When my grandmother passed I was faced with the daunting task of handling her estate. This was my very first experience running an estate sale and I really had no idea how to do it. I have had several garage sales in the past so I thought it was just that but on a larger scale. I realized quickly how challenging this undertaking would be. Fortunately I had the help of my mother who flew to Los Angeles from her home on Maui. Between my mother and I and the help of a few volunteers, we made it through our three day sale. My experience working with antiques, furniture, and smalls in the motion picture business dressing and decorating sets helped tremendously. What I wasn't prepared for was the flood of emotions that I experienced while going through photos and family memorabilia. What my mother and I discovered was that seasoned pros who came to our sale were quite diligent in their pursuit of a bargain. That being said we sold some items for less than we should of... We were both emotionally and physically tired by day two, and the customers capitalized on that. We realized after the sale that if we had used a third party to handle the sale for us that our gross sales would have been probably 50% greater!
