Small Business Saturday

IMG_5476

This Saturday, Nov. 26th is designated as a special day to honor and shop local businesses in your community. We wanted to take a quick minute to share what we love about being a small business, and thank you, our customers and clients, for keeping us going!

The Michael Taylor company has been on the forefront of the estate and moving sale scene in Nashville since 2008, when Michael started the company with a handful of workers. Since then, Michael Taylor Estate and Moving sales has grown to become the area’s leading estate and moving sale company, with a 9,000 sq ft warehouse/retail space. We’ve conducted sales in tiny East Nashville cottages and huge Brentwood mansions, and everywhere in between.

IMG_5480

The company has created 15-20 (varying seasonally) jobs, both full and part-time, for local Nashville folks. While in recent years, we’ve seen national chains come in to town and establish franchised estate sale companies, we’ve been here all along–creating jobs, serving the estate sale needs of our neighbors and friends, making friends with our dear and loyal customers.

You hear a lot about “green” businesses these days–businesses that are committed to keeping their environmental footprint small, or have a strong commitment to recycling. Without actually aspiring to trendy labels, the Michael Taylor Company is as “green” as they come. Through our estate sales, we re-introduce tons of diverse household items into our local community and marketplace. When you buy a pieces of antique furniture from our retail store rather than picking up a piece of new, imported furniture from a big box retailer, you are recycling this item by giving it new usefulness in your home. It may seem different to think of what we are doing as part of the “reduce, re-use, recycle” movement but we are making environmental impact on a local level–and you are, too, when you shop with us!

IMG_5477

Many small businesses (also local!) source their goods from us, creating a livelihood for countless local people in the vintage resale industry. Resellers shop our sales to stock antique stores, estate jewelry stores, flea market booths, Ebay stores, craft shows and more.

IMG_5479

This Nov. 26th, we hope you will consider shopping with us…we’ve got a great estate sale (see link to listing on our homepage) and Michael Taylor At Home will be offering 50% off of all glassware and 50% off jewelry. In addition to Saturday, we’re also open Weds., 10-5, Fri., 10-5 and Sun., 1-5.

Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Small Business Saturday and THANK YOU for being our wonderful customers and clients. We think the world of you and love to see your smiling faces!

My best,

Michael Taylor and Co.

In the Spotlight: Tom T. Hall Estate Sale

IMG_5376We are honored this week to conduct the estate sale for award-winning country music singer/songwriter, Mr. Tom T. Hall. Known to his fans as, “The Storyteller,” Hall is perhaps best remembered for his tremendous pop crossover hit song, “Harper Valley PTA.”

IMG_5377Hall arrived in Nashville with $46 and a guitar; within months the songs he penned for country artists including Johnny Cash, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings, Jeannie C. Riley and Bobby Bare were climbing the charts.

On February 12, 2008, Hall was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame for his many recordings, hit songs and accomplishments. He was truly a great man in country music with a legendary career.

IMG_5362

Hall’s estate features a large home filled with an assortment of his own musical instruments and books, plus beautiful handmade furniture crafted and signed by Hall himself (a man of many talents!). This very special sale is your opportunity to own a piece of country music history…you won’t want to miss it!
