We conduct Estate Sales with meticulous attention to every detail.
The process is more than selling things to us- our work is done with honor and respect for the legacy someone has acquired throughout their lifetime.
We are unapologetic perfectionists who take the time to appreciate and discover value that others may miss.
Chuck has an inborn gift for finding treasures, both humble and significant, where others wouldn't think to look.
Judith has the gift of perceiving details of a person's life and the possessions they leave behind, which adds dimension to their enduring story.
Frequently, Chuck helps with estates with our long-time friend and associate, Frank Brandow, of Big Valley Estate Sales.
We helped Frank at the estate of Tom Duffy, well known Fresno antique collector and dealer of long ago.
Judith designed elegant signs to highlight special treasures and lend a respectful tone to this significant estate sale.
Sometimes estates yield delightful surprises, as did this one.
Judith meticulously examined the contents of boxes in a garage and discovered a treasure trove of paper realia associated with the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gull Wing.

We regularly go to estate sales and auctions to acquire unique items for our inventory or personal collection.
Here you see Chuck at the moment he successfully bid on our Mickey Mouse Rocking Horse crafted in 1936 by the Mengel Furniture Company.
You can tell which bidders are seriously experienced; note the arms crossed or hands safely clasped.
Remember- body language can be EXPENSIVE if you aren't careful at an auction!
