A new company is born...or is it a ministry?
Nell’s BFF from college days at Auburn recently moved to Decatur. For years Debbie has been fascinated by estate sales. Her husband’s career has taken them to many different cities and countries all over the world. Often when it was time to make a move, Debbie would sell the entire contents of her home (keeping her prized art collection, of course, and a few beloved pieces of furniture). She would move to a new city and furnish a new home primarily by shopping estate sales. A number of years ago, following a move to Georgia, Debbie met and teamed up with a man who owned an estate sales company. She had recently retired from teaching, so the timing was perfect. They joined forces and Debbie’s organizational and people skills ensured instant success in her new career.
Shortly after Debbie moved to Decatur, Nell and Dodie found out that a dear friend and her husband were downsizing and relocating from Decatur to Kentucky. Nell asked Debbie if she would consider doing an estate sale for them. Being the adventurous person that she is, Debbie agree to coordinate the sale with her friends’ help. It was an awesome week for everyone, and Debbie, Nell and Dodie quickly realized that in addition to having a lot of fun, they were performing a much-needed service for their friends. Through the week, they prepped and priced and researched. Amazingly they all had different strengths that complimented each other. It was a lot of hard work but when the sale was over, they felt such a sense of accomplishment. And their friends were very happy with the results.
Debbie, Nell and Dodie got together a few days later to have a celebration lunch. They talked about the sale and how well they had worked together. They talked about how much easier (and cheaper) their friends’ impending move would be without the extra stuff--furniture, rugs, etc., and how nice it had been to provide that service for them. They began talking about the possibility of starting an estate sale business. Then they reminded themselves that they were retired. “But we wouldn’t have to do it full time,” one of them said. “Yes, we could just do maybe one sale a month,” another continued. “Are we doing this?” Debbie asked. “Yes, we are,” Nell and Dodie replied. And so DN&D Estate Sales was born.
