People attending a Tampa Bay Total Estate Sales 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 St. Petersburg estate sales, an old box in the back shed was unpacked to expose a scarce $450 Tootsietoy Buck Rogers play set. In another recent sale, several pieces of 14k gold jewelry appeared amongst the usual $4 costume pieces.
Our next estate sale is tentatively scheduled for this fall and features the lifetime collections of a 97-year-old woman. We can see the nice antique furniture and some interesting jewelry, 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.
