Garage sales poor places to sell collectibles - MLive.com

Garage sales are recycling sales. Contemporary, utilitarian objects that you no longer use but someone else might are garage sale fodder.
If an object is collectible, it should not be sold at a garage sale, but in a venue that attracts competing collectors. What is collectible? The best approach is to assume all pre-1963 objects are collectible.
As a generation ages, its toys are among the first group of objects it collects. Nostalgia for one's youth often strikes in one's late 30s or early 40s. Hence, if you are over 45, your childhood toys are collectible. Toys are just the starting point.
Today's young buyers are brand name conscious. They will pay a premium for brand name goods, far more than the garage sale's 10 cents on the dollar. The brand has to be a big one - Baccarat, Lalique and Waterford in glass; Copeland Spode, Lenox and Wedgwood in ceramics; high-fashion designers in clothing and accessories. Specialized auctions for 1970s to 1990s designer items are a hot trend within the auction community.
Never sell any precious metal or precious or semi-precious stone jewelry at a garage sale.
Do not assume all costume jewelry is nickel and dime garage sale offerings. Quality costume jewelry, especially pieces with a manufacturer's mark or great design, is highly collectible.
The old adage that local material sells best locally applies. Does that mean the best sales venue for local material is a garage sale? No. Think of people who grew up in the town but have moved away. I no longer live in Hellertown, Pa., where I spent my childhood. Yet I do weekly searches for 'Hellertown' on eBay. As a result, my Hellertown collection continues to grow.
