How and where to sell sterling silver Flatware & Hollowware

This page will help you understand the industry and maximize your profit from your collection.

When most people finally decide to sell their flatware set, silver collection or inherited items, they can get misguided or very confused by trying to obtain their own initial self-educated evaluation.

While it is possible for you to try and sell the items yourself, many people waste time and money and ultimately end up frustrated without a buyer or sell at a much lower price than initially determined.

The most profitable and efficient way for you to sell your sterling silver is to call a silver specialist who deals only in flatware and hollowware. Specialist have years of industry experience, a complete understanding of market trends, realized price structure, demand and availability of product.

Take these things into consideration:

  • How much time, effort, and risk do you want to invest into selling your unwanted pieces?
  • How quickly are you looking to sell your item(s)?
  • How much experience and knowledge do you have about our industry?
  • How would you feel if you sell an item based on your research for $1,000, but it is worth much more?
