Want to Sell Your Antiques from the Eastern Suburbs, Northern Beaches or Inner West? Selling in Sydney is Easy with Barsby’s
When you’ve spent years and years carefully collecting valuable antiques, you tend to be invested in their future—even if that future involves them leaving your possession. Perhaps you’re arranging for the transfer of your goods at the end of your life and want to make sure they end up in good hands, or maybe you’ve just decided that it’s time to change your surroundings and get rid of some of the pieces you no longer need. In either case, though, it should be possible to earn some money for the work it took to bring together and curate your collection. In a best case scenario, you’d be able to make sure that your old furnishings find new homes with people who will love them just as much as you did, and that you’re fairly compensated in the process.
Is such a scenario possible? Not if you simply sell your antiques to the nearest used furniture store or dealership, and absolutely not if you pawn them. The problem with businesses like these is that their business model revolves around the typical profit margin of selling their pieces at a higher price than they paid for them. As a result, it’s always in their best interests to talk you down to the lowest price possible - meaning that they work against your goal of getting the most possible for your item. An auction, on the other hand, takes a small percentage of what you sell your piece for, which means that they have a vested interest in making sure that you get a good price for it in order to increase their own commission. If you’re trying to sell antiques in Sydney, from the Eastern Suburbs or Northern Beaches to further out areas such as Inner West, your best bet is to find an auction to help you do it.
