Everything you wanted to know about attending a Tag Sale but were afraid to ask!

  1. Get there early for the best selection of merchandise. The early bird gets the best selection, if you get there late in the day you may get a discount, but there’s less choice also.
  2. We limit the number of customers inside the house at once, so be patient, your turn will come
  3. Our staff is there to monitor the flow of buyers inside the house and purchases. Estate sales allow the public into our client’s private quarters and take place in many rooms. We have staff on hand to watch over sales and adequately insure the safety and security of our clients’ property.
  4. Our prices reflect the market value and we don’t haggle much on price the first day. You can always ask and you may be able to submit offers on certain pieces, but you’ll get the best bargains during the final hours on the last day of the estate sale. However, your choices will be limited.
  5. Please ask us about payment terms before committing to a large purchase. We do take credit cards, cash and checks, but some items may have certain payment terms.
  6. Ask about our pick-up policies. At most sales, you can pay and then return for large pieces such as furniture within a day or two, but not always. Each sale is different.
  7. Bring a friend if you have your eye on a large piece. We don’t help load your purchases, but can recommend movers for large items that may be difficult to transport.
  8. Many sales include garden statuary, potted plants, and appliances so you can always ask if those items are up for sale.
  9. If a room or door is off limits, we will mark it with crime-scene type tape or a sign. Otherwise feel free to wander through the house, including garages, basements, closets and outdoors.
  10. Items are final sale and not returnable so check the condition of the piece before you purchase. Merchandise is sold as is and you can’t return it later if you find a flaw.
  11. Bring a measuring tape, color swatches, and dimensions if you are looking for a certain item. If you don’t see what you want here, ask us. We have tag sales booked months in advance and may know of an upcoming sale that may have just what you’re looking for.
