Established by Susie Osterberg in 1971, Osterberg’s is one of the oldest antiques and collectibles shops in California. The first shop was in an old mortuary (the stable and hearse garage was still attached) on the south side of Fifth Street between Pollasky and Woodworth Avenues. Requiring a larger location in 1973, Susie moved the shop to the N/W Corner of Clovis Avenue & Fifth Street. It became such an icon in the antiques and collectible world that is still known as the “Osterberg” building and folks come into the former shop location of Fifth Street looking for a connecting door to the famous “back room”. The estate liquidations branch began a short time later in 1973. Susie was joined by husband Fred in 1979 at the shop and daughter Kathy became a permanent member of the team in 1988 with her move from the Bay area. Even while living near Oakhurst, CA. and in the East Bay near Hayward, Kathy was never far from the “business” helping the family at estate sales and working within the group of dealers at the major shop in Hayward, CA.
Fred & Susie semi-retired in 1996 and Kathy became sole proprietor of the location at 631 Fifth street in 1997. In April 2011 that location was closed, and moved to 5th STREET ANTIQUES, in Clovis at Bullard & Pollasky. Kathy has moved onto the back deck in Fifth Street Antiques, 460 Pollasky, at the corner of 5th Street and Pollasky. She has kept the above phone number as contact for appointments.
Susie and Kathy became the “appraisal team” with Kathy’s move from the Bay Area providing on-site and written appraisals for individuals, families, clubs and organizations (as guest speakers) and those in the legal field. Kathy has been and still is the local “stand-up” appraiser for several clubs, and organizations and the Fresno County Library system (Kings & Tulare Libraries, also) for more than twenty years. She is the “go to gal” for many of the local antique dealers.
Currently Osterberg’s offers services for single or multiple item appraisals as well as Estate sales & liquidations. Estate sale fees are based upon an appraisal/set-up fee, percentage of the gross sales, cost of advertising, plus trash removal (if applicable). Other fees may be applied; those can be discussed during consultation.
Thank you for thinking of Osterberg’s.
