I Antique Online

A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

Ok, the time may finally be coming after 39 years to minimize our antiques business(for the same reason affecting all of us worldwide-the downturn in the trade).  We have perhaps 8000-10000 item/lots and will keep a 3000-4000' selection of them in a personal warehouse to store and wholesale from v. our big retail operation. We already downsized once and moved 7 semis worth of inventory from one state to our new home in FL last year(whew).

 

Anyway, the question posed is: what/where would you advise is the best way fro a fast-ish (2-4 month) sell off of mainly French furniture, 100's of lighting fixtures and seemingly endless smalls these days? I find that most online venues are slow & tedious, yet public auction (which we had  at the old shop) returns <10% on the retail(and very fairly priced)$. Now I understand why it's largest organisms (dinosaurs, sabre tooth tigers) that are the first to die off in bad times and the roaches are the survivors...!

Good point, I may still need the license though or hire a pro and do the rest myself.
