“Simplifying the Process of Downsizing and Liquidating an Estate”

Dissolving or downsizing a loved one’s estate or even a few precious items can be a daunting and stressful experience; one, unfortunately, many of us find ourselves in the position to do – like it or not.

This 1-2 hour interactive session is specifically designed to help participants uncomplicate the process of downsizing and/or liquidating an estate. Useful tools, strategies and resources are provided to participants to help get started.

We will provide a prospective of and understanding for the emotional side of “letting go” of material objects/personal belongings while discussing the difference between a particular item’s “value” versus “what it is really worth.”

In addition, the advantages and disadvantages of a variety of methods for dissolving or downsizing an estate will be discussed.  Both online resources and professional contacts will be shared. Finally, the process by which we conduct partial or entire onsite estate liquidation sales will be presented.

Antique Portland Glass Presentation:  PORTLAND GLASS COMPANY 1863 – 1873  “A Brief History”

Kudos to Ellen Heath, Co-Owner of Little River Antiques & Estate Sales, for a GREAT lecture on antique Portland Glass delivered last night by invitation from the Cumberland Historical Society and held at the Cumberland Fire Station. It was a good turn out and attendees were provided with information and insights into the glass-making process, the history of Early American Pressed Glass with particular emphasis on the Portland, ME Glass Company. Attendees had an opportunity to examine samples of Early American Pressed Glass along with select pieces of Portland Glass from Ellen’s private collection. Special recognition also goes out to Kathy Kenny, Cumberland Historical Society Program Director, for coordinating the evening’s lecture. Well Done!
