He took an early retirement in the eighties and dived right into the world of computers…becoming a product manager with Data Desk International and a faculty member with the annual San Francisco Macworld Exposition. His Missus – Clara Vines was an equally dynamic individual! Clara spent the 1950s working the with State Department serving through the Middle East and Asia before marrying her lifetime partner and raising two sons. Clara loved the arts and being an artist at heart – her greatest love was working with her hands creating many wonderful pieces of pottery, sculpture, jewelry, textiles, and more!

Their property features a large garden area filled with plants and it must have been quite the retreat in the past!

What a year it has been here at EstateSalesNews.com Here is a partial look at the nearly 200 articles that have been published on our front page this year.
In January we reported about advertising including the use of Facebook and SEO (search engine optimization). We also covered winter sports and finding skis, skates, snowboards, and snow shoes at estate sales. We also talked about holding estate sales in the cold, snow, and ice. This December many areas of the country are still waiting for snow while others are almost snow bound.
February we covered several memorable estate sales including one selling a Ford Model A with video, and our article about How To Find Your Estate Sale Company. We featured a liquidation sale with antique and vintage pinball machines and we wrote about several websites where you can advertise your estate sale company with out cost for basic information plus some great throwbacks.
In march we announced through a video a new advertiser, EstateSale.com.

An enormous estate sale of an over collector in Chesterfield, MO starting on December 18th conducted by A New Beginnings Estate Sale. A that home has 1000’s of items, many of which were purchased within the last five years and still have the price tags on them begins. Over 300 throw pillows is just the beginning of what you will find at this hoarder sale.
Working with an over collector or as some call them a hoarder is challenging. If it isn’t someone who is deceased it will requires patience, emotional understanding, and some very basic physcology. Estate liquidators wear many hats for just this reason. Explaining how they will approach the enormous task and what has to be done is only the beginning of the estate liquidation process.
Estate sales with this type of volume require extra weeks and hours of work and many times extra staff. Many estate sale companies may increase their commission because of the volume of items, sorting, the extra staging, and pricing it requires, however, each company works differently.
