The contract stated provider would keep 35% or $3500 of sale, whichever was more. In addition, salaries for other employees and expenses were charged to the seller. That should have come out of the 35% instead of all that going into the provider's pocket. Nowhere was it mentioned that in order to make money, the sale would have to bring in ten thousand dollars, not verbally and not in the poorly written contract.

This resulted in the providers selling approximately $4100 of my mother's belongings (that she had to sell to move) and the company keeping every cent of it. You read that right, my mother got NOTHING from this sale. There is something inherently wrong with this type of business. There was no way the proceeds from this sale could have totaled ten thousand dollars and the owner should have recognized that from the get go. The owner then blamed that on the family for taking the items given to us by our mom. Thank the Lord we took what we did; otherwise that would have been in the owners pocket. Had we not accepted anything from our mother, the sale still would not have brought in ten thousand dollars.

Our family feels very cheated by this company. There is something morally wrong with this business. They took advantage of an elderly woman. Shame on you.

Our elderly mother moved into a retirement home and contracted with
to run an estate sale for items she could not take with her. The sale grossed 4800 dollars. My mother received ZERO, not one dollar. Several conversations with a co-owner ended the same way. After they deducted their fee and expenses there was nothing left for the owner of all the stuff they sold. Something is fundamentally wrong with this business model. If you intend to have an estate sale, be sure to ask questions about how they conduct business. They made money on my mother and she essentially "gave" her things away so they could. This was a devastating experience and one that has left the family feeling robbed.

left a message and he called back a couple hours later. We arranged for the furniture to be picked up. The movers showed up on time.

estimated the cost and required half the amount before starting the work. There has been a long delay before the work started, but once it started, it went at an appropriate pace. We went to the shop to finalize the choice of color for the finish. The color turned out as expected. The finished work was delivered and installed carefully. This furniture had never looked this good before. There was no unexpexted extra cost. For top quality work at a fair price I recommend

The owner was in an accident so it took several months to get my maple bench back. The quality of work was great. I thought the price was a bit high for work required. I'm happy with my antique bench.

came to our home to provide a detailed estimate to include expected start and finish date.

was very apologetic about the wait as he is always booked weeks, if not months, in advance. It was worth the wait. It took less than a week between the time he picked up the furniture and delivered it. We're very pleased with the results.

responded quickly and came to the house to see what was to be done. We started with a queen bed side rail that had been torn apart in a recent move. It needed to be repaired and matched up or we would have had to get a new bed. I was doubtful it would ever look the same but
San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
was confident it could be done. We got to talking and dragged out a gate leg table that had suffered an accident causing one of the drop sides to split in two. Again Mr.
San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
assured us that could be made undetectable. Next was a vintage fruit wood plate frame in need of repair and
San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
(to a new color no less). I was nervous about handing it over as it had been made by my late father. Then a small mahogany chest that showed every minute of a hard life on its finish. It was going to need repair and
San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
. Finally we own a real flea
San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
one of a kind; a hand carved wooden head about two feet tall that had powder beetle damage and a broken nose. All this was trucked away to his shop and a date set for when all the work would be done. Right on schedule we got a phone call to set up a delivery date and on that day another call to make sure the time would be good for us. All my busted and bedraggled furniture pieces were delivered and I was astonished when I saw them. Each piece was like show room new. My broken bed side rail looks perfect and I still cannot find the spot where it was repaired. I have to admit, I am a little disappointed that I won't need to buy a new bed, but this one is like new. It's as if it was never gouged by the movers. The gate leg table is amazing and I'll give you a dollar if you can find the repair, it's invisible. Dad's plate frame was not this attractive even 50 years ago when it was new. My small mahogany chest has a new life as a jewelry box. The big head never looked so good as it does today and it's been treated so we won't have to worry about any critters in the house.

I fell victim to a "bait and switch" offer by this company and have lost thousands of dollars I can never recoup because they have apparently vanished into thin air. First they promised they would get my whole antique coin collection graded for me. (I had done business with them before with no problems so I trusted them.) However, once they got their hands on my 300+
San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
they changed the terms of the deal and said it was an "exchange offer" wherein they would exchange my ungraded

for graded

of equal value. Then they started claiming that some of the silver

had been "cleaned" destroying their numismatic value down to mere

had been cleaned. I don't believe them for a minute, but they had my

San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
either. They did send me some

in exchange, but they drug their feet and sent me one graded coin about every six months totaling four
San Antonio Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
. With the price of gold and silver soaring, I was losing money every month they delayed completing the "exchange". When I called last week to prod them that the exchange was incomplete, all their phone numbers were disconnected! I sent them an email but they did not respond. Apparently they have conveniently gone out of business and left me with no where to turn. If they are still in business, I think a person should carefully consider my story before taking the huge risk of trusting them.

We have been going there for about 8 years. Lots of dealers. Lots of furniture, but some artwork, jewelry, glassware, etc. Good parking, good hours.

They really have a good selection. Everything here is priced to sell and they are always willing to bargain a little too. I feel like I have stepped back in time when I walk in the doors. They are just fantastic.

good.....the wood chair got twisted in a move and would not sit level on the floor. It needed to be taken appart and reglued. They tighten it up and put some plastic sliders under two of the legs...not how I would have prefered to have it done, but now it sits level.
