how to sell my lladro's

ddw962August 8, 2008

Hi,

I've been collecting lladro's for years and now have too many to display so they sit in boxes.

I know I could try to sell on ebay but does anyone know how I would go about finding a buyer who would buy up many pieces? I've called retailers and they provide no info.

While I realize I will probably not see full value of even my oldest retired pieces I am hoping there is a way to get a reasonable amount of their value and know I am selling them to a reputable buyer.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Watch on ebay see who's selling and who's buying, contact those who ser selling and ask them that question. I don't believe ebay will allow you to contact a buyer nor a bidder.
But contacting other Lladro collectors would be your best bet for selling a lot at once.
if you want to get fullv alue you should be thinking of selling them one at a time.

You might try this person. She has helped me in the past & seems quite knowledgeable.

The link that triciae posted seems to have some excellent information although it does say there that they rarely buy whole collections.
I guess it depends on what you are hoping to reap from each piece - the company in the link will buy your pieces, but as they are resellers I wonder if you will get the best price available to you that way.
The thing that would worry me is their statement that the item must be in absolutely immaculate mint condition - often times there is a small flaw in an item that may not be discernible to the average collector, sometimes not even to an expert, but if someone is going to take a microscope to the item, that's a different story.
No offense intended to you, Triciae, as I said I'm sure they are very reputable and for some they may be the perfect solution.
For you, ddw, I think it's silly to rule out ebay for your collection. I have attached the link to today's completed listings for LLadro - it seems that they generally catch a fair price, but again it depends on what your vision of value for each piece is.
