Got ripped off but good at the Potting Shed. I went there to sell some jewelry. He told me it would just be melted down and the stones separated. Believing him, I took the measly amount he paid me. He assured me he was paying the most I'd get.

A week later, a friend who knew about me selling my jewelry told me to back there and look at the jewelry he was selling. Lo and behold, there was my jewelry, perfectly intact and priced in the hundreds.

They are thieves there.

Go to Craigslist, Utica/Rome/Oneida rant & raves and read about someone who hired them for an estate sale. They screwed him too.

He does not consider it wrong. He made an offer and you said yes. He trives on peoples lack of knowledge and will take advantage of them for his benifit. He will flag this post multiple times to have it removed. Keep spreding the word. Small town so many will learn.

Not an honest person. I would not sell anything to him. He will make the best deal for himself.
He preys

He use's peoples hard times to his benefit. Here you are trying to hold on another day and he see's it in your eyes and goes in for the kill. You will learn one day that a crook is a crook, no matter where they work from.

Go to alot of sales. We avoid Potting Shed, Queens Closet and one of the Sues. Totale is also a waste of time. Reutilize is hit and miss, depends on where he is in his quitting smoking attempts. Mr. Ding a Ling, forget him. High priced junk.

Valley Girls are usually ok, sometimes nutz. Juanita gets a good review although she doesn't do much anymore. Both negotiate as a standard practice, they're not stupid.

Drudgery is exactly that, it is drudgery to go to one of her sales. TLC has been quiet lately, sometimes he deals and sometimes he doesn't. Also, he is hit and miss on what has value and what doesn't. Still, I give him a shot if I have time.

What turns regular estate shoppers off? 1, high prices. 2, tell me how much it sold for on the internet and don't act surprised when I tell you to sell it on the internet then. 3, no negotiability especially day 1. I'm not coming back tomorrow, thanks anyway. I hit sales 1 time.

and 4, bring out that cash register and add sales tax. Goom-bye.Oh and if you charge sales tax, GIVE ME A RECEIPT with your name on it and the tax itemized (none of you do, we know where that "tax" money usually ends up wink wink)

That's estate sales 101 real quick like. Wonder how long this post will stay up before somebody cries to have it removed.
