A service provided by the members of Grace Church to help those in the Madison area needing to dispose of a household of quality goods.
Estate Sales are a major source of fund raising as well as an opportunity to meet and interact with fellow parishioners. Estate Sales Coordinator is Susan Kies.
Members of Grace Episcopal Church originated estate sales in Madison more than 50 years ago. Their first sale was for a church member who needed to liquidate her estate and wanted to do so in a tasteful and elegant manner. To this day, Grace Sales are noted for their interesting and diverse items, always presented in a lovely and inviting setting.
Today, Grace Sales come about not only in estate situations, but in any transition situation which necessitates the sale of personal property, including downsizing, moving and other lifestyle changes. We also accept items for future sales if we feel they will add interest and variety.
We usually ask for at least three weeks preparation time to ensure that your sale will be as successful as possible. During this time, our volunteers price and display your items attractively through your home. Special items are thoroughly researched so that they are properly identified and appropriately priced. Better jewelry is placed under glass and other valuables are placed where they can be closely supervised by sales volunteers. We promote your sales through newspaper advertising, preview photos and information on our website, mailing lists to our regular customers, and signage at strategic traffic spots on the days of the sale. Every aspect of your sale will be carefully organized and executed professionally.
Grace's share of the sale revenues is used to support a variety of community and church ministries.
If you have questions, would like more information or would like to arrange a no-obligation consultation, please contact our Estate Sale Coordinator, Susan Kies, by calling the church office at 255-5147.
