Where to Sell your Asian Antiques

Have you been wondering where to sell your Asian antiques? You may want to sell Asian collectibles or antiques but are not sure exactly where to sell these. There are a number of different places you can sell your Asian antiques and knowing where to go is going to be the key to your successful sale. Here are a few ideas about where to go to sell your Asian pieces.

Asian Antiques Online

Naturally, one option is to sell your Asian antiques online. Some options for online sales include eBay. Sellers sell everything from antiques to armoires in these sites and you will find a good market of interested sellers for your antiques. Before you actually push through and start your listing, it is a good idea to check out other similar items and see what price range the other pieces are selling for. Price your item according to the going market prices for a more successful sale. Appropriately pricing your item will garner more interest from buyers. There are procedures to listing Asian antiques. Knowing what these are will help you get your listing live sooner. If you have never sold online before, there are various tutorials you can watch to get you started on your first successful sale. Of course, knowing the risks and the precautions to take will also be to your advantage. For example, shipping breakable items may cost more and reflecting this on your listing will help avoid any unnecessary hidden charges for your buyers.

Asian Antiques at Consignment Shops

You may have consignment shops in your area or online that are willing to help you sell your Asian antiques. Consignment shops will need to actually display your item, or at the very least, show a picture of it with a number to call for interested buyers. The advantage of a consignment shop is that you won’t really have to do any work as they will do the selling. The disadvantage is that they will take a percentage of the final price, so you won’t get the full price when the item is sold. Pricing the item appropriately will ensure a win-win situation. Finding a consignment shop with experience selling antiques will help your items sell faster than approaching consignment shops that don’t have experience with Asian antiques.
