Before the Sale

What You Do

  1. Keep what you’d like

    During our initial meeting please tell us any items you’d like to keep. If they cannot be moved prior to the sale we can arrange to have them placed in a separate area during the sale.

  2. Stop! Don’t throw it out.

    Repetition for emphasis. Rule number one of estate sales is to throw nothing away. Many odd things sell at estate sales.

  3. Reserve pricing

    We can understand that some items are special. While you may set a reserve price, we don’t encourage it because setting a minimum price on an item will make it less likely to move. We just want to make you aware.

What We Do

  1. The Set up

    Lott’s Treasures and its employees will stage everything for you.  We stage items in cabinets and closets, in plain view, for more selling more which equals better sales for you. If needed, we bring in extra tables and display surfaces. That’s right, we take care of that too.

  2. Item Pricing

    Remember that your treasures are our treasures and we research and price everything with that in mind. When it comes to art and jewelry we consult with an appraiser to make sure of maximum returns.

  3. “Whoa! That’s too big!”

    Don’t worry. Those larger items like cars, motorcycles, or recreational vehicles will be posted and advertised accordingly.

  4. “Estate Sale Today!!!”

    We want to reach as many people as possible and want them to come to your sale. We will advertise your sale using all appropriate avenues. If your HOA or community has specific rules on parking, please let us know so that we can work with you on those arrangements.

  5. We protect you

    Because we want to protect you and all of your treasures we will not release any residential information until the day prior to the sale.
