Leslie will start handing out numbers at 12 Noon for admission starting at 1 PM. Initial entry is 50. Thereafter, we will allow more to come in as space permits - normally as two leave, two enter. If you do not respond when your number is called, you forfeit entry. But when you show up, you may obtain a new number.
We accept cash, checks, credit and debit cards. We do not accept Discover.
Please read our rules:
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 item without a price tag, and nobody fesses up to have chosen it, I will sell it to the one making the inquiry.
When you remove a tag from an item, you will be required to follow through on your purchase. 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 young children by your side. We don't allow children to run loose. We encourage you to take whiny kids outside so they do not disburb 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. So again, we play on a level playing field.
6) In many cases 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 our 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. We have conducted more sales per year during the past 12 years than any other liquidation company in Lubbock. Thanks for your referrals and for making us Number One year after year.
If you skipped the red print above, please read it. Especially the rules regarding the number system. Thank you! -Eddie & Staff
Another quality sale. When Sandy remarried and moved out, she left everything behind, plus added many items from her new husband's former home. So it's packed and offers duplicates of the great items on hand.

The separate work shop out back is brimming with tools, hardware, and a big group of sandblasting equipment, including a shop vac hook-up to a bead-blasting cabinet, hoses, pressure regulators, etc. This groups is sold as a group and we do not plan to separate it.
The garage is full, too, including a Craftsman tool chest, battery-operated lawn mower, and even fine art (she painted the interior walls in preparation for us to list the house to sell it, and we could only hang this stuff in the garage. Check out the D. R. Parker oil painting.) And much more - too much to mention.
We take cash, checks, and cards (except Discover).
