About Heirloom Appraisals and Sales Services, LLC
PREFACE: If ever there was a time for an estate sale to thrive it is NOW. With the economy in it's current state consumers are looking for the most reasonable price without sacrificing quality. For example, if you need a new kitchenaid item it could be costly to hit big retail stores. However, a perfectly good item of the same quality can be fetched for a much lower price at an estate sale.
SIDE NOTE: Buying at estate sales will keep perfectly good items of use out of landfills.
