We are not interested in China, Dishes or Silverware at this time


Due to the number of emails we receive each day, the following information must be provided if you wish for a prompt reply.  If you are uncertain as to what price you may want to take the time to do some research, our years of experience tell us that everyone has a price in mind.

  • email us pictures of the item or items
  • include with your pictures any additional information regarding condition, items need to be in good useable condition
  • include your asking price, please remember this is a retail store if you are looking at a top dollar, we suggest you try selling it on your own first, then get in touch with us. Remember what you GOOGLE is what people are asking not necessarily what items have sold for.
  • can you deliver the items, if we have to arrange a pickup, it must be in the city, only larger items, that will be factored into the offer

**In the event you require us to come to your home for an estate purchase, eg. at least a full truck load of items, please contact the store to discuss the items available, your prices etc.

***We do our best to offer a fair price, we have 15 years of buying and selling to rely on.  Due to the amount of emails we receive and phone calls daily to help us limit the going back and forth, we ask that you provide all the above mentioned information.  We do our best to respond within 3 days, however to help us keep that goal, only reasonable offers will be responded to.

We appreciate people contacting us and our goal is to work with everyone on a professional and individual basis.

If we feel your items would better suit one of our 43 different vendors, we can share your e-mail inquiries, photos and asking price with them.

***Please note: We do not provide appraisals.***
