Where can I sell my vintage and antique furniture online?
If you are a professional vintage, art or antique dealer and are looking for the right places to sell your vintage pieces and antiques online then there are a variety of avenues available. We’ve made it easy by highlighting some of these options below.
Selling on Hunt Vintage®
Hunt Vintage is one of the fastest growing online marketplaces in the UK and EU, with a large community of targeted shoppers looking for the perfect vintage or antique items for their home, office or interior design projects.

We also provide vintage, art and antique dealers with specialist advertising and promotion, with their pieces put in front of large and targeted audiences from across the World.

The majority of dealers start on our simple commission structure – taken when an item is sold, with no other costs or hidden fees.
Dependant on sales volumes, your business can also make an application to switch to a tailored monthly subscription if desirable, as an alternative to commission – this is of course subject to agreement and approval.
Simply add your vintage and antique pieces to Hunt Vintage, with support from our content creation team, and let us take care of the marketing.
Other Channels to Sell Antique Furniture
You can also sell your vintage pieces and antiques on websites such as eBay or Etsy, however, bear in mind that your items will be sold amidst a range of second-hand items from non-professional and professional sellers. Hunt Vintage is on a mission to change what shopping for antiques or vintage furniture means. You can learn more about our vision and mission here. We also believe in the benefits of shifting from a linear economy to a circular economy, and we hope you’ll join us in this journey.
As an antique or vintage dealer, you will likely be well aware of how to sell via auctions – whether offline or online. Auctioneers can charge up to 25% commission fees on sold items, and you run the risk of the item selling for much less than its true value. It’s therefore a worthwhile channel to explore, but we recommend exercising a degree of caution as well.

Frequently asked questions about vintage and antique furniture
There are a number of channels dedicated to selling vintage and antique furniture online. These include Hunt Vintage, the online marketplace for vintage and antique furniture, eBay, and Etsy. You can also sell offline at market stalls or at Auction Houses.
If you are a professional antique dealer you will already be well versed on what an antique is and what to look out for. However, the two best gauges of an antique are its age and its quality. An antique needs to be over 100 years old.
To have your antique furniture fully appraised you should take it to an appraisal day at a local auction house, attend an appraisal or antique show, do some of your own research into the history of the item or speak to our furniture specialists – email@example.com – we would be happy to help.
The short answer is yes. If an item of furniture is worth thousands of pounds and its original finish is modified or painted it will likely reduce its value. We advise that you do some thorough research into the value of the piece, before making any adjustments.
Hunt Vintage is on a mission to create a more circular economy, one where quality vintage and antique furniture items are reused for many generations. Our research shows that a growing number of consumers across the EU are now actively looking at alternatives to the heavily industrialized furniture manufacturers we are all now so used to.
