Sue Obercon is one of our very best friends. I can’t even begin to imagine how long ago we met. She was the big raffle winner at our 200th estate sale, which feels like ages ago now! She got us some of our greatest clients, and even came to help clear the house out afterwards. A class act through and through, and always brings so much joy to our sales. Thank you Sue!

~Past Customers of the Week~


We’re so sad to announce the passing of Carlton Salisbury this week. Carlton was a long time shopper who became a dear friend over the years. As getting around became harder for him, he would often pull up a chair near checkout, where we had some wonderful conversations and got to know each other. He has vast knowledge in his area of expertise, and was always so pleasant and professional to deal with. While we only knew him for the last few of his 88 years, it was clear he lived a long and productive life. We miss you already Carlton. Rest In Peace.

Customer of the Week - VIP

The Empire family lost a very dear friend. Roxanne Woodward was the kindest, most courageous person, and she came to mean so much to us over the years. She loved animals, people, and life in general. Despite facing an incredible illness and endless pain, she never stopped smiling. In fact, she had it harder than most of us, yet she was always the light in the room. She and her husband Woody loved their life together and spent their time enjoying each other and those around them, traveling, and shopping estate sales, of course. Roxanne was a walking miracle and in the end, her illness never really won, because she wouldn’t let it. Her courage and optimism was breathtaking. The love she and Woody shared is an inspiration to all of us. Rest In Peace, Roxanne. You will always be with us.
