Selling Antique and Collectible China?

I have several patterns of china that I would like to sell in the most profitable and safe way. I know about Craigslist and Replacements, Ltd. Are there any other ways to sell china? Some are antique and the other patterns are very


pricey patterns. I just need to make some extra money and not get ripped off. Advice is desperately needed!
Thank you.

eBay and Etsy may get you the best money. But they will sit, in many cases for weeks or months until the right buyer comes along. Both online sales and Replacements involve shipping, which as of late us a disaster waiting to happen with broken items.

If you can find a good consignment store to sell them for you, it may be the most logical way to sell. Best wishes!

If I had a daughter who was getting married, I'd recommend that she not register for china. For one thing, tastes change as we get older, and for another people don't give fancy dinner parties as much as they used to.


I didn't register for china for either of my weddings. I did register for Franciscan pottery which I used for everyday for years. But now, it's all wrapped up and in a high cabinet, and has not been out for almost 20 years. I got new Fiestaware when we moved to a new house.

Our church rummage sales have had boxes of nice china sit there all day, and nobody is interested in them, so they get donated at the end of the day. My mother gave me her incomplete set of Japanese china that her brother got her in the 50s. It's pretty, but still wrapped up and in another high cabinet. I've going to give it to my cousin.

If I have a large gathering, we use those red plastic plates.

Instead of having people spend a lot of money on something that might not be used, let them give you useful things. Somebody gave us a silver relish tray and we traded it in on a Hibachi that we wore out. (Polishing silver is one of my least favorite things to do.)

I am in the same situation. I called several dealers. Tbey were not interested in buying from me. They told me I had the best chance of selling it by putting it up on eBay.
