Introducing our "Mini" Estate Sale concept

So you want to have an estate sale.

But you don't have a sufficient number of items to make up a typical weekend estate sale, or you want to remain in charge of pricing and the sale? 

We have an answer for you.


Our "Mini" estate sale program lets you remain totally in charge of your own sale, and help staff it with your own trusted friends and family members.  You also have the final say as to the prices of your items in the sale.  We supply the marketing expertise, sales counter management & equipment, and you supply added manpower to provide security during your sale:  Here is a partial list of what you can expect from us:

  • Pricing tags,
  • Suggested prices comparable to similar items in other estate sales,
  • Assistance in staging your items for sale,
  • Sales personnel (two individuals per sale; more available with a larger base cost),
  • Credit card processing equipment (we absorb the processing charges),
  • Yard signs,
  • Sales & Display Tables,
  • Pricing Tags, Boxes and Packaging Materials,
  • Online Advertising through EstateSales.net,
  • 1-2 Another retail customer email & in-store promotion announcement. 

We furnish the ideas on how to best stage your sale, along with someone to help you price your items, and to manage the sales desk during your sale.  Our onsite management assistance, including the the time we are involved in pricing of your items, is limited to 15 hours prior to the actual sale without an additional charge.  We highly recommend your estate sale be for only one or two days, generally during the week, not competing with other sales.  That way it is over and done with quickly!

Our base service fee is $250 for a 1-day sale, or $500 for a 2-day sale.  We also receive 35% of the income generated to compensate us for the personnel working the sale, advertising costs.  This base cost includes:  Up to 15 hours pricing, staging and preparing for your mini estate sale, and 2 staff members during the actual sale. 

We do not require a minimum gross amount of sales.


The best part...at no extra base charge, all unsold items from your "Mini" estate sale(excludes food or other perishables and clothing), are then continued to be sold in an online auction through Estate Sales-Bid, our wholly owned online auction service.  This gives you a way to continue your downsizing with money flowing in after your "Mini" estate sale ends.

Call Larry Dean at 913-291-2981 or 913-909-3749 (for cell & text messages) for more details and pricing.  You will be amazed as to how much you will save, and how quickly you can downsize using our "Mini" estate sale concept!!!
