Many people are looking to make some extra money by selling unwanted antiques at dealers or on online auction sites such as eBay. There are many advantages to this strategy but there are also some things you should consider. Firstly you need to decide why you are selling the antiques in the first place. Are you trying to get rid of them because they have lost their value? Do you want to turn a quick profit? Or do you no longer have need of the items but what to ensure they are appreciated by a new owner?

If the answer to these questions is yes then it’s probably best to find the right place to sell them to. There are specialist dealers, local antique stores and auction sites that you could consider. If you choose to sell online, remember that you will need to consider the secure postage of possibly delicate items.

Some people collect and sell antiques professionally and others do it simply to raise some additional money for the family. Whether you collect professionally or as a hobby, have inherited items you don’t want or made a rare find in a charity store or boot sale, finding the right buyer for your antiques takes a bit of patience and research if you want to find the best price.
