Other Channels to Sell Antique Furniture
You can also sell your 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.
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. Note: Offline auctioneering is limited at present to due to the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

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.
