Straight from Africa.

These are some things my uncle brought from Africa a few years ago. They are really neat. I have a really tall shield, apparently it's an African dancing shield. It's really big, and in the way. I would decorate with it but its not really my scene. Therefore I want to sell it. But I'm not sure how to price something like this, or where to try to sell it.

Thats a wooden purse. Believe it or not.

A few of the masks he brought back

The shield I want to try and sell

Maybe get someone to appraise it and find a consignment shop or somewhere to sell.

Neat. I have no idea what to do with something like that.

Maybe try finding a local shop that sells similar things (like an antique/exotics shop) and ask them.

Yeah maybe. I have no idea where to get something like this appraised though.

Advertise for a yard sale near the black neighborhoods. You might get a better target audience there.

Ebay or amazon. It really looks amazing! I tried to join a volunteer service for Africa but it wasn't an all expenses paid type of deal. I really would have loved to go

My uncle was lucky enough to help build and set up the computers and networks there for the embassy. He was there for about 5years.
