Coronavirus is Not for Sale at Catherine’s Estates

Given the heightened nature of the Coronavirus, we are assessing estate sale procedures to decide how best to protect our customers and our dedicated staff.As much as possible, the focus at Catherine’s Estate sales will continue to be “business as usual”, with added measures to minimize this serious health risk.  Estate sales will be conducted as normal, but we will limit entry to no more than 25 persons at one time.  Although not banned, instead of hugs and handshakes we encourage social distancing, elbow bumps, and even the traditional Vulcan greeting of “live long and prosper.” Hand sanitizers will be available at the door and in each room.  We will work to separate the POS checkout station to relieve the congestion we can have there, and will regularly wipe down the credit card and cash station.  Continue Reading

Review of Recent Home Appraisal & Consultation

To all of you out there who are considering an appraisal of your valuables, I am writing to give Catherine’s Estates & Appraisals a two thumbs up!!

As the matriarch in my family, I have acquired many pieces of furniture that have been in my family for three to four generations.  I wanted to get a “fair market value” appraisal on these pieces in order to inform family members of their worth.  Catherine came to my home and provided me with several hours of her undivided attention and produced a comprehensive document that has undoubtedly helped me to sleep better at night!!  She is a personable, professional lady who obviously takes pride in her work and demonstrates a real interest in the antiquities and in the family history that surrounds each piece.  Her advice, professional opinions and direction were worth every penny she charged.  Thank you so much Catherine, and best wishes for continued success.  Tucson is fortunate to have you!

Jessica’s Unauthorized Testimonial

glassJessica made her announcement, toasted the guests in the drawing room, then threw her crystal glass into the fireplace. The light of the blazing flames reflected on the stunned faces the assembled; who were unsure whether to be more shocked by her announcement or by her reckless treatment of family heirlooms. They did not know Jessica’s secret. She purchased her Crystal at Catherine’s Estates Sale, where the unique and the exotic are so abundant that eccentricity can become an everyday event. At last.
