Patrick Seeley- Even as a child at the mere age of 8, Pat thrived on his marketing intuition by enterprising his produce business selling cherry tomatoes for a quarter a basket to his hometown Safeway store in Warrensburg, Missouri.  Antiques and collectibles became second nature to Pat at an early age, due in art to his Dad’s adventures as an antique gas engine and gun collector.  Weekends for the Seeley’s (at least for the men folk) were spent in “hog heaven” attending multiple auction rings in determination to see if the struts on their station wagon could withstand 2 ton loads.  Needless to say, and partially due to protesting mothers and community yard keepers (hygienists), Pat and his family vacated the peaceful neighborly surroundings of residential Warrensburg and made refuge on a 50 acre plot of clay bottom land 8 miles North of Leeton, MO.  Throughout his teenage years when most young men develop a fascination for cars and other things…Pat would spend all of this spare time digging bottles, relic/treasure hunting, and perfecting his marketing skills at the local Chamber of Commerce Antique/Flea market back in Warrensburg.  Saturday nights when social functions were fair game, young Seeley would be returning home late displaying his days’ discoveries with jubilation, usually with a mild case of frostbite or with a couple of ticks as company.  Antique/collectible restoration and researching became Pat’s second schooling due in part again to his Dad’s high standards of collecting:  “collecting is 1% ownership and 99% knowledge/preservation of what you’re collecting,” and in accordance to his infamous hunting values, “whatever you kill you must clean”-Or in cases of collecting, “whatever you find you must restore.”…Thanks for taking the time to read a little about Pat’s past.  In dedication to his lifetime passion of collecting and selling, we’ve included a few highlights about his “professional” background:

  • B.S.B.A Degree in Marketing from Central Missouri State University.
  • 10 Year career as a Senior District Manager for American Dairy Queen, Inc., representing over 200 restaurants in eight states.
  • 10 Year career as a V.P. of Operations/Marketing for Premier Pyrotechnics, Inc.
  • Antique Store Owner throughout the 1990′s-Silk Stocking Lane Antique Mall in Ash Grove, MO
  • Professional Antique Dealer since 1987.
  • Ebay and Ebay Power Seller since 1998.

Personal Endeavors Include:  Parent of 2 fine boys (with Matthew continuing his Dad’s appreciation of Collectibles while working at Summit Estate Sales).  Club Editor of the Heart of America Postcard Club, Committee representative with a local Boy Scouts Troop (holding the rank of Eagle Scout), Children’s Miracle Network Telethon Volunteer during his tenure with American Dairy Queen, Inc.  Happily Married since 1987…With over 20 years of experience as a professional marketing and business manager and antique dealer, my dedication is my lifetime passion when dealing with your estate sale needs…with kind regards-Pat Seeley.
