I have a standard furniture of Seattle Buffet and wondering what it's worth cuz I have to get rid of it

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

We live in Polson Montana so there's not very many appraisers around here

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I could send pictures

A Standard Furniture of Seattle buffet/sideboard

in a Jacobean style from the 1920's through 1940's has a current value of

$400 resale.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are www.loveseat.com (in CA),
Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), http://www.revueconsignment.com/ (in Ohio),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, 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.
They do all of the work and you get a check 14 to 45 days after the sale minus their 15% to 25% (negotiable!) commission.
