We are one week into our Athen’s sale. For a while we thought it was going to be an in-person, regular sale, and we were so excited. Alas, with the increase in Covid cases we have once again had to punt. This time we are doing what we’re calling a hybrid sale. We have put many items online at EstateSales. There are pictures, descriptions and prices. Take a look! We have some beautiful items!

Private Appointments

We also decided to schedule private one hour shopping appointments for up to 3 people at a time. We are masked and are requiring people to wear masks. The house is big enough to allow us to socially distance. Debbie, Nell and I are all vaccinated. We feel safe, or as safe as we can be in these times.

Last week when I talked about how the three of us split up jobs and responsibilities, I did not talk about online sales. I had hoped that we would not be doing any more:( During online sales every single item we put online has to have an inventory number, a description, a photo and a price. All three of us work hard to get those items put online.

When you shop online and text your order, it goes to Nell (and sometimes Debbie who sends it to Nell). Nell checks the items you want to buy against a list of sold items and then sends the items and prices to me along with your email and phone number. I set you up in our Square system and invoice you via email. When you pay, Debbie contacts you and sets up an appointment for a porch pick-up. So now you can put names and faces with what is happening with your online orders.

This has worked well for the most part. With setting up in person appointments, there have been a few little glitches that we’ve had to work out but we’re getting there. And heaven knows it is SO good to see our people again. If you are one of our customers who arranged a private shopping experience, be sure to let us know how you liked it. It doesn’t look like things will be getting back to normal anytime soon, so we really want to find the best solution for our clients, our customers and us.

Monday, August 23 at 1:30 p.m. Who wants to go?!! We will pull a name from customers who have bought from us during this sale and announce a winner on social media Saturday, August 21 at noon. Buy something and get your name in the pot!

Have a good weekend everybody. Stay safe. Be kind to each other. Call Debbie to schedule your personal appointment to come shop! 205-238-1656.
