David Hazekamp, owner of Redlands Estate Sale Consignments, was born and raised in Grand Rapids Michigan and from a family of five brothers & sisters. "My brother James Hazekamp and Grandma were very much a part of who I am today. My passion for old things to my Grandma and my brother for being my mentor. James was a successful Interior Designer in the Palm Springs area for many years. It was a major loss for me when he passed away.
My passion for antiques started at a young age. As soon as I could drive I was out hitting all the Estate & Garage Sales. By the time I was 18 I had furnished my parents basement and had refinished and sold 100's of pieces of furniture and treasures. I was always planning a sale at my parents house. Of course, lots of books and educating myself all along. The economy in Michigan at that time was very depressed. I chose to leave the state and move to California where my Mother said, "Well, if you can make it in California you can make it anywhere!"
David has lived in California for 31 years. "I worked for some small companies in the LA area until I moved to the Palm Springs area and managed for I Magnins and Bullocks Wilshire training in management and customer service. I was happy to have been part of an era that was based on excellent customer service and retail skills that are hard to find in today's industry. When people learn that I worked for them they always have a story to tell of those days. I remember when....."
"I moved to Redlands over 18 years ago to specifically buy a1887 Victorian home...a lifetime dream of mine that we have been restoring ever since. Redlands has all the things I love in what once was a small town feel with great roots and history and, of course, GREAT Victorian homes. Centrally located you just can't beat Redlands for what I was looking for. My partner Mitch and I just celebrated our 27th Anniversary and we still spend time in Palm Springs and enjoy the cities growth and restaurants for a day get-a-way. We also love spending time with our dogs Dixie & Rebel and the Cat Victoria--all are rescue animals."
"Hard to believe that we celebrated Redlands Estate Sale Consignments 10 year Anniversary this month. It has been quite the journey, definitely not an easy one. Opening with 2500 sq ft with our first building on Orange to our present location with 25000 sq ft. Mainly due to a loyal clientele base that continues to support us to this day. My thanks to all of them!"
