The Estate Sale Queen of Dallas dropped a massive tip Thursday, releasing the address of what she considers one of the best estate sales she has seen in her 40-year career.

Janelle Stone is the president and owner of an estate services firm, and while she usually services the Park Cities area of Dallas exclusively, she recently made an exception.

Located in Graham, a two-hour drive northwest of DFW, this extravagant sale was meticulously prepared for over five weeks by Stone’s dedicated staging and pricing crew.

On offer at the mansion located at 924 Kintner Dr. is apparently just about everything you could ever want to buy. Items are priced between 50 cents and $200,000.

“This is amazing. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and you’ll never see this stuff again,” Stone said, according to NBC 5.

The sale will be held from May 19 to May 20 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

According to the listing, buyers can have their pick from a large collection of fine art, a host of top-of-the-line pieces of furniture and other home goods, and a slew of designer clothes, accessories, and shoes.

Security measures have been taken considering the value of some of the items, such as a 7-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring by Oscar Heyman purchased from Neiman Marcus.

The fine jewelry has been removed from the property, surveillance equipment was installed, and five armed police officers will be on the premises.

Stone and her 30-year-old son Wen, who runs the business with her, gave NBC 5 a televised sneak peek at some of the items up for grabs.

The brands represented in the estate sale reportedly include Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Oscar de la Renta, Todd’s, Hermes, Nancy Gonzalez, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Elizabeth Locke, Elizabeth Gage, Henry Denay, Jean Mahie, Charles Turi, Bulgari, Tiffany Van Cleef, Burberry, Perry Ellis, Daum Pate de Verre, Moncler… the list truly goes on and on.

There has already been considerable interest shown in the Graham mansion’s wares, as Stone told The Dallas Morning News.

“We know customers are coming with moving trucks,” Stone said. “Most of this will go into other peoples’ homes. It’s pristine.”

Some items like the engagement ring are subject to a sealed bid.

But remember, not everything carries a six-figure price tag.

“There’s costume jewelry that’s priced at $65 and other lower-priced items such as books, tools, and fishing gear,” Wen explained, according to the DMN.

Stone recommends booking a hotel in Graham if you want to check out the sale. There is no signup sheet and no pre-sales.

A wait outside the door is to be expected and the usual terms of sale apply, such as all items sold “as is” and no returns or exchanges permitted.

After 1 p.m. on Saturday, a 50% price cut will be applied to whatever is left.
