Downsizing, Death, Divorce and Debt Are the 4 ‘D’s’ of This Estate-Sales Franchise
Growing up, sisters Morgan Breakey and Mariah Cope had parents who were passionate about finding treasures, trinkets and “the perfect piece.” And their daughters soon caught the bug: By their early 20s, the two women, based in Raleigh, NC, were attending estate sales as resellers themselves. After realizing they could turn their hobby into a business, they looked for a way to do this that would allow them to be active in the lives of their five children — ages from infant to 9 years. They found that solution in Blue Moon, a franchise company that specializes in the liquidation of people’s assets. Today, the two moms bring their kids to the sales, where the little ones help prepare for the sale and host lemonade stands for the customers.
