Hello,

The best thing to do with household's worth of antiques is to consign to a good local auction house. If you call and ask for a house call, they come to you and do sort of a free appraisal, letting you know what will sell well in their auction. If you consign, they take it away, sell it, and give you a chech 14 to 45 days later minus their 15 to 20% commission. The best folks to start with is Heritage Auctions in Dallas. They have an online presence as well as live floor bidding which helps bring more money for you. Their phone number is(###) ###-#### ***** is their site so that you can see how it all works. http://www.ha.com/
