Many of us have had garage sales to get rid of old junk, but what about circumstances where you’re forced to get rid items of significant value and in only a short amount of time? Be it a death of a family member, a sudden move or divorce, selling the items in your home can be a strenuous task. Thankfully one man and his business recently moved to Fishers can help alleviate this process.
Lee Parsons just settled with his wife and daughter here in Fishers and with him brought his family-owned business, Aether Estate sales. Naming the business after his daughter, Aether, Parsons saw an opportunity to utilize his background in antiquing to provide a service to those looking to sell the entire contents of their estate or property.
“A garage sale is stuff that people want to get rid of usually because its cruddy, but in an estate sale it’s stuff they need to get rid of for a reason,” Parsons explained. “They don’t want to get rid of it necessarily but they have to. So it’s much better quality stuff. It’s everything in the entire house from small to large, cheap to expensive.”
Growing up in environment interacting with antiques and collectibles, Parsons found a natural knack for understanding value in everyday items.
“People think, ‘How can I possibly know what everything in the entire world that’s manufactured is worth?’” Parsons said. “It’s kind of a giant headache to people, but growing up with antiques, collectibles and just second hand goods, as well, I’m much more in tune with what things are worth.”
Parsons business deals with estates from “very old houses to almost new construction,” and has even serviced famous homes such as the elaborate Dolphin mansion on Kessler Boulevard.
Items in the homes range from exotic cars to coffee cups, each being barcoded, marked and displayed throughout the estate turning it into almost a temporary store.
