Dealers and resellers are often an interchangeable or overlapping designation. Even the most hardcore collectors can become resellers. Often, as soon as they purchase a “better” piece, they sell off a lower valued piece to upgrade their collections. Dealers operate via storefronts, online venues, or as travelling show participants. Typically, they come to auctions to add to their stock or inventory. Also, the auction venue itself offers an invaluable opportunity, even for the most seasoned ones, to see first hand what market trends are, what is hot and of course what is not.
For us, auctioneers, dealers and resellers are inexhaustible sources of knowledge and we have developed a reciprocating relationship with many of them in sharing information to the benefit of both. For example, dealers appreciate our full disclosure offer, indicating if an item is a reproduction or an authentic.
We offer dealers a venue to sell obsolete stock or a product that has not been selling in a preset time frame: they need to keep their inventory fresh. With our help, they can consign their product knowing that they will get the same attention as all our customers, as well as the benefits of diverse marketing and access to a broader market. Our due diligence will ensure that a fair market value is achieved for every item sold.
