Buying and Selling Antiques| Antique Dealer with 25 years experience reveals insider secrets of buying and selling antiques and collectibles

Welcome to Buying and Selling Antiques

Welcome to our site on Buying and Selling Antiques. We are sharing our knowledge that  we have gained in our twenty-five plus years in the antiques business. We hope you enjoy the site and find the information you were seeking. I will give helpful hints to dealers or those considering becoming antique dealers as well as all of those who just love antiques and sometimes buy tehm.

We have been mall dealers, show dealers, store owners, and flea market dealers. We also owned our own refinishing shop for many years. We have  sold online on eBay as well as other antique sites. We have bought and sold at antique auctions. Starting in 1991 we began importing our own containers from England. Then we started taking other people on antique buying trips to England 3-4 times a year. So we have a lot of experience in all facets of the antique business.

New information will be added on a regular basis. Our goal is to give as much helpful information as we can to both buyers and sellers of antiques as well as just bringing you the latest in antiques on TV and the news. Hopefully we will become your “go to” site for everything to do with antiques. Let us know if there is something you want us to cover.

If you click on one of the categories below or to the right, you will be taken to that category page. You will find a live link to any article at the end of the description and also at the bottom of the page. Thanks for coming to our site on Buying and Selling Antiques.

    I have made a facebook group for antique buyers and sellers. Anything over $100 requires an appraisal to be presented to the buyer at or before the time of purchase. I believe this will help to unite people who share my same interest and love for the “things of old”. Everyone has a facebook these days :)

  2. I have an antique organ from 1876 with the original receipt I would like a price on it you could contact me at home number 1418 788 3382

      I have never had much luck with antique organs, even though many of them are beautiful. There is just not much demand for them. I hope you have better luck with yours.

    I’ve found a food tray from a thrift store. …l just wanted to know it’s an antique or not …and also I’ve got pictures

    • Chuck says:

      Usually the older ones have a date on them. It is usually tiny inside a line going around the tray. That is if we are on the same page by your description of “food tray.”

    My husband has recently purchased an old cotton mill that they are going to renovate. It was built in early 1900s and there are tons of light fixtures, doors, and other antiques that will be replaced. Was wondering if you could help point me in the right direction as to how I should go about selling them. It’s a 600,000 sq ft building so that means lots of goodies that we are going to need to find homes for.

    I have a rattan couch with the original cushions that I believe to be made by Paul frankl . There’s also a matching chair and one that doesn’t match, I’m unsure of the origin of the one that doesn’t match but they do have metal plates on them. The couch has 6 bands and is a TRUE pretzel shape on the ends and is separate pieces versus one whole piece.
    I also have some rattan barstools that I’m unsure about. 5 Danish sitting chairs that have a lot of the original seat and backing straps and the wood on each chair is is very good to good condition. I’ve saw some that sold, after refurbishing, online for $534 each.
    I also have a metal framed canvas, foldable reclined lounge chair. I have yet to find anything like it during any of my explorations on the web.
    I also have some flatware that is being sold for 25 to $75 per piece that is made of pewter, stainless, and fish bone. I also have a bunch of vintage dishes. The amount of items I have is to overwhelming to photograph and post on some of the popular sales sites.
    I’m in a real financial predicament and I badly need to sell ALL OF THESE ITEMS ASAP without getting taken advantage of. I forgot to mention the various Barbie, g.I. Joe, star wars, star trek, tmnt, beanie babies, etc etc toys I also have for sale.
    Is there reputable dealer that is relatively close to the panhandle of Florida that would come make a house call?
