Before You Sell An Item…

 

Before you sell your item, make sure that you have built up your knowledge on your antique, and that you know its market worth. If you have not identified what the make of the item is, this is a good place to start. Try to locate the manufacturer’s mark at the base of the antique to find the name of the maker, which can then be googled to find out more about the age, originality and value of the item. 

 

Once you know more about your item, it is important to see how many others are selling this item and what price they are selling for. Identifying a price bracket for your item will help you stay un-swayed by offers that are too low, although it is important to factor in the quality of the antique and how rare it is.

 

Where To Sell And Buy?

 

Where you choose to sell or buy antiques will really depend on the kind of item that is in question. Something to consider when selling or buying is the access that you have to auctions. Essentially, different methods will work for different people.

 

A popular option for 2022 is selling or buying antiques online, due to the ease and accessibility to a wider audience of people. Sites like Ebay and Etsy can be good for selling unique pieces and you can set the price or leave it open for bids, however, the fees can quickly rack up. Even though you can choose to only pay fees if the item sells, you will still have to factor in return costs, as Ebay can force a return if they decide to heed a customer’s complaint – so stay prepared.

 

Another popular option is selling to a dealer or retailer. An experienced retailer will be able to offer you honest and fair prices and give good advice, without trying to steal your money. If you are unsure and want to sell to someone you can trust who won’t charge auction house fees and commission, get in touch with us at PM Antiques and we would be more than happy to help you.  You can also buy antiques from an experienced dealer, and they will have genuine, quality antiques for sale, so you can trust that you won’t be scammed.
