Now that you have purchased, collected, and valued your vintage Fiestaware, you may be wondering where you can sell it for a tidy profit. Even though there are many Fiestaware collectors out there, finding one of them may be harder than you think. Still, there are a couple of ways that you can sell your Fiestaware for the right price. Online auction sites are great, but make sure to set a selling price. This way, you won’t lose your prized piece to a low bidder.
The one drawback to an online auction site is the fact that you will be selling your wares among thousands of other people from around the world, so it may be harder to get the price you’re asking for.
Another option is an antique fair. By doing some quick research, you can discover the dates and locations of popular antique fairs (usually during the summer months). If you have enough Fiestaware to set up a booth, you can probably sell a lot of your items to serious collectors. This option may require some travel, but you can always make a vacation out of an antique fair – after all, who doesn’t love scouring stalls for great antiques?
There are websites online that sell vintage Fiestaware. You can contact them and send them pictures of your collection, piece by piece and ask them for a bid. They will be reselling it and you have to factor in shipping. You would probably be better off selling them locally, even on Craig’s LIst so that shipping is not necessary. Prices will be dependent on condition so be fair and take several photos of each piece and close ups of any flaws.
Lastly, you can bring your Fiestaware to an antique dealer. Calling all of the antique dealers in your area may lead you to a person who’s willing to place your goods on consignment or purchase them from you. You may also be able to find an auction house where you can sell your Fiestaware auction-style. No matter which option you choose, keep in mind that there is a market for valuable Fiestaware – you just have to find it.
