|SCHEDULE OF SALES:
DATES: Saturday, December 6, & Sunday, December 7.
TIME: 9 a.m.--3 p.m.
Numbers Given Out: 7 a.m. until 8:45 a.m.
We give out numbers so shoppers can come into the sale in order. The first person at the sale
gets number one, and so forth.
You do not have to have a number to get in. If you do not have a number, you come in after
the people who have numbers. Two numbers per person, please.
We ask that shoppers not bring in bags, as we provide baskets to hold the things you are
purchasing. If you do bring your bag to the sale, we just ask that you show the contents on
the way out of the sale. Several of our competitors have experienced thefts and we think
it's wise to be proactive. Thanks for understanding.

This is a very full house. Even though it is big and we are using the basement and attic, it will
take some time to see it all. Heck, we've been there 4 weeks and are still seeing things we have
not seen before. Space is tight, so we will limit the number of people who will be allowed in at
one time. We'll take as many as possible at once.
These people had great things which you will love seeing and, hopefully, purchasing.
Take Western Avenue. If coming from Albany, Colonial is a left at a light. We are the first house on the left.
Changes are coming to Estate Resolution. This is the last sale for Michael and Sherry. After 20 years owning and running the business,
Michael and Sherry Carnevale are moving to LaQuinta, California at the end of the year. They are
a bit tired and want to walk Sweetie in the sunshine. They have sold the business to a
great guy who has worked with the business for 5 years as the Program Director of the Treasure
Chest, Craig Hansen. Everyone who is working for Estate Resolution now will continue with
Craig, who will keep the business as it has been for 20 years. You will have the same great
sales and service, someone new will be running the show.
Craig comes to Estate Resolution with a wealth of knowledge. He grew up in southern Connecticut,
where he followed his parents' interests in antiques and collectibles. He spent a lot of time attending
auctions and estate sales. In the late 90's, Craig was an antiques dealer in Salem, MA. He has been in
this area 9 years and resides in historic downtown Troy. For 5 years, he has been program director of
the Treasure Chest, part of the Albany Damien Center.
Craig and his manager, Kathy Martin, will be at this sale. Come meet them as we transition
to new leadership.
Michael and Sherry will miss all of the great shoppers we have enjoyed over the years; many of you have
become friends. We plan to give lots of hugs at the last sale as well as to introduce the new owner.
Thank you for all of your support and friendship.
