In the rolling hills near the Jordan River sits our Big Lebowski sale in Riverton. This is one of our biggest sales, if not the biggest, and we have been liquidating estates for over 30 years! Our client had lots of quirky interests. The house is stuffed to the gills with treasures, it took us 8 weeks to process (usually only takes us 2-3) working 7 days a week! The client came from a wealthy family with lots of hobbies and interests, he was a clown for the fire department for decades teaching fire safety to children. He collected everything under the sun, we can confidentially say this is the only estate we found a Korean War ambulance parked in the garage.
