FAQs:

1) I am responsible for emptying the contents of the home of a family member. 
What should I do first?

Tag Sales Treasures understands how overwhelming it can be for a homeowner, trusted family member or estate executor to undertake this task. The first thing you should do is identify the items that are not for sale. Do not "clean out" the house, as many of the items you think are "junk" may have some resale value.

2) Are there any upfront fees or hidden costs associated with Tag Sale Treasures?

No, there are no upfront fees or costs when you call for the initial consultation. We will gladly meet with you to walk through the premises at no charge and advise you of your best options for a sale. Our fee is paid from the proceeds of the sale.

3) What about "antiques" and other valuables? Does Tag Sale Treasures sell those too?

Nancy's expertise, knowledge and experience with the current market will determine a fair market price for those items, one that an antique dealer or collector will gladly pay and one that will get you the most money for those items.

4) Couldn't I just do this myself?

Running a Tag Sale is an overwhelming and often very emotional task. We have found that it can be upsetting for homeowners or family members to experience the emotional roller-coaster that a Tag Sale or Estate Sale can bring. As for the help of friends, if they do not know this business, how will they know how to price things, how to set up for the sale, how to monitor traffic - or even draw a crowd to the sale? All of these things comes from years of work and experience.

5) Should I call in an antique dealer to sell the "better" items to?

No. Calling in an "antique dealer" puts you at a disadvantage. An antique dealer will give you the price he or she wants to pay for that item, not necessarily what it is worth. Many of these dealers are regular customers at our sales and would gladly pay the price I set for that item.

6) What if my items do not sell?

For one reason or another there will always be some unsold items. There are several options for items that do not sell. The homeowner/executor can keep the items, donate them to favorite charities or give them away. I can also arrange for the better things to be sent to a consignment store.
