Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.

Thank you for this estimate. It's a good starting point. I did have one question about these numbers. Is this what we would expect to receive if we sold the items ourselves (e.g., on ebay)? Or is this what we would expect to receive if we sold on consignment or at an auction? Obviously if we sell on consignment or at auction, we will pay a fee to the store or auctionhouse, but I also do not know if the prices above would be the same.

These prices are what you would ask if you sold them yourselves.

Consigning them to auction houses really varies depending on

where the auction house is located. Best results would be at a place that is in a large city

and one that offers online bidding as well as live bidding. Those tend to bring closer to

these prices I've given. At a small town country auction with no online bidding, you would expect to get 40%

of these prices.

Thanks - that is what i figured.

I must be the last to answer in this thread so that the question will close.
I look forward to working with you again soon.
