Most calls and orders are acknowledged within 24 hours. I try to authenticate any item about which I have doubt so that more than one opinion of value has been considered in pricing.
About Us
Garage and estate sales start early in the week here in Atlanta, sometimes as early as Wednesday. I scan the online sites, the local newspaper, and other venues to map out my itinerary for "saling". When friends ask what I'm doing, I always say, "I'm going saling!" They must think I'm an avid sailor.

It is not unusual for me to go to 15 or 20 sales a day, and I've been doing it for so long, that sometimes I get called by estate sales managers here for a private preview--first choice. It's fun, it's exciting, it's actually thrilling to me. This enthusiasm usually pays off. I look through everything once and then go back for a second look to make sure I haven't missed something. The real treasures are not always easy to spot. Rarely do I go saling that the trip doesn't more than pay for the time and expense involved. I never go with any preconceived notion of what I am going to buy. Pay dirt comes in many different sizes and shapes.

I used to want to keep all the goodies but thankfully, I have cured myself of that and now I pass on these hand-picked treasures to my customers. When you buy something from my site, please know that there's usually a story attached which I am always happy to share with you if you are interested. Just ask!
