I have a round solid oak table. It is 24" high and I'm thinking 48" round. I want to sell this. Where should I try to sell it?

It would help if I knew who manufactured it. Some brands are more expensive than others.

Check the bottom for any markings. From looking at it it just looks like a regular old table which could have been mass manufactured; besides it looks as if the varnish has been water damaged on one side.


Random pedestal oak tables seem to be selling new for $229 but you can probably expect a lot less for it, maybe $150 because it lacks chairs and is not 'new'

Take a digital photo and advertise it for free on Craig's List, or place an ad in your local newspaper. Or if you know someone who sets up and sells at a flea market, ask them to sell it for you.

Craigslist works well. However, for your safety, take the table outside of your house (like on the driveway), don't let strangers into your house and if, possible, have someone else there (husband, friend) when they come to view it.


We had a small local selling paper (Thriftynickel) in which you could place an ad cheaper than the newspaper. My daughter's town has a garage sale "group" on yahoo which is also free. You join free, can buy and sell just by emailing the group. Check and see if yours has one.

There are several things you need to consider when trying to determine the value of your furniture.


  1. First can you locate a name or brand mark anywhere so we can determine who made it.
  2. Once you know who made it, it will then be easier to determine when and where it was made
  3. You can then calculate how much it was worth when it was first made and depending on how old it is the value will have either gone up if its old or gone down if its not been to long.
  4. Just in my opinion, it doesn't look like it would be antique but it does look like very nice wood. It seems to look like it has been taken care of well and in good shape. Im sure it once had a dining room table to go with it at one time. Most buffets I've seen such as that usually do. I would say its worth at least $500.00, but that is just me pulling a number out of my head. I could be way off or close to what someone would be willing to pay. I wouldn't let it go to cheap that much im sure of.
