Dear Lin and Rose
You are our superheroes!
Our "downsizing" sale was a huge success!
You vanquished "the evil villain of stuff," just like Iron Man or Captain America defeat their enemies.
You took control and managed that aspect of our move and made the whole process much less overwhelming.
We can't thank you enough for coming to the rescue!

I can't say enough good things about your handling of our tag sale the past two days. You, Rose, and "company" are a total delight to deal with. You're professional, knowledgeable, fair, and make what is potentially a challenging thing into something productive . You really helped us "clear out" our house for an upcoming move.
We would recommend you highly to anyone!

Rose and Lin,


Kathy and I want to thank you for the excellent estate sale you completed at my mother’s home.  We were impressed with your hard work and your knowledge of a bewildering number of different kinds of sale items.  Not only did the dollar amount we received from the estate sale exceed our expectations, we really appreciated the sensitivity and care you took with mom’s home and possessions.  If we ever hear of someone that needs to conduct an estate sale, we certainly will recommend the “Dusty Old Bags”.  Thanks again.


Ron and Kathy  



Dear Rose and Lin:
Thanks you for all of the hard work you did for my mother's estate sale. It is hard to lose your mother, especially when you were an only child, but you lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders by helping me properly relocate many of her things. Working with you both felt more like having family help me through this as you were always respectful of my mother's home and possessions and it was easy to feel both trusting and confident of your service. I highly recommend dusty old bags to anyone who needs help with dealing with an estate or has to sell their belongings due to moving. These ladies know their stuff and I'm sure you won't be disappointed....

Dear Rose and Lynn:
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
When my house was sold I took a deep breath, looked around and
then gave out a scream contemplating the thought of how I was
going to get rid of the clutter, antiques, and collections that my husband
and I accumulated over the 48 years  of living in the same house.
Downsizing is a very difficult task. The two of you abated my fears,
worked with me throughout the entire sale…and after as well.
If anyone would have told me that I would sell my house in October,
have It broom swept and clean and be in my new residence all set up
by the end of January, I would have told you to go and have your
head examined. But Yes, here we are relaxing and enjoying this new
phase of our lives.
Again, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Best regards,
Judith and Herman too!




Star in the spotlight


Dear Rose and Lin:

I just wanted to thank both you and your team for your help in clearing out my parents' home.  Since it wasn't for estate purposes, my father had just relocated states away, it was the house my brother and I grew up in and had been our home for about 35 years...so everyone can imagine the contents! 

There was simply no way that my father or I would be able to handle the clean out on our own.  So, I started looking and found you on the internet. 

I found many companies, but after reading your testimonials I knew you were the ones to call!  Everything was handled quickly, efficiently and it was effortless for me, which was wonderful.  You got back to me right away on questions and kept me informed during the sale.   I didn't even have to be there! And then, when it was over, you had the name of someone who could clear out what was left.  

Thank you again for all of your help.  I would (and have) recommended you to others. 






Dear Rose and Lin

We would like to take a moment to extend our deepest gratitude to two dear and “Dusty Old Bags”…..thank you both for a successful and effortless estate sale.  Your sense of humor and kind attitude was a welcome respite during a bittersweet time for our family. All of the details of our sale flowed like clockwork because of your diligence and organization.  Small details, such as answering email questions or scheduling meetings at the home, were handled promptly and with courtesy.  The house looked beautiful when it was staged for the sale. Your honesty and expertise contributed greatly to the success of our sale; we always felt that we were in good hands throughout the process.
We wish you and yours many years of happiness and success. May you always have lots of interesting dusty old bags to sort through!
Michael and Deborah


Dear Lin, Rose, and Staff,

Your team took the anxiety out of clearing out our mom’s house.  We knew for us to have a garage sale on our own would be very emotional. We were so excited to find out about your company on the internet. Your team handled everything skillfully from advertising, set up, and even dealing with the difficult customer.  And what a relief it was- all we had to do was show up at the end of the sale and collect the money.  Your team is awesome.

Thanks so much to Rose, Lin and their crew. 

You handled an overwhelming task in a professional and pleasant manner. We appreciate all your hard work and how responsive you were to our questions and concerns.  My mother-in-law had a vast quantity of possessions and, personally, I will never know how you managed to organize them all in the time you took.

Dear Rose, Lin, and family,

Thank you all for the wonderful job you did at my father's house.

I would definitely recommend your company to anyone. 
You  all were very professional and helped me so much.

Thank you all very much. Take care.


Dear Rose, Lin, and The Crew,

I would personally like to thank you for conducting such a fabulous sale!
Everybody was so knowledgeable, professional and respectful of my treasures.

I was particularly impressed with your set-up services and the fairness in pricing each item.

I wouldn't hesitate on recommending your services to anybody looking for professionals to host their tag sale.

Selling our home of 32 years and downsizing to a much smaller condo was a big job – but the part we
dreaded most from the beginning was getting rid of all the things we didn 't want to keep. We did not
have to worry! After choosing what we wanted to keep and letting our children go through everything,
we called the Dusty Old Bags – what a wonderful choice. From the first contact with Rose and Lin we
were impressed with their knowledge, professionalism, and customer service. They came to our home,
organized and priced the items, handled all the advertising (including contacting their many followers),
and had everything they needed for the day of the sale. We left early morning of the first sale day and
did not return until the afternoon of the second day. The amount they sold exceeded our expectations.
They then put us in touch with a service that took away all the remaining items and left the house
broom clean for the sale. What a relief!!!
To sum up – if you plan to sell your home and downsize, get a real estate agent who understands the
market, and attorney whose advice you trust, and CALL THE DUSTY OLD BAGS .



Hi Lin and Rose,

I wanted to thank you for handling the sale of the items in our family home.
From the first contact, you were responsive and helpful, and your
willingness to simply take over what otherwise would have been a very
heartbreaking task is greatly appreciated.  I truly enjoyed working with you
and you should take pride in yet another satisfied customer.

Lin & Rose -
Thank you for doing such a wonderful job selling the contents of our home in Colts Neck.
We were very impressed with the planning and hard work that went into staging the house,
pricing items, crowd control and more.
You took care of everything and allowed us to feel comfortable even after we moved out of
state by keeping us posted on your progress of getting the house ready for the sale.
Your many years of experience were clearly shown during the sale. Your patience (boy - you
have A LOT of patience), professionalism, and the way you kept everything organized and incontrol
was very impressive. When we drove by the first morning, and saw 50 cars outside by
8:30 am, with people running up the driveway to take a number for entry, we knew we were in
good hands. You sold almost EVERYTHING in 2 days - what a success!!
We can’t thank you enough and will proudly recommend your services to all who ask.
Thanks again!!!

Dear Lin, Rose and partners,
Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you..to our new best friends!   We can't thank-you enough for helping with the sale at my in-laws house.  You turned our "nightmare" into a pleasant and profitable experience.  
Your advice, professionalism, knowledge counsel, spirit, and hard work, made the sale days fun and stress free.      
We will highly recommend you to friends and family but will strongly encourage everyone to stop collecting and cleaning their houses now!  
It's amazing how much "stuff" we manage to accumulate over the years!    You're a winning team, and we're glad to have found you.  We'll be looking out for you future sales so we can stop by and say hi!
