Above and Beyond Estate Sales was in Taunton Mass last weekend, if you weren't there you missed out on a lot of deals. 

                                             It was Stella's home. Her appliances were avocado green and were kept immaculate. She held onto this pack of Kleenex dinner napkins in avocado green until there was no time left for a party at this house. Even after she was too old to keep traveling she tucked away her Samsonite train case in it's original box for safe keeping. 

Stella kept a meticulous record of her thimble collection. Noting a detailed description of each thimble, the cost, and purchase date. See Note: Children of the Week Thimbles. Take note: she had collected them all. 

You might not think it from the avocado green appliances and massive collection of thimbles that Stella was one hot chick! 
(pun intended - this picture is of her neighbor's chicken coop)

At about 2:45 on the last day of a sale I have held out enough! I've just got to find out what kind of a woman Stella really was. 

Time to play dress up! 

Feather accented nightie!

Stella tried to host her own downsizing sale. People spent days at her house picking apart her things and offering her dirt cheep prices for her life long collection. Someone recommended Above and Beyond Estate Sales to her and she was relieved to pass on her home and it's contents to a trusted company. She had had her scares. Just after she moved out thieves broke into her home and removed all her copper pipes, a growing trend with scrap metal prices at an all time high. We were bundled up while we organized and displayed Stella's things yet our butts were cold while we popped a squat in the yard!

So hey! Massholes! Click on the image below to find out more about

Check out the Facebook page too! 

Sale after sale I find myself getting emotional over the things someone will leave behind. The worst is finding family photos with no family left to enjoy them or maybe even worse a wedding dress that has no new generation waiting for it to be their heirloom. That's when I realize that that's why estate sale companies exist.  That's why I take the time to try to get to know those folks who had it in their right mind to keep all this stuff but never had the mind to deal with it. So, Massholes, I welcome you to join us at our upcoming sale in Sharon, Ma this weekend. Check out pictures and find the address here. There we will again sort through the lost and hopefully some of it will become your found. I'll leave you with this....

Who said old ladies have no sense of humor!
