How WE RUN OUR estate sales
Our estate sales operate on a first-come, first-served basis, which means we do not have a sign up list. For crowd control, however, we begin handing out numbers about an hour before doors open, allowing a limited number of guests into the space at a time.
Your number will hold your place in line, which means that once you get your number, you can leave the venue and return once the doors open.
