Buying, selling and collecting is Total Estate Sale’s passion and lifeblood. Natashia grew up attending auctions, car shows and estate sales with her parents, Gary and Pat ( junkers in their own right!) Gary, a pilot and airplane mechanic, collects British sport and luxury cars while Pat collects everything, including a passion for Asian and blue and white porcelains.
Her maternal grandmother, Florence, was an antiques “picker” who collected and sold to dealers long before the term became fashionable. Florence’s appreciation for fine things including French crystal, figurines and perfume bottles trickled down to her granddaughter who received “adult” gifts and collections over the years. Today, Natashia continues the perfume bottle legacy and has a collection of over 300 antique and interesting pieces.
Lee, a native Charlestonian, also grew up surrounded by old and interesting items. Lee’s mother, Adel, collects porcelain, including cats and fine cups and saucers. His maternal grandparents, Alice and Louis, taught him an appreciation for old things. His grandfather, Louis, owned one of the first radio and TV repair businesses after the war. In later years, Louis and Lee’s uncle, David, collected and restored antique phonographs and pianos. His paternal grandmother, Sylvia, hailed from a well-to-do family that owned and sold fine antiques prior to the Great Depression.
Our evolution into the estate sale business began nearly ten years ago with buying and selling on Ebay. We attended every auction, estate sale, and second hand store possible, gathering a wealth of knowledge in the process . Our success as EBay Power Sellers evolved into selling antiques and collectibles in antique malls and via major shows in the Southeast. We have sold in Chamblee’s acclaimed Atlanta Antique Gallery, Charleston’s Hungryneck Antique Mall, and the former Junk and Jive Retro Mart.
Today, Total Estate Sales is 100% dedicated to conducting estate sales and looks forward to serving your needs!
