Please note the BumblePuppy Store will be closed from Dec 23- Jan 1 for deep cleaning and the holidays.  We will reopen on Jan 2.  We MAY still be able to accommodate some prescheduled drop offs, deliveries and pickups during this time.  Please schedule these in advance.


Other news and announcements:

  1. We are looking for bulk buyers for clothing and books.  Purchase by the garbage bag for clothes and by the box for books.  These are not smelly/yucky items.  They are in good condition.
  2. We could use some boxes and bags.  If you have extra bags and boxes laying around and you can bring them to us, we would appreciate it.
  3. Check out our new website designed by B2Computing!  We've got a lot of information on there and we've reorganized it so its easier to find!  www.bumblepuppysales.com
  4. As always, if you refer an estate to us and we end up doing an onsite sale at the house, you will receive a $100 referral bonus!  We just need to know who referred the customer to us!
  5. Cleanouts!  Interested in getting a lot of merchandise for a bulk price?  We are looking for people to give us a quote on cleaning out estate sale leftovers from some of our estate sales.  If you are interested in being on our list, please contact us!

NEW STORE ITEMS:  Week of 11/13

We put out an estate from Green Bay this week.  The items were found in a house that has been abandoned for years.  Its another interesting mix including old photo albums, tools, artwork and pictures and more.  There were a few nice antique pieces of furniture included as well.  Our new comics are still out adn are on sale.  

We have a new vendor in the store in our end booth who is busy bringing in her wares.

We're working on getting some new jewelry priced and out as well. Store hours are Wed-Sat 9-6 and Sunday 12-6.  621 Westhill Blvd, next to Stevie B's.

Please note that the store will be open on Sunday at 10:00 instead of noon.  That's right!  Those quarter deals are ready to go two hours early!

Auction Info

We had our first auction on October 26th.  If you'd like to see the kind of set up and kind of auction we had you can check out our pictures from last week's auction here:     http://www.flickr.com/photos/bumblepuppysales/sets/72157636955627554/
Future auctions will be held on Thursday nights and will last until about 10:00pm.  We will have a variety of items at each auction including new items that no one has seen before, items that are not moving quickly enough in the store, left over items from the store and estate sale and more.  There is a nice mix.  We have not negotiated a venue yet, but will update this information when we have the details.  If you've never been to an auction before and are nervous about how one works, please show up ahead of time and we will walk you through the process.  Its not scary, we promise!  We've just started these auctions and would like to build a legacy, so we appreciate your feedback and interest in helping us perfect this new sales venue for us.
 
In addition to these live auctions, BumblePuppy is excited to announce that we will soon be offering online auctions as well.  We are currently having our online auction platform built and will soon offer additional auctions in which you can shop from the comfort of your own home.  We will have shipping and delivery options included in this new sales venue as well.  This exciting venture will allow us to diversify our sales abilities and further meet the needs of our clients.  We hope that you'll check these out as well once we get them established.
