I Inherited Fiesta But I Want to Sell It

Posted on September 10, 2009 by FiestaFan

This is the lasted letter I received. Any advise from you would be appreciated:

I inherited fiestaware from my great aunt that are very expensive pieces i am told. I do not have the full set but was interested in possibly selling them.
Do you know the best way to go about doing that?

My answer: If it was me, this is what I would do. If you don't know the names of the pieces, years they were made, etc, I would buy a fiestabook (there is a link for them from Amazon on my http://www.fiestawarecollectorscorner.com) or just hang out at Barnes and Noble if there is one close. You need to know what pieces, what sizes, and what colors you have. Some colors are much more rare, like medium green. You need to know a 8 " plate from a 9" plate and a cereal bowl from a fruit bowl, etc. The books have good pictures and detailed descriptions. Check my full site and read about how to read the bottom date stamps and look at the history page this might help you with dates.

After I figured out what I have and made a list of it, I would go to http://www.get4it.com and http://www.mpire.com and look up what those pieces are currently bringing. If you buy a recent book, they will have some suggested prices but probably be out-of-date.

With a list of what you have and what it is currently going for, then it depends on your goal. Do you want to just get it out of the house and don't care about money? Call a local antiques dealer and tell them what you have and they will be happy to give you a few bucks and take it away. No work, but less money. If your goal is to get as much money out of it as possible, then that will mean selling it yourself. I do suggest eBay or Craigslist. Make sure if you list it on eBay you put it in the right category and list a minimum based on what you learned at mpire.com or get4forit.com

Without knowing what you have, that is my advise to get you started.
