Combined La Plata Estate 2016

When: February 12th-14th, 2016

Time: 8am-3pm Friday & Saturday 8am-12pm on Sunday

Where: 6575 Ellenwood Drive La Plata, MD 20646

PARKING NOTICE & OVERNIGHTERS: There will not be any “camping out” allowed at this estate due to the parking restrictions. You all can arrive in the early morning but that is all that will be allowed due to the safety of late night drivers. This house is on a main road which offers very little off road parking. Unfortunately, there will be no parking in the driveway. However, there will be parking on the main road but you will  have to park on the side of the road the house is on parking in the direction of traffic only. Please do not block driveways and mailboxes. You will not be able to park on both sides of the road because there will need to be passage for other cars. We will have an officer there at 6am to make sure everyone is parking correctly and to keep order of the traffic for safety reasons. 

The good news: We have done this before and it really does go by quickly and smoothly. Also, although we do have jewelry it is mostly confined to one table so the entire room will not be limited to the amount of people. Just the table which means there will not be another line once you enter the home.

Most of our estate sales contain areas and content not suitable for children. Our sales can be crowded and contain a lot of glass items and stair cases. Children are welcomed, but you are responsible for any damages. We can not allow strollers or buggies inside because they block the flow of traffic through the homes.
