Established in 1995
Brenda and Steve Mattson are co-owners of the Mattson Co. This
husband and wife team began their business buying storage lockers at
auction in the early '90s; nearly two decades before Storage Wars was on-air.
Mattsons began selling their auction finds at Kobey's Swap Meet in 1995
and have been fixtures at San Diego's premier swap meet since then. In
1998 the couple took their rare and vintage finds to the Internet as eBay sellers and are also active on Amazon.
thereafter they started liquidating estates. Now the Mattson Co. offers
full service estate liquidation. We do estate sales, estate sale buy outs,
and even estate clean out work.
In May of 2013 the Mattson Co. expanded
its retail operation to a brick and mortar estate liquidation and
thrift store. The 12,000 square foot store located on Morena Boulevard in beautiful Bay Park had a
large selection of antiques, collectibles, designer and mid-century
furniture, and other high end estate finds. The second floor of our thrift shop had tons
of pre-owned collectibles, books, movies, music, furniture, clothing, and more at rock bottom
- AS OF JULY 10, 2016, OUR MORENA THRIFT STORE HAS CLOSED IT'S DOORS. We will continue all other aspects of the business as normal.
