Milk Glass was made in the US by Westmoreland Glass, Indiana Glass and other companies

in all different shapes from the 1930's to the 1970's. On average, milk glass is valued at $10 to $35 per piece

depending on pattern, shape and maker.

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.
