Estate Sale Finds – Know What You Are Looking At – French Tole Planter

photo 2-22photo 1-22On estate sales Friday, we thought we would share one of our estate sale finds from years ago that we collect.

This is a signed French tole planter. The feet and support are brass. One side of the piece has horses pulling a chariot and the other side has a staff swirled in ribbons holding trumpets with botanicals.

The base metal is strictly a gold tone planter an the painting is done in dark browns and black.

A most unusual piece of tole.

It’s estate sale Friday – happy shopping.

Estate Sales Friday – Ready, Set, Go – Happy Halloween!

Estate Sale signOnce again the weekend begins for thousands of estate sale companies across the country. Let’s examine what most of them have done this week.

We will assume they have a sale starting today. If that is the case they have probably spent the week sorting, cleaning, and staging your personal property. They have priced (and when necessary researched) the bulk of your items for sale. Depending on the size of your estate sale they may have worked 6, 8, 10, 12 or even more hours per day. Along with sorting, cleaning, polishing, pricing, and staging your sale estate liquidators have been busy making sure that all advertising, internet, social media, and possibly print media are in place. Most estate sale company owners do this themselves so that work is done either before they come to your property or after they leave.

The estate sale liquidators’ day doesn’t end though when they leave your property. The may return buyer inquiries either by phone or email, respond to perspective sellers, and in some cases, may be checking on the clean out or final pay out of the sale the previous weekend.

They also have to oversee their staff and make sure that all necessary signage and security is in place for your sale. Permits (if required) may have to be posted in a visible position and their method of crowd control must be in place (sign in sheet, number system etc.)

The estate liquidator has probably also dealt with any emotional or stress issues of the seller. You could say they wear many hats.

As the time approaches they make sure everyone is in place, price tags are visible, show cases secure, any rooms not to be involved are secured, cash needed to start is in place along with working credit card internet access is available.

Signs advising buyers of any regulations pertaining to the sale or property must also be visibly posted.

If the sale starts at 9:00am the estate sale owner or manager will probably open the door at 8:59am to advise those waiting for entrance of any conditions property or sale wise that they need to be aware of.

9:00am IT BEGINS!

Estate Sales Friday – What You Can See And Learn

Estate Sale signEstate Sales News has received many comments on our part one interview with Judy Martin, ISA, CAPP. Our dialogue will continue with Judy on Monday where she takes us on a tour of the home in Morgan Park Chicago. It should be pointed out that this sale was in the process of staging, cleaning, and hadn’t been priced. It provides a good perspective about the work it takes to prepare for an estate sale.

When you walk into an estate sales today take the time to look around at how it’s been staged, whether the items have been cleaned, and if the electronics have been tested. Remember that the items sold at estate sales are usually sold as is and most estate sale companies have a no return no refund policy.

There are thousands of estate sales across the country starting today. If you’re looking for items, this is a great source. If you are interested in having an estate sale and finding a liquidator go check out your local sales to see how they are handled and who impressed you.
