You have a dining room set made by Drexel Heritage Furniture from their Sandia (not Scandia) line of

furniture that was produced beginning in 1972. Your dining table and chairs has a retail value of $400

and the buffet has a value of $200.00 on the secondary market.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, Furnishly.com, Deconet.com, Lushpad, Krrb.com, and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit the submit button, thanks!
