Golden Bow Estate Sale & Liquidation Services

Golden Bow Estate Sales is owned and operated by Louise, formerly of Hill Country Estate Sales, in New Braunfels, TX. Louise tutored under Norma Garvey, founder of Max's Haus Vintage Mercantile and Hill Country Estate Sales.  Norma had a depth of knowledge and helped Louise learn the business from start to finish. 

Norma was an amazing woman with deep roots in the New Braunfels area.  Golden Bow Estate Sales only emerged due to the untimely passing of Norma late in 2021.  Louise is carrying on and honoring Norma's tradition, staying true to the philosophy Norma taught her on how to run a successful estate sale.

First, develop a great relationship with the family whose estate is being served, understanding their needs and the needs of the estate.

Second, price right so that most merchandise is moved on the first day of the sale. 

The Golden Bow philosophy is to clear the house with merchandise sales while still keeping the sale lucrative for the family.  Typically the family has other important issues to deal with surrounding the estate.  They need peace of mind when it comes to the liquidation sale.

Louise has over 20 years of experience in the resale market.  She was an early adopter of eBay and Etsy.  Her meticulous eye for design and her creative skills won her a spot on the 6th season of Project Runway  Her love for antiques and vintage began in her teens and never waned.  She opened her first vintage/antique shop in 2019, Golden Bow Designs, with her husband Matt.  Those same skills apply to crafting the perfect estate sale.
