We are so excited about our next Estate Auction this coming Saturday., August 21 beginning at 10:00 am, preview at 8:30. The address is 102 Bounty Lane in Durham.
It is a pure estate, with treasures directly out of our client’s home, as well as that of close-knit family and church friends.
If “y’all” want to attend a traditional country-style auction, please plan to join us. There will be bar-b-que, biscuits and a bake sale by the Lowes Grove Baptist Church. We will be auctioning off Pecan, Coconut Pies and more as the day progresses. The setting is perfect, as is parking. An estate sale steeped in Southern Tradition! Bring a Chair, all of your friends and a truck, because the furniture is super! See you Saturday.

Also, remember we’re still collecting ghost stories or strange happenings that you may to share……Peace, Cindy
I am collecting ghost, unexplained stories about houses or possessions. Could be a story about something that you just can’t attribute to any rational reasoning. I have mine from past and present that I will be sharing as well. Wait until you hear the story about the Greensboro estate that we did a couple of years ago. It raised the hair on our arms! Or, there was the house where a gentleman was murdered that we couldn’t get photographs to come out in a particular area of the home and the ones that did had a huge shadow in them! And to this day, when the door opens in our gallery for no good reason, we simply say “Hi Ernie”. If any of you remember Ernie, you’ll know what I’m talking about. This had never happened until we began liquidating his estate. Come on and share. Let’s have some fun. Afterall, we auction folks deal with numerous OLD things!
Lots of excitement building…..
August 8 will be our next auction in the gallery. The gathering began this week and we have uncovered many nice fresh estate pieces of Majolica, Bavarian Porcelain, Vintage Textiles & Clothes, a FABULOUS Flame Grain Painted PA. Jelly Cupboard and SO much more.
We have also confirmed an upcoming on-site auction that will be held off of Highway 54 in Durham on August 21. Everybody say a little prayer for a break in the weather. This is a very nice estate of an individual whose favorite pastime was attending estate tag sales and auction over the last several decades. We are very excited about this one! Stay Tuned.
