Hi Again

The picture is pretty dark, I cannot make this out very well. Also it seems to be over sized. It looks to me a Mission Style Library table, is that correct?

Just a heads up, do not ask too many questions in a short period of time, my customers who did this had their accounts flagged by the system, and then suspended, I would spread these out over a few days. I just thought I would let you know what happens so this does not happen to you.

I suspect this library table could be from the Mission period.
Thanks for your advice. I'm asking a lot of questions today because I believe my 7-day membership expires today. I don't mean to kill the messenger, but it seems unethical for an active account to be suspended because of multiple questions. What should I do if that happens to me?

Hello

Well when you read their statement on their page, they state they reserve the right to suspend accounts if they deem abuse. My customers told me that. Appraisers are not employees we come to the site to answer questions customers ask.

If you get suspended, you should contact customer service.

Yes Better

The Oak Library Table, has an estimated value of $***-**-****.00. The Hand carved. cane bottom chair-$150.00-165.00

Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Offerup.com, Varagesale.com, Wanelo.com, www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com and letgo.com. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
