There’s an old saying that goes something to the effect of “If you love what you do, it isn’t work.” Such is the case for Earlene Moore, owner of Sunshine Liquidators, 4704 Martha Berry Highway in Armuchee.
Moore, who formerly owned a construction company, works very closely with families to help them dispose of items through estate sales.
Sunshine Liquidators is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., or whenever people stop coming in, Tuesday through Saturday
“It’s something I always wanted to do, I love antiques and I love beautiful furniture,” Moore said. “I like people, dealing with people. I owned a construction company for years and it’s not one-on-one with people.”
Brenda Tuggle of Tuggle’s Wall Coverings occupies a large section at the front the business. Tuggle has been in business in Rome on Broad Street and out in the Coosa community for close to 23 years.
Sunshine Liquidators, located in the former Street Chrome USA motorcycle shop, also has space for almost ten dealers who offer everything from fine Polish stoneware to costume jewelry and classic pieces of furniture.
Earline Moore’s daughter, Emily Moore, also helps run the business which currently has nine booths primarily back in the former shop section of the building.
Earline even has a man cave located in the back of the building with a huge flat-screen TV for the gents to sit down and entertain themselves while their wives look for bargain pieces.
The store has a huge Christmas tree — done in the form of a Scarlet O’Hara type of motif — inside the lobby to welcome visitors during the holiday season.
