Should You Give Away or Donate Items?

Before deciding to donate or give items away, it is prudent to have Estate Sales by Jonesy evaluate items. Sometimes items you might believe have little or no value have more potential than you think.   Other times items which you might donate or give away, work as calling cards to bring customers into your sale

They’ll buy the toys, trinkets and dishes you think have no value; or think you are better off throwing away. Let Estate Sales by Jonesy help determine if an item should be donated or not.
