10 Year Anniversary at Store Warehouse

2 Women & A Store –

10 years ago, Renee Poole, a local and successful estate liquidator opened up a 12,000 sq ft estate liquidation warehouse with her daughter, Jessica Poole in the old industrial part of down town – adjacent to the Arts District. We felt good about down town and felt the excitement that was happening at that time. A two-story massive endeavor, Not Just Antiques Mart, slowly filled up with wonderful estates and consignments and remains the only such vintage store in Las Vegas. Renee laughs at how big 12,000 sq ft looked in an empty old warehouse when she first opened the doors – and how she is now clamoring for more space to put the precious items people bring in. Jessica describes the store as vintage –modern and wishes even more younger people would come in to see the unique items up for sale. “This ain’t your Gramma’s antique store!” They sell known brands for much less than department stores – items such as Waterford, Lladro, Lenox, Fenton and more . There is furniture dating from the early 1800’s through the mid-century era – to repurposed, one of a kind painted items that is so popular today. Every inch of the Mart is filled with special collections in themed rooms to help make shopping easy and more fun.

They have become well known locally for the “go to” to help people determine if their items are trash or treasure! People come with dozens of bins crammed with their grammas’ stuff – and even truck loads full – to get the gals to determine if it is worth anything. The women sift through it and keep the valuables to put on the sales floor. People come into the store to have their items valued and sold. It is interesting to see what someone thinks has value and to hear the stories that are attached to items that have been passed down – most of them, usually being untrue and embellished. On the flip side-the item that someone is ready to discard thinking it has no value and turns out to be valuable is always a hoot! The clients feel good knowing we have not thrown away something that has value and would rather “leave it to the experts” You will find their back area is usually cluttered with bins and boxes of items we have to go through.

They made it through the recession where many other stores in Vegas closed. Project Neon (the new freeway expansion) has acquired almost all her neighbors and they will be one of the only businesses remaining on the historic Western Avenue. Forever expanding, they began holding auctions last winter and expect to start them up again in February. “It’s a little scary to think what all the construction may bring but we are taking it one day at a time” Renee states “ and right now we are thrilled to celebrate 10 years and are going to celebrate with huge sale events!”

This one of a kind estate liquidation warehouse is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 AM – 5:30 PM and is located at 1422 Western Avenue, 89102 – (near Oakey). For Info call (702) 384-4922 or visit www.NotJustAntiquesMart.com

How Do You Choose?

I have been doing estate liquidation sales for over 25 years.    The most frequently asked question I get is “how do I know someone is not going to steal from me?’ and the only answer I have is that sadly, you do not know – so be very careful about examining their credentials.  If they are bad mouthing another company – that is usually not a reason to hire them-why would you believe them?  You might investigate what they have told you – but I personally, when hiring someone for anything  – do not like it when one company degrades another.  I think the company should talk about why they should be hired – not why you shouldn’t hire another. 

 I have lots of stories about other companies but I was not there – I was not the client – I don’t know if any of the stories are true or exaggerated. 

What I can tell you about my company is that :

  • I have been doing estate liquidations in Las Vegas longer than most local companies.
  • I have a license that required a police criminal background check – something that most other estate liquidators do not have.
  •  I have a 12,000 sq ft estate liquidation warehouse where I have sold items for thousands of clients and have had this location since 2004.
  • I have done TV and Radio interviews
  • I get the sale set up, items sold & empty the house in 7 days!
  • We do not need access to your house for weeks.
  • We work with realtors, attorneys and executors and have impeccible references
  • I am a licensed appraiser in Las Vegas and am a proud member of AOA

Visiting Not Just Antiques is like taking a step back in time.

Estate liquidator Renee Poole and her daughter Jessica have filled every inch of the business, 1422 Western Ave., with bygone and collectible merchandise. There are a myriad of items — issues of Life magazine, old Japanese dolls, jewelry, Noritake china, antique furniture, Hummel figurines and Fenton Art Glass.

“We’re a pretty well-kept secret because we’re not like your other antique malls,” Renee Poole said. “They rent to dealers; they have spaces — aisles of spaces — of different people. We really are one serious store with amazing collections of people’s items.”

The warehouse is set up like a home, with Oriental rugs on the floor, hallways lined with paintings and furniture displayed as if in a showroom. To help keep things straight in the owners’ mental maps of where items are located, the building’s rooms are themed.

Toys and dolls are in one room, collectible figurines in another. There’s the kitchen room featuring items that were once considered the height of culinary chic, such as a cupboard with a disappearing flour bin. There’s a blue room, a pink room and a yellow room, where items of like color hold court. Curiously, none of those rooms is painted the corresponding color.

Tastes are changing, Poole said. Today’s young people who buy antique furniture will paint it for a shabby chic appearance. Kitschy mid-century Atomic Age items are now a craze, she said.

January marked the business’ 10th anniversary. In that time, plenty of people have brought in bins of their late grandmothers’ belongings.

Many times, Poole said, people are misguided about the value of their items.

“We’ve had people come in with the Declaration of Independence that they really believed was the real thing,” she said.

Value is not always obvious. Poole told of a women who brought in a trinket box, embellished and in top condition, for which the owner expected a couple of thousand dollars. Instead, it was another item she had — a lighting catalogue for lights and lamps for old railroad cars — that proved to be more valuable.

The trinket box brought about $200 but the catalog fetched $1,200.

“She thought she was going to get $10 for it,” Poole said. “Those are the fun moments.”

Estate liquidations make up a large part of the business. The two women are off-site at houses two to four times a month, sometimes with a team of up to 10 people. They price and catalog items for auction or put them on eBay.

Enrico Vita has been a frequent patron after stumbling upon the store soon after it opened. He has bought jewelry and sports memorabilia there.

“They have a lot of quality stuff,” he said, “and they’re both so knowledgeable. They know what they’re talking about.”

While the mother-daughter duo usually don’t see items worthy of the “Antiques Roadshow,” the highest value they’ve put on any item is $25,000; it was for artwork.

“We’re not just antiques. We also have cool vintage stuff,” Jessica Poole said. “And we have stuff like department stores carry, like Waterford (crystal), for a fraction of the cost. … It’s thrifting on a higher scale.”
