  • You can sell anything on craigslist. Or ebay.

  • An antique dealer should be able to help you out.
    I would NOT take them to a scrap dealer. It would be a shame to have them melt down antiques.

  • I would take it to a few Antique shops and see what they say about it, 1 of them may even give a good price and buy it from you.

  • google pawn shops in your area. thats an item that would probably only have value to a collecter but ya never know. Also, as its silverplated and not full silver-not sure what value they can place on it. But again, google pawn shops and good luck :).

  • You could list it on eBay. I have sold a lot there. Get a membership (free) and go to the advanced search section. Put in your item and then click "completed listings" (down a few lines). That will show you if any pieces have sold and what they went for. Also, just put it in the regular search spaces and that will show you if anyone has some pieces currently listed for sale. Good luck!!

  • You could always try eBay or Craigslist. You could probably even take it to an Antique shop or maybe an Auction place.

  • try & see how much they are worth first. Many people wil try to rip you off. Antique dealer is good, they can also help you with questions.

  • Silverplate isn't as costly as sterling silver. You could also try an auction house.

  • Ebay. I would get them appraised first.
