  • Terms & Conditions

    ~~>>>ENTER THIS PREMISES AT YOUR OWN RISK.  PRINCIPAL ESTATE SALES NOR THE HOMEOWNER ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR INJURY, LOSS OR DAMAGES TO PROPERTY, VEHICLES OR PERSONS.<<<~~

    ***ENTRY: To prevent excess wear and tear and/or damage to the residence, a maximum of 20 people will be permitted inside at any given time. As people exit, the capacity will be kept at that amount, and usually waiting time is minimal. ENTRY NUMBERS:  A sign in list will be posted on the front door of the premises at 8AM! Directions will be printed on the list, and we expect you will behave in a fair and dignified manner with regard to the self regulating nature of this process. If you are not present when your name is called, you will be bumped to the back of the line.

    ***PAYMENT for items may be made via cash or credit card. An additional 3% convenience fee will be added to credit card purchases, and proper ID is required in addition to signing a statement regarding chargebacks.

    ***ALL SALES FINAL.  ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS.  WE DO NOT ISSUE REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES.

    ***BRING HELP TO LOAD ITEMS.  We do not offer moving services for large items.  We do, however, have a company we can refer you to - ask us for their card!  All items must be removed by 4pm Sunday, unless other arrangements are made PRIOR to purchase.

    ***BE RESPECTFUL, COURTEOUS, USE COMMON SENSE.  ANY VIOLATION WILL RESULT IN REMOVAL.  Principal Estate Sales, nor the homeowner, is not liable for any falls, injuries, and/or accidents incurred on premises.

    ***OFFER BOX:  Take note of our offer box, which will be stationed near the entrance/exit. You may leave an offer on any item.  PLEASE NOTE:  An offer is a legally binding contract. 

    ***HOLDING STATION:  If you start a pile, you are required to purchase EVERY item in it.  Your pile is ALL OR NOTHING.  It is unfair to other customers, and our clients, if you pull an item from the sale, only to put it back - we have then missed multiple opportunities to sell it.

    ***PARKING:  Please park legally and respectfully at all times. ROADSIDE PARKING ONLY, please do not park in driveway as that is reserved for people moving and picking up large items. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE GRASS, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Principal Estate Sales, nor the homeowner, is not liable for any tickets, fines, or accidents you may incur as a result of parking.

    ***CHILDREN must be DIRECTLY supervised at all times.  No exceptions.  The risk of them being hurt is too great.  Any unsupervised children and their guardian will be immediately escorted off premises.  This sale is also filled to the brim with collectible, breakable items that we normally try to stage in safe places out of the direct path of our shoppers.  We are unable to do that here, so this rule will be strictly enforced.  We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

    ***Admittance into our estate sales is at the sole discretion of the sale director, and may be revoked at any time, for any reason.

  • Payment Methods

    Cash, Credit Cards, Debit

Sale Description

Even when you see this sale first hand, it’s hard to believe.  The sheer quantity of items is something to behold, so much so that Matt said to me “I can’t wait to see the look on people’s faces when they see this”.  It’s true - we’re all looking forward to the reaction! It’s not just quantity, though. This stuff was loved...cared for by someone who truly appreciated it, and most of it is quality.  You can tell the owner was an educated romantic, of sorts. The jaw-dropping library suggests someone who constantly pushed the envelope of knowledge, and yet did not become jaded by our world as is so easy to do, but instead found the beauty in it, and sought to surround herself with that beauty in every way she could.  

Here’s the details:  Saturday, October 13:  9am - 4pm; Sunday, October 14:  10am - 4pm. SIGN IN LIST WILL BE POSTED AT 8AM SHARP ON SATURDAY.  The full address will update on all advertisements on Friday, October 12.  

This house truly has it all - antique furniture, crafts, TONS OF CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS, very nice bookshelves, a truly amazing seven (7) piece marble top bedroom suite featuring a King size canopy bed with a nice Sealy Posturepedic mattress, ten closets full of clothes, linens, coats, and everything in between, baskets of every shape and size out the wazoo, collectibles, figurines, enough flower arrangements and loose flowers to feed the entire North American population of hummingbirds (if they were real), nice leather sofa sets (yes, sets...multiples), table lamps and floor lamps of all different varieties, oil paintings, artwork and wall decor, an antique style claw foot Victorian themed desk with matching bench/stool, a Saginaw Furniture beautiful antique burled desk, multiple curio cabinets, Eastlake style accent chairs, carved Asian inspired tables, garden fountains, outdoor patio sets, outdoor concrete patio table with bench seating, concrete benches, concrete garden / yard decor, a second bedroom set (Jamestown Sterling), lots and lots of vintage kitchenware and flatware, wicker baskets, wicker furniture, nesting trunks, office desk, vintage office chair, column pedestals, bar stools, hanging mirrors, statues and busts, a whole lot of costume jewelry, oh and a 1997 CADILLAC DEVILLE 4 DOOR SEDAN - 4.6L V8, F DOHC 32V, UNDER 60,000 MILES, FRONT WHEEL DRIVE, TUXEDO EDITION (ask to see the Carfax)!  Just a bit about the library: there’s Romance, Espionage, Military, Horror, Thriller, Christian, Self-Help, Motivational, Nonfiction, Fantasy, and that’s just to name the ones that jump out at me.  While there are quite a few paperbacks in this ENORMOUS library, there is a massive collection of hardcover books, and more than 50% of those are 1st editions!

If you’re looking for lists of items or descriptions, they’re captioned under the photos.  

We do not reveal prices before the sale opening, we do not pre-sell, and we cannot hold any items.  The address for the sale will be updated on www.principalestatesales.com, all estate sale websites, our Facebook page, and in the craigslist ad on Friday morning.  Please address any questions/comments in person at the sale. If you are trying to contact us in regards to these items prior to the sale, we will try our best to get back to you, but our first priority is hosting a quality event (texting is recommended). Contacting us the day before the sale will be next to impossible, so if you have questions, please give us an extra day to get back to you.  Please see below for information regarding entrance numbers and sale procedures.

If you are in the market for an estate sale, please feel free to take advantage of our easy consultation scheduling at http://principal.as.me - our consultations are always free and involve zero pressure!  We’ll leave you with a packet of information and you can call us when you’re ready to commit.  Easy Peasy.
