  • Probably for 25% of the original cost.

    If they are antiques, that's a totally different question.

  • If you bought it new what did you pay for it? In our area if you're selling at a yard sale it's ten cents on the dollar for used stuff. If it's like new it's a bit more. If it's an antique, dealers usually pay up to thirty cents on the dollar. If you're listing through the local want ads, check what the market seems to bear. Different areas want different kinds of things.
