CarePartners’ patients and their families often struggle with the practical aspects of aging: downsizing from life in a larger home to a smaller one, often at a retirement home; settling the estate of a recently deceased family member; or moving to another state. In every situation, the question was the same — “What do I do with all of this stuff?”

CarePartners Foundation established CarePartners Estate Sale Services in 1009 to answer that question.

“We find that people at all stages of life can often use a little help figuring out what to do with possessions they have accumulated over the years,” said Brent Wyatt, director of retail operations. In just five years, the Estate Sales Services team has helped 825 families.

CarePartners Estate Sale Services is celebrating its fifth anniversary with an estate sale and appraisal fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 5-6 at 105 Fairview Road, Asheville. In advance of the sale, there will be a wine and cheese preview of the estate sale from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, at 105 Fairview Road, Asheville.

“We’re particularly excited about the appraisal fair,” Wyatt said. “It will be a little like “Antiques Roadshow” without the television cameras and with Asheville’s own great appraisers: Richard Hatch of Richard Hatch and Associates, and Cody Reid and Aaron Edwards of Brunk Auctions. Who knows what treasures people will bring in?”

Verbal appraisals cost $10 per item with a limit of three items per person.

Buyers bringing five cans of food for Loving Food Resources, a food bank that supports people living with HIV/AIDS and patients being cared for by in-home hospice services, will receive an additional 10 percent off their purchase.
