This sale is at a METAIRIE location - LOCAL PICK UP ONLY - Read Pickup Dates below.
Please read all auction descriptions and view all photos - we disclose any damage/issues and give measurements on pretty much everything. If you have a question, the time to ask it is BEFORE you bid...'cause after you're the high bidder, it's yours.
We CANNOT move or load heavy furniture for you. There are some big pieces in this sale and this is a TWO STORY HOUSE. If you buy that sort of thing, you must be prepared to move/load it yourself. We are not kidding.
Cash, major credit cards, debit cards accepted upon pickup.
Only bid what you can afford to pay.Unfortunately, due to some people who have refused to honor their bids (they are now blocked from our sales), we require all bidders to have a credit/debit card number on file in order to bid on our items. Your card will NOT be automatically charged at the end of the auction, and you don't have to use it to pay - however, those that refuse to pick up or communicate with us after they have won an auction WILL have their purchases charged to their cards.An auction bid is a legal contract, and we expect you to honor your obligation.We share the names and email addresses of ALL non-paying bidders with other local estate sale companies. We do not charge a buyer's premium. You still have the option to pay cash for your items.
NOTE: Cash payment preferred. Credit/debit card purchases are welcome - however, we charge a 4% convenience charge for all credit card purchases. All payment is collected at pick-up unless you prefer to go ahead and charge your purchases to the card number you have on file - if you want to pay cash, wait and pay at pickup.
THREE Pick up Days for this sale are as follows - Wednesday, October 20 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Thursday, October 21 9:00 - 1:00 p.m., and Saturday, October 23 from 8:00 a.m. until Noon. Last pickup time is 30 minutes before we close. We have to stagger the time slots as we do not want too many people on the property at one time. Alas - the mask mandate is BACK and we are obliged to enforce it. We will wear a mask, and you must wear one to pickup/shop. We don't like it, either.
All winning bidders will be contacted when the auction is complete (Sunday night or Monday after the sale) and given the address and time for pickup. Appointments are REQUIRED and you don't get the address until you make your appointment. Only high bidders gain entry to the home - this sale is not open to the general public. All invoices are sent out at the same time after the auction ends - appointments are set strictly on a first some, first served basis.

Silent Partners Estate Sales is proud to be handling the estate of Mary Grace Curry, Ph.D. A historian who specialized in the West Bank, Dr. Curry was very involved with many Jefferson Parish organizations and a member of many clubs/societies.
Ms. Curry never married and was childless. Her two-story Metairie home is full of interesting things. She was the poster child for "never threw anything away." An only child herself, she also had items from her parent's estate. Her mother was a direct descendent of the EHRET family of Gretna. LA. Lucky bidders will have PLENTY to shop in the house/garage when they pick up.
We have lost two weeks of prep-time due to Hurricane Ida and we are still pulling out the treasures. We anticipate around 300 lots in this sale. Please keep checking back for more listings.
