We do not allow guests to enter the estate with purses. For this, there are no exceptions (except for those purses that are very small ... similar to a wallet).
Bring your own boxes. If you plan on purchasing items that are heavy, bring help. Our staff may not be able to assist you.
If you plan on purchasing items that require a truck or a moving van, please make prior arrangements.
And something more:
We do not do pre-sales, nor do we provide prices prior to the sale.
We sell on a “First come, first serve” basis.
