I have a dresser...

I have a dresser and a cedar hope chest and I know that they are pretty old that I have used for years and now downsizing and want to sell but I have no idea what the value would be I am trying to get an idea if I put them in an antique shop for consignment. Any help would be appreciated

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I’m not sure is it possible to send a pic of what I have to get a ball park idea of what I might be asking for the pieces I am no longer going to be using

1) This is a birdseye maple Empire style bedroom dresser with mirror from circa 1910

and has a value of $600.

2) This is an Ed Roos cedar chest form the 1940's having a value of $225 to $300 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.
