Here at Estate Sales News we are celebrating Flag Day today. It is important to hoist old glory and celebrate and embrace the freedoms she stands for on this day proclaimed to celebrate our flag.
If you are shopping at estate sales be sure to look for antique and vintage flags. Today we show a 48 star flag before Alaska and Hawaii were admitted as states.
The 13 colonies adopted the flag of the United States (which has evolved over the past two centuries) on June 14, 1777. Although it would take President Woodrow Wilson to issue a proclamation in 1916 as June 14 as Flag day.
The United States Army also celebrates its’ birthday on Flag Day.
We honor Flag Day and hope you will too.
