Selling your antiques can be an emotional time. Maybe they have sentimental value to you. Maybe you’ve had them in your possession for a very long time. Or maybe they don’t, and you were planning on selling them for a profit eventually.
Regardless of your reason for selling your antiques, you want to get the most cash you can for them. But maybe you also want to sell them fast. And maybe you also don’t want to sell them online but would rather sell them locally.
These are all things you need to take into consideration when selling your antiques, and you will have to weigh which things are more important to you because there will be trade-offs for each.

If You Want To Sell Your Antiques Locally
The internet is great, but sometimes you just want to get a transaction done face-to-face, which is usually quick, easy and more personable and pleasant. But one of the key principles of getting the most cash for your antiques is to get it in front of as many potential buyers as possible, or someone who has the connections with other buyers. By selling locally, there’s a chance that you’re limiting yourself there and therefore may not get the highest selling price.
What are some good options when selling locally? A local antiques dealer, a local pawn shop or a local Meetup group. Neatstuff Collectibles will also travel to you where ever you are, so we are just as convenient as any local option when you’re deciding to sell your antiques!
If You Want To Sell Your Antiques For As Much As Possible
Usually, your top goal is to get the highest selling price possible for your antiques. If this is your goal, then you need to make sure you get your item in front of as many buyers as possible, or in front of a dealer or broker who has access to as many buyers as possible. We all know that an item is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it, but the more people you offer the item to, the higher a chance there is of getting in front of a very motivated and able buyer.
What are some good options for getting the highest price possible? Antiques brokers such as Neatstuff Collectibles would be your first bet. Other options, if you want to put the work in, would be Craigslist and eBay.
If You Want To Sell Your Antiques For Cash

Regardless of if you’re looking for a cash or consignment offer, Neatstuff Collectibles would love to hear what you’re looking at selling and figure out a deal structure that works for you! Other places that may accept both forms of payment would be your local pawn shop.
