I inherited from my mom a 50-75 piece collection of depression

Customer Question

I inherited from my mom a 50-75 piece collection of depression blue glass. I'd like to sell the whole collection as individually most of the pieces aren't worth a lot. Can I do that online or should I go through auction? Dealer

The best thing to do in your case is to contact an antiques auction that also has an online presence ( and/or You can go on either of these websites and do searches by zip code, region so that you could find one nearest to you (pick the largest city near you for best prices at auction) . If you consign, they will take it away for you and handle everything. This will cost a 10-20% commission off of the check that they would send you 14 to 45 days after the auction.
