Consignment Shops for Selling

I happened to be in a nice consignment shop today and was impressed with their display of sterling pieces. I don't know why I have not mentioned this approach to selling sterling before. So, if you are looking to sell something, this might be worth trying. Here are some points that come to mind (my opinions only):
  • I think selling a complete set might be better than selling odd pieces.
  • Find a shop that deals in high end items, such as nice antiques. It should have a good assortment of sterling pieces for sale.
  • Be reasonable in your pricing. Do your homework before going to the shop.
  • Make sure you can remove your sterling from the shop after a reasonable time.
  • Polish your sterling!

I probably would not go to a consignment shop to hunt for pieces to fill in an existing set but if I was in the market for a complete set, I might search there.

I'd be interested in hearing about your experience with such shops. Add a comment or send us an email.
