I've come to get the idea that any antique or collectible item has 3 values: 1) Intrinsic - what it's worth as scrap. 2) Book - just what it says, or for what a professional antique dealer would appraise it. 3) Market - the value for which you can realistically sell it.

There an antique show and sale in a few weeks in my area. More on the dates and time here:


If the weather is good, I may throw some junk out on the front lawn and see if I get any "nibblers" from folks on their way to the show. Just a warm-up for "the biggie" on the weekend of May 18th when our town has scheduled its community-wide sale.

lillian as long as those are sold prices you are using for compairson some times it is a fishing price like how much can I ask for this ? customers always want a deal.

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on April 16, 2013 at 10:21am

I research what I can through etsy, ebay and local classifieds, the  get an average price, then cut that in half. This is the price I ask.

Comment by Craig Phillips / B & C Emporium on April 16, 2013 at 9:40am

lillian, people have been told be cheap you just want rid of this stuff,

I have people in my store every week make offers of less than 1/2 of the sticker, IE, I had 2 unique fruit jars not rare but unique had 12 each, gal picked them up and said would you take 10 for both I said no, she later picked them up and brought them to the counter and asked what would you take for them, I told her 11 each and she bought them

I had my first sale of the season this past weekend. I don't know what most people are looking for, but apparently it's something I don't have. People were stopping, but few bought, and almost everyone asked for a huge reduction in the asking price. However, I did sell a a dresser for $35 (full asking price) - that was the "big" item for the sale. And considering I made $62.50 all weekend, you can see I didn't sell much else.  The cold , damp weather may have put people off. I have some old wooden soap (Octagon) boxes my step-grandfather made over into tool boxes. I had them priced $30 each or both for $50 - one man offered me $5 for both! Needless to say I refused that generous offer. One woman wanted a solid metal patio set I have for $30, but said she only had $10 on her. This offer I also refused. One woman picked up an armload of small stuff. When I said $5 for everything, she just dumped it down on a table and walked out; didn't even bother to negotiate. It seemed nobody wanted to pay the asking price. My reply to these folks is that it's too early in the garage sale season to let things go for practically nothing and to come back in October and if I still have the item they want, I may be more inclined to bargain. I had several young guys stop and ask if I had guitars - that seems to be the hot item this year. Another woman just wanted wool blankets. Our community-wide sale is the weekend of May 18th. Hopefully the weather will improve by then and put people in a better buying mood.

Hire a kid - teenager in your neighborhood - very unlikely he would get hurt and for a few bucks, most young guys are happy to help.

Even if someone were to get injured your home owners would cover it anyway - think your being to cautious dear! :)
