Pumpkins, Christmas trees, decorations galore, and holiday parties are all around the corner, which means you’ll need as much space as you can find in your home to fit it all! But what to do with all those old, dusty boxes or the unused furniture stashed in the attic. Consigning your antiques and collectibles might be the solution for you.

Not only will you be targeting the right audience of consignment store shoppers, but these places often take credit cards, meaning consumers will likely pay and/or buy more. And you can see how other sellers valued their own antiques; you can even ask the manager at the consignment store for a quote or appraisal in order to determine its market value.
‘Tis the season to consign your antiques. This early? Yes. Recent statistics show that in 2015, 20% of consumers began their holiday shopping in October, jumping to 42% in November. That means your antique collectibles will have a strong audience in the coming weeks, so it’s time to…
