A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art
Quite possibly one of the most easiest types of items to post online and great for a Store inventory. Yet the market has slumped to Pit of Vipers lows. How can we honestly tell someone who has purchased a hummel price guide that they're only going to get 10-20% of the book value?
We usually end up turning the computer screen right to the person in disbelief and showing them how bad the market is and how overinflated the Book Value is. We end up making excuses about their hummels. "Book Value means New In Box" "This has a little crazing so it's not going to sell well."
Just want to get an idea from anyone out there how they might do things differently to maybe get closer to half of book value. Or possibly a way to complain to the makers of the price guide to tell them they are way off.
