WE HAVE MOVING HELP IF YOU NEED IT.
****The proportional to scale standing male lions of white Italian marble were $35,000. We have now reduced them to $20,000 OBO. Come by and get them for less than that and let them guard and embellish your home*****
We also have the two Grecian statues that were $15,000. They are reduced to $7500 OBO for the pair.
We have crating and the moving men to get them to you, so come on by and snatch them up.
This is truly one of five of our largest projects. Three months ago, a moving van lines company contacted me asking me if I could help sell a classy 5500 sq. ft. La Jolla home. They felt that the household was so high end that an auction would not realize a tenth of its value. I concurred through seeing pictures on photo bucket.
Kristen & I spent all day Tuesday in San Diego & all day Wednesday unloading in Los Angeles. We have a sale that you will really enjoy. This home is displayed and organized in a tailor-made, 20 room brown w/white trim office building that is on the corner of Riverside Dr. & Laurel Canyon Blvd. with lots of parking in rear.

Please note there is something for everyone here….all prices ranges and we bargain all five days.
But again, I am humbled by how well it fits and how scary it looked when we first unloaded. After the storage fees are satisfied, the owner will not lose it all, but regain many items that looked like would be lost to him forever. It is an entire household packed in a hurry and stored for 3 ½ yrs. The kitchen had to be massive.
