Any luck reselling higher end furniture??

marciab10April 6, 2010

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck reselling higher end furniture, and if so where did you sell it??

Craigs list seems to have all very low cost furniture. I was even told by a poster, that my items looked beautiful, but on craigs list most peopble were looking for bargains.

Maybe the problem is, is that it is contemporary furniture I'm trying to sell? We moved to an old world style home, and we replaced all our newer contemporary furniture.

I am trying to sell a dining room set, that is still available to purchase new, so people can check prices. All my pieces currently list for almost 20k, you can buy on sale for 14-15 and I'm asking 4300, hoping for 4K. Is this unreasonable? I paid 12k 4 years ago in NC.

I'm not sure if its the price or people are tired of contemporary(like I was)

I have so much nice stuff sitting in my basement.. would appreciate any suggestions!

In Portland, you regularly see pretty high end stuff on CL. I'd certainly keep posting it there. With each re-posting (weekly?), try using different (but accurate) descriptions in the title and ad to cover different keywords.

With the markdown you are willing to take, I'd think a consignment store would work. Are there any near you?

If you know any realtors, you might ask them to pass the word to any stagers or developers they know. They usually rent furniture, but many will keep a storage unit full of stuff, especially if they can get a great deal on high-end stuff.
