At 8AM, Jamie Meloni and Kelly Wilson invited Danny Triplett to the discussion! Danny Triplett has served as the president of Full House Liquidation since he founded the Tampa-based company in 2010. The family-owned business, referred to in short as FHL, is a local Bay area estate-sale company, specializing in entire household liquidations. Triplett is also a certified personal property appraiser with the Certified Appraiser’s Guild of America (CAGA) out of St Louis. Just last summer, he sent one of his client’s original Norman Rockwell pencil etchings off to Sotheby’s in New York City, and saw it sell for $10,000.
Over the past seven years, Triplett has seen his company grow, not so much in size, as it has in quality. In the local Bay area estate sale realm, his company is known for conducting high quality estate liquidations. Full House Liquidation has appeared on TV, 5 times over the last 3 years. Everything from their large-scale auction of the entire contents of The Historic Don Vicente Hotel in Ybor city last summer, to their recent liquidation of the multi-million dollar family home of the late world famous opera singer, Maria Callas, in Odessa. Triplett’s company, Full House Liquidation, services four counties throughout the Bay area, including Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando. The phone calls and emails that continue to come in each week, are no doubt a result of TV shows like American Pickers and Antiques Roadshow. These shows have definitely created an intriguing sensation, which continues to draw national attention to the niche industry of estate-sales. In the U.S. alone, estate sales have become a billion dollar per year industry nationwide. What was once an unknown and untapped market, has now become an intriguing and quickly growing industry that sees people everywhere, scrambling to find their next… “Hidden treasure”!
