"I employed the help of Tina Hayward and Kit and Kaboodle Trading Company on the passing of my sister.
I am from the mainland and was referred to Tina by friends of my sister. Tina helped me sort through all of the items in a three story house, quickly separating items that could be sold on consignment and which to donate to my favourite charity.
I had no hesitation handing over access to the house for an estate sale and was very pleased to find the house spotless for the new occupants when they were done."
B. Barber, 2019
"I would not hesitate to refer Tina to anyone needing help with an estate. She has an excellent eye for antique, knows the market and helps lighten a sad task."
"I sold my house in September 2017 in Qualicum Beach British Columba and as I was downsizing to a condominium here in Calgary I had many things that I needed to sell.
Kit and Kaboodle was extremely helpful to me and come over with a truck first to move some of the heavier things to their store and later with a van to take some of the smaller things. They helped me sort through and pack the things which could be sold and those that I would have to donate to charity. As my wife had recently passed away it was a very stressful time for me and their service helped me so much.
Over the past 18 months things have slowly sold and whenever I phoned up asking what the balance was they always sent the money owing to me quickly by interatc transfer. As far as pricing I believe that their experience helps set the right price, and their location generates lots of traffic. As an example, I tried to sell some rather nice mirrors myself, but was not successful in getting a good price, but I was more than happy with the amount I got through the The Kit and Kaboodle".
Alex G. Dickson
"I contacted Tina to see if she would consign my son's estate jewelry, as there was a huge selection, alot of it was high quality costume jewelry from an on-line site and was brand new, so I was delighted that she agreed to take it.
She took each item and diligently searched from values and priced them fairly, not to mention what a nack she has for displaying them.I am so impressed with her displays.
She has logged each item in pdf form so I know exactly what is still for sale and what has been sold, at which time she send me an e-transfer, which is efficiency!"
I recommend her highly and enjoy doing business with her.
D Wilde, 2019
A year ago, I made the decision to sell my home in Craig Bay (Parksville) and move to an independent living facility. The move meant a significant downsizing. An estate sale resulted in the selling of a considerable amount of the contents not able to be moved, especially furniture. However, there remained a significant volume of saleable items that Tina Hayward agreed to take under consignment to her Kit and Kaboodle stores. She gave me a detailed inventory of 238 items. A significant amount of the inventory has been sold and money sent to me. I have no hesitation recommending Kit and Kaboodle for consignment.
