Hello Everyone! New here. I need some advice on selling some of my Grandmothers collection she had for many years. I have things like old dolls, plates, cups, old pictures, old lamps, and much more.

I am wondering what would be the best way to sell these items? I thought about eBay and other websites, but wanted to ask here as I know I’d get good info about selling. I’d also like to know what pricing would be for these items.

Any suggestions on what I should do would be greatly appreciated! Here is a photo of some plates, and the name on the back says Lynmore Fine China Japan Romance. I have many other types of these old things that I am overwhelmed..lol

Thanks in advanced!

Just reduce the size of the pics !! This site has a 2MB max on file size !! That is for one pic,, 1000MB for 2 ect !! Most phones are way oversized for this site !! Use the size that you used on the first pic !! That worked well !!

The photos didn’t upload for some reason. Perhaps I should do 1 at a time?

Hello Marthahill,

Thanks very much for your reply! I have so many items and such that it is overwhelming. I have been sorting items out and cleaning them, then wrapping newspaper around them, and putting the items into plastic totes for organization.

Also, thanks for mentioning about Craig’s List. I am aware about the dangers letting people come to your home. I would meet them like you suggested in a public parking place. I believe that eBay may be a good option for most of the smaller items that could be shipped without large shipping charges. I do have other items that would be of lesser value that I could also have a big garage/yard sale.

I have tried selling some other larger items such as washer and dryer on Facebook around my area, but the response and views are not that good. I imagine I will have to try some other avenues for the bulky items.

I believe that the photos I posted in my first post are dinner plates. I will try and see what others are going for on eBay to get an idea of how much I should ask. I don’t mind taking a few dollars off to get sales, as I have a ton of this type of stuff to get rid of..lol..Here is a photo of an item that looks to be a vase? Not sure..lol..I have a rug that I need to see the value for. I have included a photo below as well. See photos below.

I’ll try and list more items here as I get more photos. Perhaps you could let me know what you think would be best to do with things that may have a higher dollar value. Thanks again for kindness and info! Take care and God bless!

Is this a dinner set or a tea set ?? As the back stamp says it was made in Japan most likely about mid century or a little later !! The florals were popular back then !! Romance is the pattern name !! You can look on Ebay and find out what people are asking for items from this company but asking price and getting price are not always the same !! I would advise you to count the pieces in this pattern and try to sell as a set on Craigslist or another local site !! Just remember to be careful who you deal with !! There are scammers on all these sites !! Never let anyone inside your house and always have people with you when they pick the item up or meet them somewhere very public !! Grocery store parking lots work well if you park close to the front door !! Not trying to scare you but it pays to be careful !! If there is something you are uncomfortable with just ask here or don`t answer the email or call !!
For smaller items you can send through the mail,,ebay is what I would use !! You can use the auction mode or Buy it now !! Just post anything here that you need help pricing !! Most things can be found using a google search or on ebay !! You can check the sold items on the ebay page to see what the actual selling price is !! Look in the left column or click the “refine list or whatever it says,, may be “refine settings”” at the top of the page then check the left column toward the bottom of the list !!
Will try to help as much as possible !!
