The Holy Days season is upon us and we have another opportunity to remember how blessed we are to celebrate the love of God. The gift of Himself to all mankind gives us the reason to continue living and to help others live on. We at Sharon Yost Estate Sales thank you for the best year in our 17 year history.

Thank you for your attendance and your patronage. For the last sale this year, we are presenting to you one of the most important homes we have ever produced. This estate is filled with one family’s possessions and it is stunning. It is really amazing and I assure you that I cannot list it all on this postcard.

With 3 rooms empty, the remaining 15 rooms & guest house of this 11,000 sq. ft. home is sure to thrill your treasure hunt leanings. Holiday shopping is at its best here and well-timed for those special gifts to buy for your friends and family.

As a postscript to notification of this estate sale…

We started with an empty house. The entire home had been staged with newer items by the realtor to help sell the home. Just this Monday, November 28th and Tuesday, November 29th, our valiant crew of movers went into the 2000 square foot garage to move all the furniture upstairs to the 1st and 2nd floors! Wednesday and Thursday we moved decorative accessories, paintings, bronzes and bronze clocks, Christmas items, etc., from the five treasure rooms attached to the garage. Today, we continue to move items upstairs, display and hang pictures and paintings. Tonight you will see some pictures to show you the magnificence of this estate. Next week, we will have final pictures, hopefully by Wednesday night.
