‘Tis the Season for Holiday Decor & More!

IMG_5633 (1)Holiday season is here and it’s time to deck the halls! We’ve got some fun ideas for getting into the spirit of the season, even if you’re short on time and budget.

  1. Set a festive table! Get out the Christmas china, festive glassware and crystal. It’s time to enjoy using your “special” dinnerware…why not even for simple family meals? ‘Tis the season! We frequently feature holiday-themed dinnerware at our estate sales, so if you’re lacking that special Santa mug, check our weekly listings…we might have just what you’re looking for! WIJT6994
  2. Indulge in nostalgia and special memories. Everyone has a few vintage holiday ornaments or decorative items that bring back the past…share the story behind the vintage Santa with a new generation. LIMI3505
  3. Get out those fun seasonal collections and holiday displays! It’s a lot of work to set up the Christmas village or to decorate the tree, but isn’t it worth it? It’s the time of year for over-the-top decorating…enjoy every minute! We love this village set up in an old china cabinet…don’t the lights make it special?

    4. Wear a festive outfit…it doesn’t have to be a Christmas sweater! (Although we think those are pretty fun!) If you haven’t been to the “Vintage Boutique” at Michael Taylor at home, you can find this retro ladies suit and lots more fun holiday garb at great prices…what are you waiting for?IMG_5565

And if you’re looking for food and friends, we’ve got a special holiday event coming up on Dec. 11 from 1-5 p.m. at Michael Taylor At Home…it’s our holiday open house, and we’d love to see you there! We’ve got prize drawings, refreshments and special deals…bring a friend and come say hello. IMG_5547

It’s a busy month, but we hope to see you at our sales and our open house…our customers are very special to us and we truly appreciate your business!

My best this holiday season,

Michael Taylor & Co.

Save time & money…shop our off-site sales!

IMG_5451We know that estate sale shopping is fun AND a huge source of bargains…but it’s also a lot of driving, gas money and time. With this busy holiday season approaching, we’re offering one-stop shopping by hosting off-site estate sales in our huge 9,000 sq foot retail space, Michael Taylor At Home.

This week alone, we have three fabulous sales under one roof, plus our usual selection of fine furniture, original artwork and prints, rugs, sculpture, fine and costume jewelry, china, vintage clothing, silver, home decor and antiques.

Here’s Your Sign! Funny signs you definitely won’t see at our sales…

At Michael Taylor Estate and Moving Sales, we pride ourselves in our best-in-business practices, including our printed signage.

Ready...set...go!
Keeping it classy!

As a professional operation, we hold ourselves to the highest standards but we aren’t above having a laugh with (not at, we respect everyone!) the do-it-yourself-ers who take a lighter approach. Hey, we know better than anyone that putting on a sale is a hard job, and we see the funny side, too. Here are a few signs that we definitely won’t be using, but made us laugh anyway:

It’ll be huuuuuge! Well, we can’t get political, but it looks like they’ve got some hair-raising deals at this sale…

Hey, it’s Lionel Ritchie…he actually lived here in Nashville when he was recording his country album and we know he’s a fan of local culture, so maybe he’d appreciate a sign like this? Funny stuff, but I think we’ll stick to our standard signs.

Simpsons fans will appreciate this one. We’ve all had that “take all my money” moment when we see something great at a sale!

We couldn’t agree more with the sentiment behind this one. You deserve it! And we’ve got 5 great sales this week just FULL of amazing stuff…check the listings on our home page for locations, dates and photos. Of special note is our Red Carpet Sale in Manchester, TN–just a short hour’s drive from the Metro area. That sale has a really unusual assortment of chinoiserie, clocks, antiques, glassware, patio furniture and much more.

We can’t wait to see you there….just follow the (informative and professionally printed) signs!

My best,

Michael Taylor and Company
