Lenox made a few different spice jar series from 1989 to the mid-1990s. For example, Disney, Butterfly, Village, Spice Garden, Carousel, and Cats.

All are valued the same. The rack by itself is worth $25 to $35.

A set of jars have a value of $180 to $225. The clock is worth $30.

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.
