Why our Online Sales are important
I started selling on the internet back in the
days before eBay on community billboards, which is what Craig's list started
from. Since that time, I have been selling through several venues the most
often one we use is eBay since it is the largest. Sidnee has also been selling
online for years, and is very successful. We can deal with specialty dealers,
and large auction houses when necessary.
We often have items which will not sell for the same amount in our area as
they will sell online to buyers across the globe. Now this doesn't mean that
we are going to list everything in the sale online. To the contrary, we are
very successful obtaining fair market prices for the items we sell.
Many companies don't emphasize the value of the Internet since they have to
hire a web expert which is very costly, and not generally affordable.
Well, Sidnee and I are very competent selling in these venues, so we can
offer this service to our clients
which sets us apart from many other companies.
Below are some examples of items we have sold online and why:
- We were in the initial stages of sorting when we found a pottery
vase. It was down in the bottom of a box with some other things, but not
too special looking. While doing research on the vase, we found that is
could bring $100 or so, but it was larger than most. We decided to list
it, and ended up selling it to a collector for $474.09! At the local
sale, we are sure we would not have been able to get $100. The Vase was
an Arkansas pottery company, and a collector in Little Rock, Arkansas
- We have sold several collector toys like diecast Hot Wheels cars,
firearms, Militaria, Dolls, Electronics, collectibles, artwork,
Automobiles, vintage and antique items, and many, many other items which
we realized considerably more for online and with specialized dealers.
