Frequently Asked Questions
We have been asked a lot of questions over the years so we pulled together a list of the most common ones. If you don't find your answer here, give us a call at 802.238.9574.
Can I list my yard sale with you?
Call us first! You could have some real treasures. The market fluctuates all the time and what was once not worth much could now be a hot seller.
We can usually sell your items for much more than you could get at a yard sale. As an added bonus, we do all the clean-up and take all unsold items off your hands.
How do you market my sale?
If you are selling individual pieces, we first notify our private collectors to see if they are interested in any of your items.
If we are coordinating your sale, we will design all print and electronic ads to send to our mailing list which contains over 1,200 names throughout Vermont and New England. Depending on how much lead time we are given, we start generating interest a month or so prior to the sale. Then a week before the actual sale, we blanket social media with email blasts leading up to the sale.
How do I get started?
Call us for a free valuation. We can either handle your estate sale or find buyers for certain pieces of your collection.
What are my items worth?
The market fluctuates constantly so there are many factors that work together to determine the value of your items. We will provide you with an estimate of what we think you can make on your individual item (or your estate sale)
ES&C always has a great selection of vintage and antique items at reasonable prices. The estate sales they host are the best ones organized I have ever attended, with nearly everything pre-tagged and priced.
ES&C recently provided estate sale services to our family to liquidate our mother’s personal belongings, collectibles and furnishings. My sisters and I found him to be the perfect mix of professional guidance, service and personal interest in our family’s situation.
