Customer Question

I have a variety of collectibles. Due to bad health, I'm forced to dispose of my property. In my opinion, what I have is above selling on ebay. I prefer a reputable auction house. I can provide photo's. Below is a short list.
24kt coin gold and platinum tea set by arzberg. I had a complete luncheon set but all I have left is tea pot, sugar bowl, creamer, two sets salt-pepper shakers, four cups and saucers, two salad plates.
Blue with pink inside, small vase, small pitcher, candy dish and flower frog.
Royal Winton sugar bowl and creamer "sweet pea" design.
Chicago Worlds Fair employee ID passes, guide book, tickets, accounting-check book of Mission Burgundy Inn and Joe Zelli's Royal Box. Vendors on "Streets of Paris" and two pictures by street artists.
This is only a small number of things.
I'm dying and have no life insurance. My question is, can you tell me the best, ***** ***** way to sell these items for their value? I'm in a bad situation and would appreciate any help you can give me.

Hi Thelma,
My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with this question.
So sorry to hear about your health issues.
The closest reputable auction house I could find that sells this type of material is in Alpharetta. However, you could probably ship your things to them. Here is their contact information:
