Holly Harper, Owner and Founder of Sale By Holly LTD
Hi! My name is Holly. My story begins at the tender age of 7 when my aunt took me to a farm auction. I was amazed at the people, the auctioneer's rapid words, all of the items neatly displayed on tables, the people furiously bidding on the treasures they wanted. My aunt bought me an antique German stick lamb for a nickel, which I proudly clasped in my hands for the remainder of the auction. Later in the day, the auctioneer wheeled something surprising out of the barn - a coffin, and the bidding began on the coffin and it's contents. I tugged on my aunt Joanne's coat sleeve and asked her, "Aunt Joanne, what's in that thing?" She quipped back, "I don't know kiddo, but you get it all for one price!" I knew at that moment I was hooked.
As a young woman, I attended estate sales and tag sales, amassing my growing collection and knowledge of quirky treasures. In 1992 it finally occurred to me to make my fascination a career when my neighbor asked me to help her with a garage sale. After the success & excitement of the sale I knew that this was my calling.
In the past ten years, my business has taken off. Baby boomers are faced with the daunting task of helping their parents downsize, but also gripped by the desire to simplify their own lives. Being a baby boomer myself, I strive to be the caring resource to help all of those through the process of letting go.
Addie Wingard, Sale Coordinator
Hello, I'm Holly's daughter Addie! Growing up immersed in the world of antiques, art and all things unique, I've had the honor of learning from the best. I've been helping my mom with sales since I could walk, and decided to make this my full time career 8 years ago. For me, every home is an adventure and has a story to tell, I love being able to uncover that story and help it live on.

Elise Gage, Sale Coordinator
I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and gained an early appreciation for thrifting and up-cycling as a young girl. I love doing my job each week, and have been part of the Sale By Holly team since 2014. Many years of retail management experience translate easily to professional sale operations and high-quality customer service. I enjoy being able to offer a service that helps so many people in need - whether it’s support through the loss of a loved one, identifying valuable heirlooms, reducing clutter, or simply finding new homes or a second life for things. I am passionate about the environment and appreciate being able to keep things out of the landfill!

Hi, I'm Laura Crosby! I have a passion for learning the history and story of collectibles. For over eight years, I've been working for my Aunt Holly's company behind the scenes and finally made it a full-time career in 2020!

Bridgette Barnes, Sale Coordinator
Hi, I'm Bridgette Barnes! I am a New York native who came to Columbus to pursue my degree in art history. After graduating valedictorian from CCAD, I’ve taken an interest to tag sales & antiques. My favorite part about working with Sale By Holly is keeping treasures out of landfills and allowing new owners to enjoy them! I find it very fulfilling to provide our clients with a thoughtful, compassionate and efficient way to downsize and start fresh with a clean and empty home, whether they are moving, handling the loss of a loved one, or simply downsizing. I joined the Sale By Holly team full time in 2020 and am excited to expand my knowledge alongside these wonderful people!
