AUCTION MARKET NEWS: Be Weary of those Antique Dealers By Larry Koon: Have you ever went to all the trouble bringing all your antiques & collectibiles down out of the attic.. and ending up carrying them rig...

Have you ever went to all the trouble bringing all your antiques & collectibiles down out of the attic.. and ending up carrying them right back up, , not finding anyone willing to pay you even a third of what the item is actually worth .
Remember, an antique or collectibile is only worth what a buyer is actualy willing to pay, to get top dollar for your item it must be up for bid amongst hundreds of buyers around the country,
for instance, you have an elvis record worth hundreds of dollars, that was first released in the early
50s that elvis never sang a note on, which was an interview record by tv guide magazine .
you dont call a local antiques dealer to try and sell it, , you dont even try to get hold of an elvis collector , and you dont consign it to a local auction house who sells everything from appliances to furniture, with 25 to 30 buyers bidding on it , you would be glad to get 20.00 after all the auction fees, you can just imagine what a valuable painting such as mona lisa would bring at a local auction house .with 25 to 30buyers bidding on it,
So where do i sell the record? you consign it to an auction house that specializes in the sale of old records, they have a mailing list of thousands of buyers around the country that buy old records, these are buyers that they contact on an upcoming auction , and are very much willing to out bid another collector,
once your item sells, that is exactly what your item is worth, their is no fortune teller, no dealer, not even an antiques appraiser or an antiques newspaper columnist today . such as myself can tell you what your item is worth,
we can give you an esimate what it might bring at auction or what it last brought at auction nothing else, for example a american bisque cookie jar produced in williamstown ,w,va sold recently for 5..500 this same cookie jar ever selling for that price again is a question? next time around it could go for less or more, depends on what a buyer is willing to pay ,by outbidding another buyer,
when i first got into antiques , i wasnt so much in wanting to know what every thing is worth, everyday these prices change, what i wanted to know is where to sell these items for what they list for in price guides, today their is over 300 specialized auction houses around the country , who have set worlds record on selling items from A to Z, such as books, records, posters, pottery glass, postcards, comic books, old stamps, coins and hundreds of other items, i was first to write the book i n2 000 on specialized auction markets, titled North American Auction Markets , which i update every year,
The next time you have a garage sale, and a man or woman pulls up in your driveway,usualy before anyone else gets there, and most likely driving a better car than you, and everything you have in your sale is not worth a plug nickel, but still willing to take it off your hands for a low price, be weary,they love meeting someone like you that hasnt the slighest idea in this world what your items are worth, these people are called dealers, and they love to prey on people just like you, its their job, their way of living ,
