  • You need to know the true value of them first. Antique stores around here are only giving you what the item sells for on eBay. I still believe in eBay, sorry. However, you could try a dealer that collects that type of stuff... advertise on Craigslist and see what you get.

  • I have sold tons on eBay. I'd be glad to do a little research for you on what the items have sold for if you are not a member. They have a completed listings area where members can see what an item went for. Just message me if you'd like me to look. I'll need a good decription of the item to make it easier.

  • I would try craigslist. Also see if there is a colectors store near you. They will pay good money for things like that. You can also look up how much everything is worth and try to see if the antique store will give you that price or a little less then that.

  • Craigslist is an option, but it's not as secure as eBay. With eBay, you never have to meet someone face-to-face, and you never handle cash or checks directly.
