Have Things to Sell?

We are often asked “Do you buy antiques? Of course we do! We are always on the hunt for new inventory, whether it is one item or an entire house full.  We are also frequently asked, “Do you take things on consignment? While we do occasionally take things on consignment, it is less frequently, and only for “higher end” items.

Here is a list of items that we are always looking for:

  • Furniture – We love painted pieces, American or Continental, both vintage and antique. This includes upholstered chairs with good lines and “good bones”, both fabric and leather, and French country & Italian furniture and accessories.
  • Gold and  Sterling Silver – We also purchase silver-plated items if they are antique (at least 100 years old), but only on a very limited basis.
  • Vintage and Antique Lamps and Other Decor – Check on the “Browse Our Inventory” page to see what kinds of things that we purchase.
  • Vintage Garden Items – Statuary, bird baths, urns, and planters. To qualify as Vintage, these items need to be at least 40 years old!

Please bear in mind that we are a small shop and seldom carry sofas, very large pieces of furniture, or suites of furniture. We also do not purchase Victorian era furniture,  “Colonial Revival” furniture (20th c. American made reproductions that are usually made of mahogany or walnut), and most sets of china and glassware. Again, please visit our “Browse” page to see the types of things that we carry in the shop.

So, if you find that you have things in these categories, send us an email with digital photos attached to sheppardstreetantiques@gmail.com, and we’ll get back to you asap!!

    Thank you very much, however, that would not fit in with the items we sell.

    Good Day,

    I have a clock a lamp and two night stands I want to sell.

  • Blaire:

    Would you be interested in an antique table phone. It’s a marble take with a rotary phone built into it.

    • admin:

      That is not the type of item that we would normally sell but it is difficult to say without seeing it. Can you email us a photo? Thanks!

  • Lynn Niese:

    Sara – you may remember me, I was office manager at Long & Foster and worked with Dennis. I have several pieces I would like to sell; antique secretary desk, vintage mirror, 2 antique pictures & antique dresser. Would you be interested in any of these items or can you direct me to some place else? I will get photos and send tomorrow. Thanks, Lynn

  • Samm:

    My father came across some decorative plates. I’m not sure if we would be interested in selling but if I brought them up there could someone appraise them for us?

    • admin:

      I’m sorry but we do not offer appraisal services. If you would like to provide photos to see if they are something we would be interested in purchasing, please email or send us photos.
      Thank you very much!
