What happens to the things you don’t sell? I went to an estate sale and there was a refrigerator marked $2000.00 the last day it was $1000.00. It didn’t sell. Is there some place to go to buy after sale merchandise?

    Matt McNeil says:

    Dear Janice:

    Very, very little is left after a typical sale; however, there are (naturally) some items left.

    Items of appreciable value (rarely unsold) may be brokered through an out-of-state auction, else revert to our client.

    For common and miscellaneous household goods? We use four different default charities AFTER our client has walked through and taken whatever it is that he or she may want. (We can do this in person, or via Skype.)

    Here are the default charities we use: Edmond Association for Residential Centers (formerly Edmond Association for Retarded Citizens), Friends of the Oklahoma City Library (books & other media), Other Options (a hospice to whom we donate medical equipment), and The Sewing Guild (notions, thread, and any unsold fabric).

    Sometimes, our client chooses a different charity or charities, else no charity at all — it’s all up to the client.

    I hope my answers have been helpful to you.

    Best regards,
    Matt McNeil, ISA CAPP

I do not like how PhptoBucket displays pics. I think it is slow and prefer to view the pics I’m a grid so I can move thru them faster. Perhaps it is that I don’t understand how it all works but I usually will not attend a sale I cannot see pictures of. Hope you understand that all your customers are not advanced computer users. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give feedback

    Dear Gale:

    I’m sorry that you’re not pleased with PhotoBucket.

    We’re currently looking into other remote server options.

Jeanne Scott says:

I went to Villa Theresa in the 60″s can’t wait to go Saturday morning.

    Matt McNeil says:

    So happy to hear this, Jeanne!

    I’m a bit of a crusty old heathen, granted, but the Carmelite sisters have done SOOOOO much to make this a better world. They deserve every good thing in the world.

    I wish I could have been able to do the sale myself, per the sisters’ initial request, but I’m booked into January, and the good sisters really needed to have the real estate (a MASSIVE chunk of historic, Midtown Oklahoma City!) on the market before the holidays of 2014.

    Thank you so much for being a valued patron, Jeanne — we’ll see you in Nichols Hills next Friday!

    Fond regards,
    Matt
