Do you want to sell a vintage item that you own?

.If you have something vintage that you want to sell:

  • Most folks head for craigslist, ebay, etsy — or, if an item is truly valuable. If you can’t sell it, consider donating it to your local Re-Store.
  • Need a valuation? Research it on Sold Listings on ebay or if it’s truly valuable, go to a licensed appraiser.
  • Please, no buying/selling on the main blog, otherwise it would get way out of control — I will delete these without notice — please put your buy/sell queries on the Forum. Selling steel kitchen cabinets — or other stuff?
  • Note, I used to host a buy/sell forum (with a focus on vintage steel kitchen cabinets) but shut it down in May 2016 due to sparse usage. I think most people are using craigslist now – including search aggregation sites such as searchtempest to extend their search.

We love to hear about and see true woddities — but please don’t email for valuations or to sell stuff:

  • Due to volume, I am unable to reply to requests about how to sell, price, or value other items, or to emails asking me to connect you with someone who has posted previously on the blog. Also, I am not a dealer, I do not buy things from readers.

    Hello –
    I have a 1946 home in Minnetonka, MN and it still has the most amazing charming features, including an original kitchen. Where ought I list so that cool buyers will see it – and possibly save it from a total reno?

    My parents built a custom brick rancher in Collingswood nj back in 1959. It has original brown tile bath and original kitchen. it also has a corner brick fireplace that can be enjoyed from the diningroom and living room. I want to save it from a complete rehab which is what my brothers want. How do I find buyers who would love the house for the mid century modern style?

    I have a black panther tv light that was given to me by my mother. I have seen many others at antique sites but my is still the only outstanding one. The black panther has a tree coming out of the middle with a light surrounded by leaves and branches. It has green leaves with yellow leaves around the light in the middle. I believe it to be circa 1930’s, as I was born in 1933, and remember it sitting atop of our large radio in the middle of the living room where I would sit and listen to the Lone Ranger, and Inner sanctum and other programs and I was around 4-5 years old at that time. I have been letting go of my other collectibles and was wondering if some movie company or others that were looking to have a setting of that time period were interested. The simple black ceramic panther that I had seen listed were selling for $450 with just the panther and a light hanging off of the back. If I can do it I will send a picture of this Panther Light, as I believe there may be very little or none surviving. thanks

    I have an antique white double drain board double cast iron sink with the original metal cabinet for sale. Would anybody be interested. I’m thinking $500.00 for both.
    Will figure out how to post pics if possible

    Hi, I have two boxes of original 4×4 pink tile we recovered from our bathroom. They were added to the house when it was built in 1959. Is there a place I can post them for sale?

    Thank you
