Antique Consignment Sales
sales are becoming the dominant method of antique selling antiques for many
antique dealers and antique related venues
including auction houses,
malls, shops, and other
antique related websites. The typical antique stores that remain
in any given area are
now trying to claim they offer this type
of service. Those sales are typically to a very limited and localized audience
and not to a worldwide audience our antique sales websites cater to.
I have been selling antique tools from a large and diverse collection
(over 15,000) for one consignor for over 10 years. We are finished handling another antique collection related to general store,
ironing and advertising for some folks in OR. That took several years. We have
also handled several collections sad or
pressing irons for other consignors. We sold over 300 antique and collectible sewing machines for yet
another party on consignment. We sold 2 collections of antique Bootjacks for consignors,
another collection we sold focused on antique mine lighting and more. In addition to these large
and small antique collections we are also helping numerous individual sellers sell individual antiques
and collectibles related to our many areas of specialty.

examining it and determining its real condition and determining a
reasonable value I will make you a
fair and reasonable offer. If you are not

cost. Or I will try and help you sell from my website for the amount you did
have in mind, if within reason, and neglected to reveal when you said
