-Our tag sales are cash only!

-All sales are final! That means no refunds! Everything sold as-is! Check items before purchasing.

_ Please do not call about prices or location of items. Emails are acceptable.

-All prices are firm until the second day of a two day sale, and in the afternoon on a one day sale. We may not reduce all items 50% off right away on the second day of a sale.

-We provide a bid box where you can place written bids on items. On two day sales we will call you on Saturday night or Sunday morning to notify you if you are the high bidder. We expect you to purchase the item if you are the high bidder! You will be given the first hour of the last day of the sale to pay for the item. You may pick up the item then, or later in the day before we close. 

-We don't pre-sale!  You are assured to have first pick of items in the estate if you are there the first morning of the sale. We may offer to sell to everyone, a large item such as a piano, pool table, etc. before the sale date.

-We give out line numbers when we arrive the day of the sale. Usually that is 45 minutes to 1 hour before the sale. We will also limit the number of people at times who can enter to prevent overcrowding regardless of weather conditions. 

-We expect you to purchase the item if you pull a price tag, or carry around an item at the beginning of the sale. We prefer that you place the item at the pay station, (or give it to another worker to hold for you) and tell the clerk that you want the item. They will keep it for you until you are ready to leave. 

-Our sales are advertised on,,, on other web sites, and sometimes in neighborhood newspapers. We usually have sale information with pictures on this web site a week before the sale.
