November 12th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Oh, good grief.  Christmas was on full display back in October and earlier in this Peoria, Arizona home.  All I want for Christmas are home stagers!

This is a coyote-themed room.  Please notice the Wile E. Coyote doll holding a beer can and an American flag.  Awesome.

Since the refrigerator doors were completely covered with stuff, the seller had to start taping things to the cabinet doors.

Summer is hot.  It’s the dog days of August for sure.

Coats are rarely worn in Phoenix, but oftentimes on full display.

It’s a Kitchen By Definition

August 11th, 2013 · 2 Comments

This Perry, Florida room is functioning as a kitchen.  It has an oven/range, a coffee maker, a sink, a dishwasher, a microwave, and a toaster oven as a bonus.  But will it meet buyers’ expectations as a kitchen?

Two cow, excuse me, steer skulls on display in a Jonestown, Texas bedroom.  The fire extinguisher next to the bed is quite handy when things get too hot.

King of the Jungle

January 30th, 2013 · 11 Comments

A few days ago, we posted a photo of a taxidermy hoard, with a polar bear and dozens of dead animals.

We have two more photos to share, thanks to Cory Chalmers of 1-800-Hoarders.com.  For anyone who’s seen the Hoarders TV show (airing on Monday nights on A&E TV; season finale this Monday, February 4th), you’ll recognize Cory as their clean-out expert.  Cory runs his own clean-up service Steri-Clean Inc. (aka 1-800-Hoarders).

At a recent cleaning job, Cory was surprised to see this in the bathroom.

He also saw this hoard of dead animals in another room.  The owner put a crown on the lion; King of the Jungle.  And the owner is now officially King of the Idiots.

Overkill, Literally

January 27th, 2013 · 18 Comments

Sure to tick off PETA, for sure.  Dozens of killed and stuffed animals in a Cave Creek, Arizona home, none of which seem to be part of regulated population control.  The photo’s caption reads, “Trophy Room.”  Trophy for what?  Biggest animal killer?  The dead polar bear is sure to upset some buyers.  They might tell the seller to get stuffed.  [click on photo to expand]  Thank you, Lori, for sending us this disturbing photo.
