Please read these guildines before contacting us about selling your items: The number of customers contacting us about items they would like to sell has increased dramatically, so we have a few rules of thumb before you contact us:


Our stores DO NOT purchase antiques, but our dealers do!

E-mailing us pictures of the items you wish to sell is the ONLY way we can relay the information to our dealers.  We have a LOT of dealers, they only way to reach them all in a timely manner is to e-mail them the information. If you don't have a camera or e-mail, perhaps a friend, child or grandchild can help.


  • The dealers do NOT purchase any items that are broken, chipped, scratched or dirty. Please inspect your items and clean them.

  • The dealers are not interested in purchasing the following items: Silver Plate Flatware, clothing (unless civil war or earlier), clear glass, Barbies, Beanie Babies, Dolls

  • Remember: If you are looking up prices on the internet before you contact us to sell, make sure you look in several different spots. For example: Just looking on ebay is not a good way to come up with your selling price. Just because people list their items on ebay for a certain price, does not mean they will sell it at that price. "I saw it listed on ebay for $300.00" is unrealistic when trying to sell to a local antique store.





1.Approximate age

2.Pictures of items

3.Your contact information

4.Price you would like to sell the items for. (Manditory)

Consignment Items

We do occasionally accept consignment items in the stores. The items must be unique, antique, in good working order and valued at over $100.00. Our commission for consignment item's is 15%.


Space is always limited, so check with us and make sure we can find a spot for your item.


You can always send us a picture of an item or items you would like to consign; we will review them and let you know. Just e-mail
