So you've got 'stuff' to sell. Now what?
Yes we can help you sell! We actually have several options to help you sell ranging from consignments in the store or online to utilizing our Estate Room so you can maximize your sales and minimize consignment fees.
Today's selling markets are far more sophisticated than they used to be. Buyers are inundated with options to buy from all sorts of businesses online. Ebay, Etsy, Amazon, Craiglist and Facebook Marketplace are just a few. We've been selling online for over 15 years so we can help you figure out the best place and marketing strategy for your items. In addition to selling out of our brick and mortar store, here are some places we can help you sell:
Every Item has a unique market. The above options each have advantages and disadvantages to using. Some of them you can choose to use yourself. But for the same reason you may not cut your own hair, we can provide professional services that may increase the amount your item sells for. It is quite possible you may even net more allowing us to sell your items after our fees than if you did selling it yourself!
We have an Ebay store for over 15 years. We bring confidence to both buyers and sellers and make the process easier for everyone. Advantages we can give you:
Rubylane is the world's largest curated marketplace for antiques, vintage collectibles, vintage fashion, fine art and jewelry.
Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and supplies, as well as unique factory-manufactured items. These items cover a wide range, including art, photography, clothing, jewelry, food, bath and beauty products, quilts, knick-knacks, and toys.
Once a valuable place to sell anything and everything, Craiglist has had it's fair share of challenges dealing with scammers. If you are a novice on the computer, we do not suggest you sell here because a naive anxious seller can be manipulated. Not to mention their is risk in having strangers come to your home. Facebook Marketplace has become a better option for most people selling goods on a local level. That said, all buyers are not on Facebook and this shouldn't be overlooked. It is still a good place to advertise a piece for pickup.
Facebook Marketplace is the trendy place to sell online. With over 1 BILLION active users, Facebook can be a great place to advertise your items. Unfortunately, that number also makes it a potential disadvantage because competition and quantity of listings can mean you have limited time to get somebody's attention. It also means you have to deal with people meeting you. It has gained a reputation for people showing interest and then never showing up. So while not a perfect option, it is free and anybody can do it if you have the time and desire to.
Listing takes time and money. What qualifies varies by where we sell and what kind of a listing it is. Here are the basic things you need to know.
