There are several ways to sell your furniture. You can go through a local antique shop or local auction houses. Pawn shops are good for an outright cash sale.
A shop takes in inventory to sell for a profit, so they will offer you a percentage of the price at which they may be able to sell to a willing buyer someday.
An auction house will take a percentage of whatever the end sale price may be.
Another option would be to list your items on Craigslist yourself at a fair price. Craigs is free and they do not take a fee, so that is where you will make the most out of the end price.
Online auction options would be Ebay, Etsy & Chairish. Though bear in mind, those options involve packing and shipping.
