Before you read this please keep in mind a few things...We want you to come, have fun, get great deals on good stuff you can add to your collection, or re-sell.. and will do our best to make sure you get everything you came for. There are some people out there that may not know how these sales work, have never been before, or just don't care. Either way we need to put these guidelines in place to protect our customers and their property, our business and employees, and you the customer. Please follow these guidelines and realize that most people are really cool and fun to be around and this applies to a select few. These guidelines are not negotiable and we thank you in advance to following what is simply generally accepted protocol and behavior for such an event. We do our part and DO NOT allow anyone to buy before the sale so everyone has a fair shot at what is offered. There are no asterisks like some companies have next to his statement and anything else we do! This sale has some great items and will be a great time!
We rarely have to make people wait once the doors open at 8am unless there are more than safely can enter the home at one time (25 people in this one). We do not issue numbers, and allow people to wait one hour before the sale begins. Piles made must be purchased immediately when done shopping. (no specific time limit but pls be reasonable). DO NOT COME TO THE HOUSE EARLIER THAN 7AM on sale day! Unlike many estate companies, we will help you load your items into your vehicle, but are not liable for any damage when doing so, and will only load an item once paid for . ANY BAG OR PURSE BROUGHT INTO THE HOME IS SUBJECT TO SEARCH BEFORE LEAVING. Sorry too many thieves out there lately. We prefer you bring a re usable bag or box and large purses or backpacks will not be allowed so please leave them in the vehicle. The property owner or estate company are not liable for any injury or accident and inform you that you enter this property at your own risk. (it's a nice place so don't be nervous, our lawyers make us write this) . Cash only for any purchase under $100. ... paypal or debit OK $100 to $500, NO checks will be accepted regardless of where you live or if you have a business sorry. Nothing will be held unless paid and must be picked up by end of sale. No dealers or others will be allowed in early, please do not ask. PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP AT THE HOME UNTIL THE DAY OF THE SALE one hour before start time.
NO FOOD OR DRINKS other than bottled water will be allowed inside the home. We cannot sell items after the sale... if you see something you like, make an offer while you are at the sale. There are NO PUBLIC BATHROOMS PLEASE DO NOT ASK!! ( there is a service station with facilities less than 2 miles away so stop before you get there) Feel free to make piles of items during the mad dash times, but only if you are definitely purchasing them. If you start holding items and putting them back when it comes time to pay we will simply ask you to leave without any items. This keeps everything fair and removes the need to pay for each items as you go and is much more convenient for everyone. Please conduct yourself like an adult; no running or pushing and do not take items from other peoples piles or hold items that you are not purchasing. (basically kindergarten playground rules)We are happy to make arrangements for delivery of your large item (for a fee of course).. We love kids but please No children under allowed unless under direct control of the parents. There are items that are breakable and items that can cause injury. Sorry about this but no exceptions.. A strict you break it you buy it policy is in effect so please be mindful of your bags or purse while walking around and handle items gently. Stealing from anyone is not nice, but from an estate is even worse (they benefit mostly old folks who really need the money from the items and home sale), Sooooo... Video surveillance will be used and anyone caught stealing or attempting to steal will be dealt with accordingly(we catch at least one person per sale, and have secret shoppers watching you, so don't be the one we take out back). Questions regarding holding items, or item pricing cannot and will not be answered, but feel free to ask about an item( this is common practice and makes it fair for everyone. If you see something you like, come to the sale and we will do our best to have you leave with it) We try to make each sale fun and easy going so you can get great deals on all our items and have some room left to make a profit if you wish to re-sell. Please keep this in mind regarding conduct, negotiation, and interactions with other shoppers at the sale, and help us keep the environment friendly and professional. If you do not like the price of an item feel free to MAKE AN OFFER. We will do our best to accommodate each and every customer and hope to see you at the sale. Thank you
