Market for Thimble Lots?

I will eventually post a photo, but I'd like to see if there's a market for a large thimble collection? I have about 400 thimbles in many shapes and sizes, porcelain, lead crystal, wood, and from famous china companies around the world.

I also have a small lot of thimble Christmas ornaments and other items related to thimbles. My question is I don't know where to start and is there a market for thimbles, and is Ebay the place to start? I may need to lookup some thimbles that I have to see if they're worth anything then decide to I sell them individually or in a lot.

Thank you.

I would make smaller lots of mauve 10-20 each. Very few people will want 400, unless they are planning to resell.

If you have that many thimbles you may want to join a collector's club. There may be people searching for some of the thimbles you have. Here are some links for more information:

You can sell your collection on eBay and on RubyLane.
Join a regional or international thimble group in your area and sell your collection to collectors with a similar interest.

Ive seen large and small collections listed for sale on Ebay, but thats why I posted this question. I wasnt sure if there is a market for thimbles and how long those posts have been on Ebay without them being sold.
I can also try an auction on there and place a minimum that has to be met or I wont sell them.
