A good antiques dealer?

antique clock faceAJ emails:

A friend of mine wants to sell some antiques she inherited from her father. She hasn't compiled the whole list yet, but wants to know the best place in the Capital Region to sell to. Neither she nor I are from here originally, so we don't have the faintest idea where to start. Any help would be appreciated!

We're guessing it might depend on what you're selling -- but we bet a good dealer will know other dealers for referrals.

So, any suggestions for AJ and her friend? Please share!

You should check with an auction company and ask about consigning the items to auction - this is the way to fetch the best price. They will tell you what the items are worth, and whether or not it's a good time to sell a particular item (the market changes all the time).

I HIGHLY recommend Carlsen Gallery Inc.

Dennis Holzman Antiques. Dennis is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and a good person. He knows everybody, so if he can't handle something that's of value, he knows who will. Highly recommended.
