Fiesta® Collection – What if you want to sell?

Posted on August 15, 2009 by FiestaFan

I received this question and gave the following answer. Does anyone have better advise?

I want to sell my entire collection of Fiesta, both vintage & contemporary. It's not a very large collection & I have no inventory. But it would take quite a long time to start trying to sell it a piece at a time on ebay. Besides, it's been so long since I've messed with any of it, I don't even know what it's worth anymore. Do you know of anyone who evaluates things like this. Or maybe someone who purchases in larger lots? I'd like to find someone I can trust.

Answer: I think you have a couple of choices. First, go to http://www.get4it.com and look up the pieces and see what they have been selling for on ebay. All fiestaware prices are down, so if you could keep it another year or two you will get more money for it then.

I would group it together in colors. There are plenty of people that prefer certain colors and like to fill in sets. Put the groups on ebay per color.

Another idea would be Craig's List. Then you could sell all of it at once and wouldn't have to worry about shipping.

You could look up prices and set up a fiestaware garage sell and list it on Craig's list. You will have lots of people show up to take it off your hands. You will have to already know your prices.

There are also consignment stores all over the country.

I would start with got4it and go to ebay and go to where it shows closed sales. You can put in your pieces and get the prices they sold for, then go from there. Group by color, and/or by expensive and inexpensive pieces. Also, look the pieces up on Ebay.  You can find out what they sold for.  Ebay is the best place to sell, good prices and low cost for selling.

I don't know anyone to suggest for pricing. It all changes so often and the pieces have to be looked over very carefully usually in person. Use craigs list to advertise for someone to evaluate your collection, but ask for references.

Anyone else have any ideas?

    Having found a few 5 piece sets of lilac for dirt cheap, I was looking to offload a few of them. I got in touch with Replacements Ltd. They sell a 5 piece place setting for $209 and offered me $62 dollars per set. Needless to say they’re still in a box in my basement.

    But if you have a bunch, you could send them a list of your colors and they will send you a list of how much they will buy it for. You still have to get it to them, and they would still have to accept it… having not sent them anything I don’t know how that part is. I’ll probably ebay this stuff if it doesn’t sell out of my mother-in-laws’ antique booth.
