The Corona Virus in Orange County
We’ve all been dealing with the Corona virus and being locked down in our homes for over six weeks now. There is light at the end of the tunnel but no one thought it would go on this long and affect so many people so deeply. We are all so proud the way Californians have been coming together to help those with special needs, and extending extra courtesies for others. We are happy that California’s statistics are low unlike other states on the east coast that are struggling so. Thank you Californian’s for being so diligent and considerate for others. We have our fingers crossed that all our local business including the treasured Neiman Marcus in Fashion Island make it through this troubled time.
As many point of sale retail business continue to be temporarily closed, California Estate Sales and Auction Company is open for business and assisting clients with all their estate sale, auction, consignment, and loan needs. We are following all the mandated protocols and have added a few of our own as well. We are able to assist our clients with phone consultations, receive images by text or email, provide estimates, schedule estate sales, and answer any questions people have.
Items that we can sell quickly on behalf of our clients are fine art, Gold, Silver, Rolex, diamond jewelry, and loose stones such as: Emeralds, Sapphires, Diamonds, and Tanzanites. During these unusual times we can also offer lending against these types of items if that is something that would be helpful. This way, clients do not have to out-right sell their items…they can buy them back at a later date that works for them.
We also find that with the mandatory ‘stay at home’ order in Orange County, people now have the time to re-organize, clean out, de-clutter, and update living spaces and those big Newport Beach closets! For example, many people appreciate the opportunity to recycle their designer handbags (or golf clubs) in favor of the newest models. Buy, enjoy, sell, and repeat, we always say. Bored with your Black Chanel bag…who isn’t? Opt for the new electric Blue version for a new exciting pop to your look. We always say a bright pop of Chanel color ‘takes off 10 years’. Vibrant colors are not just for people in their 20’s and you only life once. It’s no fun to play it safe with color.
The beauty of our consignment, private or public sale, and auction process is that we pick up your items, sell them on your behalf, all without anyone coming to your home. All you have to do is figure out what you are going to buy with your newly-found-funds.
Now is also a good time to sell that classic car, fine art collection, fine jewelry from 1990 that you know you are never going to wear again, or gifts from an X-spouse or X-mother-in-law. The price of gold closed at $1657.00 Friday so it is a great time to sell metals. Gold coins, gold jewelry, gold key rings, and yes we can even sell scrap gold for you. Same with Silver and sterling silver, coins, Tiffany silver, and bars.
We are setting up appointments for classic estate sales, and conducting a lot of business by phone and text. Let us know how we can best serve you. As we are located in Corona Del Mar we are easy to reach and central to anyone in Orange County, Los Angeles, or San Diego.
