Fenton, Dresden Figurines

Oh boy-we got in a small estate with many Dresden and Dresden style figurines. They are the gorgeous figurines - with the porcelain lace clothing that are ever so fragile. I will take some pictures and get them posted. Also great Fenton Glass pieces!

The nights have been chilly, but unlike last year the days are warming and lovely. Makes it a great Las Vegas Day! And a great day to think about going green. Do you realize that us antiquers and shabbers and crafters and artists are Recycling Divas!? We have the good sense to reuse and refurbish and re-love those items that have been discarded.

Autumn In Vegas

What a gorgeous day it is today-something we don't see often anymore through the years here in Vegas. Just a autumn day. The sun peeking through - warming everything in its cozy light. For many seasons we have gone from high temps to cold - so this is a real treat and I'm loving it!
Monday, we will begin getting another estate sale spruced up and ready for a weekend sale. Lots of interesting items including a indoor sauna! Portable and ready to be moved. I'll try to get some pics up when we are preparing it.

Lots of interesting stories - the other day a woman came in with a tea pot that was pretty busted up but was convinced it was worth many hundreds of dollars 'cuz she had seen it on the road show. Often, the items look similiar to what we have at home, and I must break the bad news that it is not that rarity shown on tv. Usually, though, I can bring good news and delight those who thought they had something valued at $10.00 - that it is worth just a bit more!

Well, I'm off to our store location (

To get followers

I'm still figuring out how this blog world works. I have got FB down, and I Twitter now and again - but still not sure how to get others to follow here. I guess I'll spend some time this week figuring out how - cuz other wise I'm just talking to myself and shoot, I can do that all day long with a blog! :)

Bringing some great antiques to the store on Tuesday from an estate sale we did over the weekend. Lots of great old Gone with the Wind Lamps - Furniture and more!

We have a 12,000 sq ft antique & collectible store - and it takes awhile to walk through it and see everything there is - but I have noticed that there are people who do what I would never do in any store that I visit. Too often, someone will just blop down on a chair; usually antique, to take a breather. Not a good idea! First of all, the chairs are old, and may not hold you. We've had several cane bottomed chairs give way and we're left with a big hole in a chair because of thoughtlessness. Its just not safe - especially when you're in a antique store. Its not a furniture store with floor displays.
And drinks. Come on folks. Would you go to your grandma's home and put your drink on her wood dresser with no coaster? She'd beat you, right?
Think about it!

How We Run Estate Sales

More often than not, the estate, this personal property – the property that is actually a lifetime of memories and cherished items - is donated or thrown away and money that could have been liquidated is lost!

More often than not, the estate, this personal property – the property that is actually a lifetime of memories and cherished items - is donated or thrown away and money that could have been liquidated is lost! All because no one knew what to do. The most cost efficient method to dispose of the personal property is through an estate liquidation sale. Each item is priced at a "fair" but "bargain" price, so that the majority of items will sell and bring in the best possible proceeds for the client. It is a cost efficient solution for attorneys, executors, and family members that can be executed quickly - efficiently - and fairly.

Estates, homes really, are filled with memories and things of old and new. Instead of feeling awful about disposing of someone else’s memories and treasures, try feeling happy that you are giving someone else chance for a new memory. Think of it as a beautiful gift to another person to enjoy and cherish and to fill their “estate” with. Don’t feel sad about giving-up that special item, feel good about making someone else happy with a “new” item. And even though that item may not new as in “mint-in-box”, it is still a “new” item to the new owner, and will be enjoyed and treasured all the same.

” If you don't know our service exists - we can't help you. It’s important that folks find out that there is such a service available. Heirs and Executors need to know the service is available before they can utilize it", states Renee Poole, owner of Call Renee! Estate Liquidation. “I would like to reach out and inform more people that services such as ours is available to them, at a most difficult time. Dealing with a death in the family, and the liquidation of personal property can spread emotional havoc! Under this enormous stress and time restraint it is a difficult task. Any heir or Executor of an estate can easily spend unnecessary time and money with the consuming dimensions involved.

In Las Vegas, Call Renee!, will hold an estate sale on the premises and sell everything, leaving only walls! The service has been highly successful in sales they have held. "The first thing I tell a client is not to throw anything out," Renee tells us, "Emotions interfere with the process and its best to let us decide what to sell. I have come to a appointment many times where a dumpster is filled with very saleable stuff – leaving only furniture which is what the client thought was saleable. We price the items, display them, and have a Weekend Sale, with a clean out the following Tuesday, leaving the house empty. All in 7 days! I sell everything from antiques to pots and pans - spices left in cabinets - toilet paper - clothes !

Photos are put on our website so that the estate sale buyers will know what to expect at each sale. We were the first estate liquidator in Las Vegas to begin using email announcements to let potential buyers and estate sale shoppers know what’s up for sale. Our clients get paid just days after the sale is completed. Because we have a real time antique mall in Las Vegas (Not Just Antiques Mart), better items that did not sell at the estate sale, go there on consignment while lesser-valued items get donated in the clients name. Our fee is usually a percentage of the sale Gross. Not Just Antiques Mart, by the way, is a great place to visit when you’re in Las Vegas. It’s a 12,000 sq ft antique & collectibles consignment mart – and because Call Renee! is there – the treasures are always changing…..quickly! We get all the estates that are too small for an on-site sale and have many who come by and check it out once a week…just in case that treasure is there. Not Just Antiques Mart is also a ebay drop off store and you can watch their auctions on ebay with the user name of notjustantiquesmart. At this location, Renee offers a Free Appraisal Day the first Sunday of each month, and Free Coin & Currency appraisals the 2nd Sunday of each month.

“It is an amazing experience each time, to come into a home filled with years of living and memories, and empty it in 7 days. I say that I'm an adoption agency passing on cherished items!
As an Estate liquidator, I am part psychologist, as it is hard for elders to give up their possessions, which are their memories – and it is hard for those who have lost loved ones to NOT feel guilty about "selling" the items. I come in and help people decide what to do next and help them get to the next step in their lives.
No matter where you live, there should be a reputable estate liquidator available to help you. Call your local Chamber of Commerce and see who’s available.
