PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, we no longer allow large purses, handbags, backpacks, etc. We will also be limiting access to 30 persons at all times! There are steps and stairs throughout the property, please use caution as we are not responsible for accidents!

Masks are optional but we offer no guarantee against cooties.

We accept cash, credit and debit cards, and checks if we know you. We charge sales tax!

Please read our rule
1.) Bring your own help to load heavy items. We are unable to help.

2.) Larger items have removable price tags. Pull the tag and hand to any worker who will mark the item "SOLD." Please put your name and phone number on the sold tag. Please do not take a tag off and carry it around "while you decide." That may cost us a sale. And it may cost you a purchase. If a customer asks me about an items without a price tag and nobody fesses up to have chosen it, I will sell it to the one making the inquiry.

Further, please do not carry items around "while you decide." As you empty your carry bag to the cashier, you may decide against one item, but not several. You will be required to follow through on your purchase.

3.) Keep your children by your side. We don't allow children to run loose. We encourage you to take whiny kids outside so they do not disturb others.
4.) Prior to the sale, we are unable to accept phone calls and/or e-mails regarding price, size, etc. A team puts a sale together and I probably don't know the answer. That's what you come to the sale for.

5.) We are unable to let you claim items prior to the sale. We operate on a level playing field. Shoppers who have patiently stood in line expect to find the pictured items in the home. Our customers biggest complaints against other liquidators is waiting to get in, only to find an item gone. Those liquidators allow their "pets" in early. We don't. Your money is just as good as someone else's.

6.) We have a holding table, enabling you to go for more items. Please take only what is yours from this table. We have a basket of cloth shopping bags inside the door of every sale. We encourage you to take one and to carry your items around with you. People do steal from the holding table and we are unable to control it. If your item is precious to you, keep it with you.

7.) Please respect neighbors by not blocking their drive or mailbox. Use our driveway only for loading, as some of us must come and go during the sale.

8.) Ladies: You don't need purses the size of luggage. You hog limited space and bump into merchandise and into others. You block traffic. You raise suspicion.

Thank you for shopping with Access to the Past, specializing in finer estates at very realistic prices. Thank you for your referrals and for your loyalty.
