At Fruitcocktail Collectibles, we care about the health and safety of our Greater Seattle community. We are committed to following local and federal public health guidelines and staying up to date with current recommendations on face masks, social distancing, sanitizing, and other health measures.

At this time, we are providing multiple estate sale and appraisal options to help our customers stay safe. Here are some options you may be able to choose from, depending on current guidelines:

Virtual Appraisals

Fruitcocktail is now offering virtual appraisals for customers who do not want to meet in person. Depending on the items in question, we can often provide appraisal services over Facetime or Zoom to help you estimate the value of your art, antiques, heirlooms, and other valuables.

Online Estate Sales

Many of our customers have expressed discomfort with having people in their homes at this time. In line with this discomfort, we are now offering an online-only option for estate sales. We will take pictures of the items for sale and sell them online. For smaller items, we can either ship directly to buyers or have buyers pick up their purchases at our new loading area.

We have also found that online estate sales are a great option for people living in condos, gated communities, homes under construction, and other areas that can’t hold estate sales open to the public.

In-Person Options When Safe

Fruitcocktail is also doing in-person estate sales at this time, using all safety measures. We require masks, limit the number of people who can come into a home at a time, monitor lines, use hand sanitizer, and can wear gloves if the homeowner desires to make the process safer.

FAQ: What Items Are Selling During COVID?

People are still interested in estate sales during COVID-19! We are selling a lot of easy-to-ship and collectible items at this time. Many people are interested in purchasing things for their homes, such as art from listed and Northwest artists, jewelry, old toys, and silver. Vintage clothing is also extremely popular.

If you live in the Greater Seattle area and are interested in selling vintage items, collections, art, or other items, please schedule an appointment to stop by.
