Years ago we had inherited a large home’s worth of pieces – crystal, African masks, signed prints, water colors, tiny sculptures. It was mostly not our vibe, but we could not figure out how to part with it. The variation in types and value would have required us to sell each of about 100 pieces individually, through different channels. Some through consignment, some auctions, some EBay. That was too daunting to cope with.
We turned to Showplace. We sent pictures of everything in advance to give them an idea of what we had. Shawn came to our house one day, looked each item over, taking most (but rejecting a few). Then he offered a price that we found equitable for the bundle. Then yhey packed it all up and wrote me a check. At the end of the day, we felt relieved they had helped us part with so many things that no longer sparked joy, and were hopeful that they will find a place in a home where they do.
