New Services for a New Culture
Estate Sales & Auctions are becoming a thing of the past.
The Baby Boomers are now old and taking care of their parents in nursing homes! People are tired of collecting.
The 20 to 40 year olds want new, now , neat and disposable! Very little of the booming collectible culture is present.
Wonderful old antique furniture is being painted as we saw in the 50's and 60's.
Most people are trough out Grandma's china and crystal. No one likes it any longer! Dining room sets do not sell!
No one sits at a table and eats any longer. Sofas, chairs, dressers, even buffets won't sell. Everyone
want new! Some designs and designers are selling in different parts of each state or the country.
Some china and crystal does sell, but not for much. Antique glassware, Porcelains and
figures are cheaper than the Outlet stores! Old kitchen ware,even antique tools have taken a curve ball downward.
Forget about the "collectibles" Plates, cups, collectible toys that were all the rage,and any thing that was
in a "Series". Lithographs unsigned, are pretty. Signed might be a few bucks.
Art must be original and by a listed or an artist in demand. Coins, gold, jewelry fine and costume are good.
Old toys , some. Mint in box or forget it!
Of course the condition, where it is sold, the grading of coins, , etc. Etc. All will bring value or not.
Internet auction sites have leveraged the selling and buying markets.
Due to these rapid changes in just a few short predictable years, I am offering these new services.

Lynn O'Keefe handled our estate sale in Gainesville, Florida in 2005 and, using her expertise in sales,
assigning value, marketing and organization, she sold every last item we had for sale and netted us twice as
much as we had expected! I HIGHLY recommend her work and professionalism.

|"I contacted Lynn O'Keefe in Gainesville to conduct our estate sale in Cedar Key.
They were very professional, efficient, clean, and thorough.
The sale was highly successful and what didn't sell they removed from the house so that it was completely empty.
I found them to be very trustworthy and meticulous in their record keeping
and we received a itemized report and check through certified mail within a week.
I would give them my unconditional recommendation.
Can't begin to express how pleased we were with your whole operation.
Very professional and efficient. I was surprised at the amount.
Thanks so much for your kind help.
Great seeing you all - and many thanks to Penny for holding the Roseville Pinecone bookend for me. Truly, your sales are the best - and
your level customer service doesn't exist anywhere else!Great seeing you all - and many thanks to Penny for holding the Roseville
