Additional information about the items and this department:
If it is a collectible, we will have it. When grandma moves into a condo and needs to downsize, the family needs a place to offer all of her unwanted china and crystal to others. We are that place. The beautiful assortments of Lenox dishes and Spode vases come to our department. We often get treasures when the family has no idea of the value. Our department of collectibles is where people shop for the finest of everything special. In addition, we have flutes and clarinets, drums and trumpets as well as accordions. We can’t wait to see what treasurers will arrive this year and be available for others to put to good use.
When we get donated items we clean everything, wash the dishes, clean the copper and silver and all the crystal. Clocks and the musical instruments are tested. Dish sets are priced as sets and the individual pieces individually. Several items have Silent-Auction bid sheets, and this year we have added a BUY IT NOW PRICE option on the bid sheets.
Depending on the condition, keyboards and guitars are either individually priced or placed on a Silent-Auction bid sheet. Drum sets and amplifiers are usually on the Silent-Auction bid sheets.
