How to get rid of ALL YOUR STUFF...
My friend and co-worker Stephanie Inglis recently joined forces with an online auction company, EVERYTHING BUT THE HOUSE (EBTH). She is expanding it to Fairfield County, Connecticut and let me tell you, this is a fabulous idea and company! I'm actually surprised no one's thought of it before.
EBTH will sell practically everything you want to get rid of, including furniture, dishes, silverware, cookware, paintings & artwork, ceramics, books, tools, outdoor furniture, jewelry and some clothing. They will even sell your car, if you'll let them!
First you decide what you want to sell, then they do the rest which includes cataloging and photographing each item, doing research and writing descriptions. They put it up on their auction website, conduct the week-long online auction and make sure items are paid for and either picked up or shipped to their new owners. If you have items that aren't appropriate for the online auction, they will steer you in the right direction as to getting rid of them as well. The whole idea is to help you sell what you don't want to bring to your next home.
Inglis says they have a subscriber base of 30,000+ clients who regularly search their inventory. Anyone can be a subscriber, including antique lovers, art dealers, regular people like you and me, book collectors, etc. She says in a normal auction, most everything sells and it ALL ADDS UP. For example, you may not get the price you want for your set of six dining chairs, but your dining table, Waterford vase and ceramic candlesticks may sell for more than you bargained! In the end, you get one check from EBTH about three weeks after the close of auction without suffering the work or headache of getting rid of the stuff yourself. Sounds like a dream to me!
