Buyers typically come to our estate sales prepared and have reviewed the items that will be offered for sale in our description and many images. If there are rare collectibles being offered like icon designer clothing, high profile fine art, or designer vintage jewelry there will be a buzz and serious interested parties. It is essential that your estate sale team be seasoned at recognizing your items that have become valuable over time. For instance not all estate firms would realize that a simple vintage Pierre Cardin skirt would be valued at $2000 and that a Pablo Picasso plate could fetch a return in the $8000 range. For these reasons alone it’s crucial that people with many years experience be selected to manage estate sales. If you have a vintage office chair it might be more valuable than you think. Charles Pollack chairs now created by Knoll are selling new for over $2000 so there is a market for previously used office furniture. Long story short, there is a market for everything and values change over time. Hire a team with experience and a track record of success.
